Trail Description
About this trail
Pinecone Ridge is one of the newest trails in Park City, built in 2012. Many people use it to climb from the town of Park City up to the renowned Wasatch Crest Trail, as it is now the mildest singletrack climb to the tops of the mountains. However, this is also a fantastic descent, that feels like a flowy pumptrack all the way down the mountain side! Berms, rollers, jumps, small doubles, and flow for miles keeps things entertaining, fast, and way fun! If you're descending, just be sure to keep an eye out for riders coming up.

Review: Pinecone (elsewhere it's just "Pincecone" (one word) without the "Ridge") is a two way, shared, back-country trail that is nearly always ridden upwards.

It's a very good example of what climbing singletrack should be like - the gradient is mostly steady and even. It is 4 miles long and gains over 1500 feet. It continues the climb to the Wasatch Crest where Armstrong Trail leaves off. They are both excellent climbing singletrack and together they gain close to 3000 feet over 8 miles from the base of Park City Mountain Resort. They form the climbing part of the Park City IMBA Epic loop...

Pinecone (and Armstrong) are very popular trails with both bikers and hikers.

Review: Such a fun descent, even in the snow as we did it. Berms, rollers, jumps, and flow for miles--while I'm sure it's a great climb, there's no way it can be better on the way up than it is on the way down!!
