Trail Description
About this trail
The first couple miles of this ride are rather uninteresting. Although the old dort road is closed to bikes, it still feels like a road. Fortunately, it\'s nicely wooded. The singletrack then provides some challenge, good variety, and a great workout if you push it. It also makes for a fun, fast downhill on the return trip.

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

Review: The actual wheeler creek trail/road is just so-so, the spectacular trails are at the top (end) of wheeler creek. I prefer to drive to that trailhead and begin my rides from there rather than climb wheeler. From the top of wheeler you have access to an amazing trail network that goes up into SnowBasin Ski Resort which are the best trails in the Ogden area.

Similar Trail: The Snowbasin trails above wheeler are 1000x better, but wheeler is one option to access those trails.

Review: I really enjoy this trail - the first 1.9 miles through Wheeler Creek Trail are well shaded and easy riding, then when you hit the Art Nord Trailhead and head onto the Maples Trail you get a good variety with some more technical challenges and climbing, a few bridges, and some great views. This also offers a great ride you can tag onto the end to go up to Coldwater Overlook and get an absolutely breathtaking view.
