Utah Mountain Bike Trail Guide

Utah Mountain Bike Trail Guides

When it comes to riding mountain bikes, Utah features some of the most iconic MTB trails in the world. From scenic cross country and the manicured downhills of Park City to the technical red rock of Moab, when it's time to dust off the bikes, Utah should be your first stop. 

There are great trails close to all major cities, weaving through every type of environment from evergreens to cacti. Riding in Salt Lake offers late-season options close to home, and plenty of bike parks to keep you busy when life neccesitates shorter rides. Park City has something for every ability and offers an escape in the summer when the big city gets too hot and dusty for daytime riding. Moab comes alive in the shoulder seasons, with its iconic National Parks and small-town off-roading culture. Venture out to St. George and Richfield for lesser-known yet spectacular desert riding, south of Utah's best ski slopes.

The dirt in Utah can be dry, rocky, and technical, even in the wide open spaces of the desert. But whether you're looking for Red Bull Rampage sized drops or bermy, meandering blues, the high-elevation riding in Utah truly has something for everyone to enjoy.
