This trail would start right at the shore of the reservoir and climb up to a high ridge and eventually a peak (although I didn’t make it that far)

The reservoir at first light

After pedaling around a low ridge and then up a side canyon, the trail eventually brings you to a higher ridge overlooking the reservoir again

As the trail climbs the ridge you get a slightly different perspective of the reservoir

The trail then climbs a little further and crosses into a north facing pine canyon. After the pine canyon the trail crests a higher ridge offering a different vantage

I like how the creek in the valley is catching the sun. Like a shinny ribbon

From here you can look the other way – down to the Wasatch Front

This was then end of the trip for me. This snowbank was not too bad, but the trail then crossed over to the north face again and there was more snow/mud, so I decided to turn around and enjoy the downhill.

This ride ended up at about 7 miles with 3,000’ elevation gain/loss. It was a trail I had never ridden or hiked before and I was pleasantly surprised. Feels great to get out!
