Trail Description
About this trail
This is a real great loop. This climbs up about 2.5 miles on Coldwater
Overlook Trail where the trail cuts back to the left or out to the right
climbing toward Sardine Peak. Heading to the left will take you a half mile
up to the Coldwater Overlook, well worth the extra riding. Heading over to
Sardine you will have some more climbing and will pass two trails on your
left, the second one being right as you're coming around to a view down to
Pine View Dam. You then have some fun fast switchbacks until you cross a
bridge connecting you with the Maples Trail. If you parked at Snowbasin
head up Maples to the DT, or you can head back down Maples. Great ride,
great views.

Review: We rode this trail tonight, starting at the upper Snow Basin parking lot. We rode it clockwise, please, everyone, ride it clockwise. After the downhill, we turned down Middle Fork and up to Green Pond parking lot, rode the lower half of Green Pond trail back to the Snow Basin lodge. Turned an 8 mile ride into a 14 mile ride with 2 great climbs and downhill sections. Took us 2 and half hours and was a blast.

Review: I ride Snowbasin A LOT and this new trail has quickly become one of my favorite rides. It's got a great climb to burn some calories, the views above Pineview are awesome, and the downhill feels twice as long as it should's just a great ride!

Similar Trail: The entire Snowbasin area has a great trail system!
