Some greasy spots in shady areas. Nothing wet enough to stick to tires.

Large tree down across trail, blocking trail. Can work your way around. It's bushy...but maybe only blocking 10' of trail length.

 10/13/18 6 pm Breathtaking views of Snowbasin (SB) ski resort from East Fork Trail and from the Green Pond trailhead. I rode the East Fork to Wheeler Canyon 10 mile loop.

Good conditions on this East Fork trail and the Wheeler Canyon trail. Green Pond and other trails in the SB area were wet.

A few minutes after I got on the East Fork trail, I had to stop because of a big tree branch (please see picture) that fell on the East Fork trail; I had to get off my bike and raise it up on a wheelie to get passed this obstacle. I did this twice: on my way to Wheeler Canyon and on my way back to Green Pond trailhead.

Good conditions on this East Fork trail and the Wheeler Canyon trail. Green Pond and other trails in the SB area were wet.

I had so much fun, even though it was 45F to 50F… (1) Wheeler Canyon downhill was surreal, with lots of happy hikers smiling, and zero snow. (2) East Fork coming back offered me “live postcards” of my surroundings that are engraved in my heart.

Warning! ... A few minutes after leaving Green Pond trailhead, I had to stop because of a big tree branch that fell on the East Fork trail (please see picture); I had to get off my bike and raise it up on a wheelie to get passed this obstacle.

 Love riding East Fork. You can loop East Fork to Wheeler Canyon to Middle Fork if you're up for some punchy uphill climbing on Middle Fork. East Fork contains many rollers that can be jumped without having to carry too much speed. Totally optional though. You should expect to encounter some horse tracks/postholeing, but I never found it to be a distraction or problem. Mixed use trail so plan to encounter hikers and be respectful.

The descent down East Fork is superior to the descent coming down Middle Fork in my opinion. Climbing this trail from the Art Nord parking lot and then descending is also a viable option and will give you a feel of what to expect when you turn around and point it downhill. Overall a great trail to work on cornering, small jumps, with very few technical features if you decide to ascend from Art Nord.
