Sheep and game trails connect to make a sweet 8.5 mile "adventure" mountain bike loop just south of the small town of Spring City, UT. Additional loops are off the "master loop" to make for a longer ride. Trails are not marked so follow the bike tracks and use GPS. Beautiful views of Mount Nebo and Horseshoe Mountain. Best to ride clock-wise for fun downhills and good climbs. There are multiple dirt roads too. Sheep are sometimes grazed here during the summer months (June/July). Please close gates if you find them closed. This will likely only be the first "pallet" gate at the start and end of the ride. Please no dirt bikes.

Disclaimer

Multi use with some horse tracks. Mostly game trails that have been connected to make a fun loop

      We did some “maintenance” this weekend and the Master Loop is in great condition.

      Sometimes you can't tell where the trail is. It's brand new and needs work.

       The Master Loop is in nearly perfect condition right now! Dry, but sooooo good! Ride clockwise for best climbs and descents!
