High Point

Weekends get crowded, and coming down requires a lot of stops

If you are going to tackle Park City and you are starting from the north end, this is a must do loop. The climb (or descent) on the west part of Flying Dog offers shady trees and fun bridge across a beaver damp and you make your way up to the top. It is also a ripping descent with fast transitions. The east side of the loop is more exposed to the sun, but gives the rider a rolling hills and open wetland meadows as you make your way around the Glenwild area.

All the trails are intermediate with many areas you could consider beginner, and makes a good ride to take relatively new riders out for a nice ride. I often see whole families riding the loop, though climbing up Flying Dog on either side requires good to great fitness, and is steep in spots.

 Great loop with fun climbs and awesome descents (particularly if Flying Dog isn't busy - beware of uphill traffic) If you are looking for some extra miles consider taking Preserve Connector back to the top for a second lap down Flying Dog. It is well worth it.

The first part, short sections of that 3/10 of a mile of CCW downhill in the trees, was slick and muddy at about 3pm. All the other shady, north facing trail was frozen. If thawed it would have been muddy. The air temp at the TH was about 47 and in the shady trees on the loop it was about 40 deg. And only 2 or 3 riding the wrong way - which is clockwise. Please ride CCW. It's more fun that way.
