Mountain Biking Flying Dog

****   Add a review
#66 of 692 mountain bike trails in Utah
#1479 in the world

Start at Glenwild and go up Stealth. After turning onto Flying Dog, you'll steadily climb. But soon the top will come, and the descent will begin. After descending the lower switchbacks of Flying Dog, you'll be able to continue on towards Bob's Basin if you want to.

    First time here and I was best from lots of riding. Followed my buddy up the climb and had a great view of the setting sun. Ripped down with lights blazing. Very dusty

    Great trail that is part of a great trail system around Park City. Tons of fun to go down with good flow and the occasional technical feature.

    Pretty mellow climbing from Spring Creek TH. Upper Flying Dog DH is a lot of fun, fast and tight singletrack in the trees. The remainder is pretty fun as well. Nothing technical throughout, just smooth singletrack. Fast way to crank out 17 miles.

    We rode it starting from Jeremy Ranch TH, going up 24-7 trail. This shortened the ride and got the "fun" ratio up. 24-7 has a few hundred yards of steeper starting out, but then mellows. We rode Flying Dog loop CCW, and had a blast. Quite smooth yet, nice climb, and very fun downhill.
    This is really one of the "must rides" in Park City. Moderate climbing (if you start in Jeremy Ranch) and great loop.

    Pretty popular trail. The lower portion (24/7) tends to get busy with hikers and runners. That being said, use commin sens

    Excellent descent (and the climb isn't too bad either). Transitions from scrub oak to Aspen glades and back again. Trail is named "Flying Dog" because a GPS trace of the trail looks like a jumping dogs with its ears being blown by the wind. :)

    Awesome and pretty much endless possibilities off the trail for other loops variations. Intermediate.

    Beautiful fun trail. A good mix of climbing and descent. Highly recommend. I don't love the route you have to take to get to this trail, but it is worth it.

    Include the Bob's Basin DH trails in the loop for added fun and making the ride 20+ miles. Middle chainring on almost all the climbs makes this ride quite enjoyable. Only drawback to the ride is how close it is to civilization.

    Great loop apprx. 17 miles. I would ride in the counter clockwise direction. Pretty good uphill with a great downhill.
