Mountain Biking Bells Canyon

***   Add a review
#231 of 689 mountain bike trails in Utah

Bells Canyon does not see much Mountain Bike traffic, and for good reason! It starts out very steep and with a loose gravel trail base, it makes for a tough climb on a bike. There are steps that are all but impossible to ride up (or down). After reaching the very scenic Lower Bells Canyon Reservoir the trail is much better! It turns to a fun single track through the trees. After crossing the stream above the Reservoir the trail becomes snarled with large granite boulders and is tough for even a hiker to negotiate.

    I rate it a 2 because it's not really a mountain biking trail, but as for hiking, it's fantastic! Even if you somehow think you can enjoy the climb, you will run into a lot of people because it's such a popular area. There's just so much other great mtn. biking nearby that I wouldn't do it at Bells, imho.

    This would make a short biking trail, once you climbed the steps with your bike, up to and a little past the lower reservoir.

    My recommendation is to leave the bike at home, strap on some trail shoes, and walk to the UPPER reservoir and the falls.

    This is a gorgeous trail in all seasons (even snowshoeing in the winter)
