A nice way to access the Wasatch Back without having to drive to Park City. Begin the loop from Guardsman Pass located up Big Cottonwood Canyon. A nice, long, scenic loop while also keeping the elevation gain/loss in check. The return climb sees a lot of deep shade, great for a mid-day summer ride.
