Mountain Biking Little Cottonwood Pipeline

***   Add a review
#338 of 691 mountain bike trails in Utah
#9732 in the world

This is a great single track ride along side the beautiful Cottonwood Creek. If it where not for 2 or 3 rough, steep, rocky sections this would be a relatively easy ride. You will be tempted to try out your "Down Hilling" skills on the ride. But, please be careful and ride responsibly, this trail receives a lot of foot traffic (always yield the right-of-way). And take care on the down hill, there are a lot of "little" jumps where the unaware might catch to much air and meet the ground before your bike!

    This was my go-to-after-work quickie when I lived in the SLC. OUT-and-back. Be real careful of oncoming traffic as you can get up to speed and there are some blind corners. There's a nice rock garden towards the top that was always a challenge. Take a break at top and dip your feet in the river. Nice little trail, not the craziest fun I've had on a bike, but decent for a close-to-town ride.

    Great scenery. The trail itself is just kind of average. No real obstacles or anything unique. I mostly use this trail to access climbing routes, tbh, because there are a lot of better rides in the 'nearish' vicinity (such as corner canyon).

    I was looking forward to the ride, but there was still too much snow on 4/19/10 so I turned around after about 1 1/2 miles.

    This was a great ride and just before the storm it was almost free of snow.
