High Point

This shortened version of the classic Wasatch Crest ride is great for odd-numbered days when bikes are restricted in Upper Millcreek Canyon. The Wasatch Crest provides some of the best high alpine riding in the state. Please be careful of hikers when descending on Mill D, it can get quite crowded.

Unpacked snow and mud throughout. Only about 25% of the trail is good to ride. Probably not best to ride.

More snow than anticipated. Snow covered 50% of trail, not packed in several places. Prevalent mud and wet otherwise. Took Desolation, Dog Lake and Big Water down to Millcreek. All were snow covered, packed or muddy. Not recommended for riding.
