Mountain Biking Antelope Island

There is some interesting singletrack out here, but you've got to fight your way through a lot of boring doubletrack to get there. Ther scenery is nothing special as the Great Salt Lake isn't that pretty (not to mention the smell). This ride's most redeeming feature is that it dries out before the Wasatch, so you can get some training in before the real trails open up.

    Avoid this place in the spring like your life depends on it. The biting gnats will make your life miserable. In the cooler months this place is gold. It is clear almost all year most years so it is excellent winter riding. Rain has no effect on the trail aside from making it amazing unless you are up high in the dark dirt where it becomes muddy. White Rocks Bay loop is excellent after a rain. It is sandy so there is no mud.

    As a disclaimer, we did not reach the most southern portion of the trail because it was fairly wet/snowy and I was out there some time ago. But I was informed we had hit most of the trail. Based on my ride I see no way this gets more than a 2 in my book even with apparently the best section being missed. The terrain is interesting and we were able to ride this when nothing on the Wasatch front was available. I am glad to have done it once and I wouldn't criticize anyone who wants to ride, but I have no plans to go again even if nothing else is open and I am in the SLC area.

    First off, this is an off-season trail, if you ride this in the summer you will hate it! Spring, Fall, and Winter are when this area shines. If you haven't ridden the figure 8 I just uploaded to the site then you are missing out and not giving a fair review. This has something for everyone: spectacular views, double track, single track, smooth, rocky technical, long climbs, fun decents. This is an awesome trail during the off-season, possibly the best in all of northern Utah. All my buddies who drive up from SLC-Draper area have all been blown away at how good this trail is in the off-season.

    Its been a while since I rode this, and I believe they charge you to get in here, but its a great winter ride as it stays dry for quite a while.

    This trail's chief benefit lies in its relatively low elevation and location west of the Wasatch. It lasts longer in the fall and opens up earlier in the spring, thus extending your riding season. Midsummer is too hot and there's no reason to go there anyway as anything in the Wasatch will be better. Theres too much dirt road before you got to the interesting singletrack and, of course, there's the ever-present smell of the lake.
