Mountain Biking Southern Skyline Trail - Pineview Reservoir

*****   Add a review
#48 of 691 mountain bike trails in Utah
#1064 in the world

The trail starts with a gradual, smooth climb for the first half mile. For the next mile or so, the trail is a strenuous and technical climb. Once you reach the top of the mountain, follow the ridge south for another 1 1/2 miles. The views of Ogden and Huntsville (Pineview Resevoir) are very camera worthy. The trail forks here, stay right to continue to Lewis Peak (another 3.3 miles) or take the left to Pineview Resevoir (7.5 miles). The downhill to Pineview Resevoir is very rewarding. Narrow but smooth singletrack with gorgeous views of the mountains and Ogden Valley. The trail comes out at the "Pineview Trailhead" just across from the Southwest boat ramp at the resevoir (recommend a shuttle vehicle here).

    Long, relentless climb, but all on a manageable grade. This is a superb aerobic workout. I didn't find the trail to be technical other than a couple tight switchbacks. Continue on to the Northern Skyline and up Ben Lomond for a mega epic that will force a dismount or two.

    Strenuous climb to get to the top. The view is incredible! The 7.5 mile downhill to the resevoir is rewarding!
