Some of these trails are remote and see very little use.

Wasatch Trailroad is a route I've been planning for a while. A few years back, I rode up LCC to Catherine's Pass and then down Ridge Trail 157 (rough and steep both ways) and then down American Fork Canyon road. Took little over five hours. While that was a great ride, a good chunk of it was on gravel roads and pavement. Why not make it a point to point ride and have it be nearly 100% singletrack?

This is intended to be a one day epic group ride through the heart of the Wasatch Mountains, sometime during the summer or fall of 2017. The plan is to ride this route starting in Orem at the mouth of Provo Canyon and end at Millcreek. However, it would be possible to ride it in the other direction. Refuel at Brighton Resort midway through the ride. Granted, this will be a brutal day in the saddle, but spending all day in the mountains on bike makes the suffering worth while.
