    We were told by a guy working there that they do have plans to extend up to the top. I think he said they were thinking another 7 - 10 miles.

We ran into moto's at the bottom near the reservoir, but otherwise didn't see anyone on the trail. Mosquito's were out in force, so if you go up there where bug spray.
    AF is great. Riding there is as much about knowing where not to go as it is knowing where to go. Though, that is vastly easier now in the Trailforks age. You can do some epic point-to-point rides from PC or SLC via those trails. This was a fun adventure: https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...-City-to-Provo

    Was Tibble still closed?

    I took my son on a 4x4 adventure up to the end of FR322 last summer. That whole basin has HUGE potential.

    Yeah, Tibble is closed. We stopped and walked down the trail maybe 50 or 75 yards, it is bad shape. Probably a smart move to have it closed. But staying on Mud Springs down to Mill Canyon was really fun. The trail was in good shape.
    Thanks Shane

    Contrary to popular belief, there's still single track to be had in Park City.

    Crest is riding nicely. 3 snow patches and 2 downed trees on little water if you go out millcreek. Get it before the road opens!

    Good running into you yesterday, however briefly. People were stacking up there and it was time to GTFO!

    Met up with some friends and did Jenni's/Tommy's/3 Candles/Apex/Shadow Lake/Pinecone ninja connector/Pinecone/Spiro. Good times.

    No info on the top, we descended it from the Shadow Lake sneaker entrance. Completely dry from where we dropped in though.

    I see, I didn't realize there was a sneak entry. I'll have to head up today and do a little searching.

    That road you cross when you're getting close to the switchbacks near the top connects to the shadow lake road near the top of the shadow lake singletrack.

    Thanks. I didn't realize that was the same road. I've only been riding up there since last year so I'm still figuring shit out.

    To be clear, it connects to, but is not, the SL road. There's not much reason to go that way most of the time, but we had topped out the SL singletrack and rather than just turning around thought we'd explore a little bit. It's pretty obvious that virtually no one travels through there.

    If you got the time this week, the trails in upper millcreek are riding great, although there is some deadfall on the trails. It was great being up there yesterday afternoon and seeing so little people out there. rode up from birch hollow to the crest and then back down, only saw two other bikers from the start of my ride until I got back down to the bottom of great western. I've been riding the crest for 20 years and i've never not seen people on it so it felt really special. that route was also an ass kicker for this fat kid clocking in at ~26 miles and 4400 vert, but I guess I'm in bike shape now.

    Rode Crest for the first time last night. So much fun, such great views. Saw only 3 other people from top of Great Western to the road. That part of the trail was my favorite...probably not quite as fast once the gate opens I've got to imagine

    rode some old school PC trails yesterday with my old man who is 68 years old and still going strong. We were going to do spin cycle, but he wasn't feeling the climb out so we turned around at the end of outlook and then I added like 10 more miles of singletrack like a jackass, but damn it had been awhile since I rode a bunch of those trails around solomere and I think we both were stoked on it! Turned out being his most miles in a single ride this year at just under 16 miles total.

    I really have to stop doing that to people, the old "let's just check out this trail, I don't think it'll be much more distance/climbing." At least my wife is used to it now. Not as cool when its with your dad who had open heart surgery a few years back though.

    For those of you not on facebook, PSA to be careful about where you park if you are riding the Crest out Millcreek. They have towed cars parked at Dan's and now UTA is threatening to tow cars parked at the 3900 S park and ride.

    So dumb! A few weeks ago the lady at Einsteins told us not to park in their lot cuz the landlord or whatever of the stripmall had been towing cars lately...

    You would think the grocery store and little restaurants would want the foot traffic of hungry mountain bikers ...

    Makes sense to me. That UTA lot is packed, I'd be pissed if I was about to take a bus and couldn't park there. Then again, I've never thought of this until this thread, I've always parked there without thinking it through. Mainly because Big Rack Shuttles meets there. Dans seems like there is plenty of room though, but it's private property so oh well. Parking at Einstein's seems like a dick move, that place is small and has a lot of traffic.
