    This is more of an addition to Sardine Loop for me. It's a short detour that takes you to a really nice view of the Ogden Valley. It's a nice ride in the Summer with a lot of shade and altitude to beat some of the heat.

    The trail description and reviews have left me confused about this trail... My understanding is that it's the short, half mile long detour off the Sardine Peak trail that takes you to an overlook. In that case the views are spectacular so the detour is well worth the effort.

    Reviewing Sardine Peak Loop:

    The Sardine Peak Loop is a wonderful back-country, scenic ride on a two-way shared trail. According to Strava my total altitude gain was 1600 feet but it seemed less - the gradient is perfectly controlled except for a few short sections. This trail won't stretch your chain!! The ride down is great. Now here's the magic - the ride down seemed longer than the ride up! When that happens you know you've ridden a great trail.

    By the way, the trailhead is known to Google Maps. Its called Maples Trailhead.

    One of my favorites to get up to Snowbasin trails. Steady climb. Great on Fatbike after trail packed by snow shoers.

    Highly enjoyable with a short climb up (~3.5 mi) and a long fast downhill (~5 miles). Nearly fully shaded, spectacular views.

    I rode up Ogden Overlook, then descended back to the Snowbasin parking lot via Sardine Peak.

    Great resort with great amenities and views. Gondola service to the top. Trails for most levels. Singletrack trails are pretty loose and rocky with a few large boulders and roots to clear.

    Reviewing Green Pond Loop:

    The "get directions" function of this app actually starts you off at the Ard and Nord Dr trail head. Also the trail head maps are oriented S/SE up. Can be confusing if you have never been on this trail system.

    First single track I've done in Utah. Fairly good climb to the top of the Ogden outlook. Took about 45 minutes up and 10 minutes down. A few small patches of snow, but otherwise dry. View at the top was spectacular.

    We did the lifts this last summer. It was a good time. Long descents! Continuous, uninterrupted trail. Rugged back country feel. No bike park/freeride stuff, but still loaded with natural technical features. Maps were great, never got lost.

    Reviewing Sardine Peak Loop:

    We rode this trail tonight, starting at the upper Snow Basin parking lot. We rode it clockwise, please, everyone, ride it clockwise. After the downhill, we turned down Middle Fork and up to Green Pond parking lot, rode the lower half of Green Pond trail back to the Snow Basin lodge. Turned an 8 mile ride into a 14 mile ride with 2 great climbs and downhill sections. Took us 2 and half hours and was a blast.

    We ride the trail system at Snow Basin a lot and still haven't ridden all of the combinations. Lots of variety. You can tailor your rise to whatever you're in the mood for or have time for.
