Corner Canyon

25 Feb

Thanks to Tony P for the tip on Corner Canyon conditions. Spot on. You can climb almost to the top on the upper road, all completely rideable right up until you hit this glacier at the first switchback before the top.

What a difference a week makes. The single track connecting the upper Corner Canyon road to the single track from the equestrian center is totally rideable as is all the lower sandy single track.

All the stuff in the ravine and North facing is hike only. Including Ghost Falls and Clarks.

There is at least a solid hour and a half worth of rideable dirt right now in Corner Canyon. Time to break out the Jabberwocky and start the 4:00 EQ meetings.

Edit: Ditto on good trail conditions for the North bound Bonneville Shoreline Trail from the upper CC road to just below Scout Bridge.

    Wow, I rode this Saturday and it was completely unridable, due to mud. I barely got to the Clark’s trailhead.

    It was a nice lunch ride.

    There are a few things to be aware of:

    – A big front end loader has been going up and down the dirt road in the bottom of Corner Canyon and made a mess. I could ride most of it, but a few spots were too messed up (muddy, soft, ruts) and I walked around them. You’ll see the big berm it piled up where the lower single-track joins the dirt road.

    – Most north-facing slopes have snow on the trail, but most you can ride around. (One out on north BST is a walk.)

    But still plenty of dirt to ride, just a few wet, snowy, muddy, dug up spots. By this weekend it should be completely clear (except the heavy equipment messes).

    Brad- I’ll be at the next 4 meeting. Will there be refreshments?

    I was up in the CC early Saturday morning. Rode for 1.5 hours, 7 miles. Good conditions. Hope the warm weather keeps up!

    Brad,
    Visiting from Fatty’s – I know you have property down in Gooseberry. A couple of buddies and I are planning on heading down that way in April for some riding. They live in UT, I’m coming from the East Coast (I used to live in Ogden until I got sent to hell…military).
    Anyway, it’s been a long time since I was down that way and then I was all into climbing back then. My trips to UT are usually for racing, not playing. I’m wondering – do you know if there are any MTB guidesheets for the area? Any trails I shouldn’t miss?
    Thanks,
    BB
