Trail Description
About this trail
Yellow Fork is a great twisting singletrack through the oak trees. It is relatively low in technical difficulty and does not climb at to steep of a grade. It would make an excellent introductory ride on singletrack trails! It does get a bit narrow up at the top, which helps you learn to hold a line! About 1.5 miles into the ride you will make a very sharp right-hand hairpin turn around a fallen tree. The trail turns to a double track here. Stay right on the double track for .4 of a mile. You will see the singletrack continuing off to your right. Follow the narrow singletrack up the the scrub oak until you hit the doubletrack again. Look to your left, about 20 yards down the doubletrack, and you will see the singletrack again. From here to the top you will climb rather steep, narrow sections through the aspens! The trail turns north and breaks out into the open for a great view of the Wasatch Front and the Kennecott Copper Mine. From here on, we haven't had the time to explore...your on your own!!

Review: As mentioned in other reviews, there are a LOT of horses on this trail and seems to be a constant battle between the riders and bikers. Many trees have been cut down and laid over the trail by horse enthusiasts to slow down the downhill traffic. If you are going to ride this trail plan on hitting it early to miss the horse traffic. I also don't climb the single track. The double track goes up to a picnic area where I jump on to the single track to keep going up. Much less traffic past this point. It's a good option on the west side especially while Rush trail is out of commision.

Review: What makes this trail unique is it's location in the west mountains. There's reasonable horseback usage through here, but never crowded. I rarely see other bikers here. Nice option especially if you live on the west side and don't have time to travel to wasatch front rides.

Review: First ride of this trail went really well. I enjoyed to coverage and lack of traffic on the trails. Still there are quite a few horseback riders and therefore a fair amount of poop to avoid. I stuck to the single track trails mostly but there are lots of options and I will most likely play around and explore this area a lot as it is so close to my place. Avoid going too far up the side of the mountain on the way back to the trailhead if you are a newbie like me, it gets a bit too technical. I uploaded some photos and a video with comments on where I went and shouldn't have gone. Enjoy

Review: This is a fun area and a nice mix-up from the more popular eastern side of the valley, i.e. the wasatch mountains. The oak trees are a nice addition, and the trail isn't too bad. Haven't been there much, only a couple times, but each time I didn't come across other riders. Some horses though once. I feel like its more of a novelty area to check out, however, than a regular riding spot (unless you live nearby).

Review: I’ve ridden this trail twice now and admit to being a bit bipolar about it. The climb isn’t too bad and there are many options, but there is heavy horse traffic and I came across large section of trail chewed up and un-rideable. The views at the top are cool and I’m sure I’ll be back soon as it is close to work. I think that I just need to find the right trails that keep me from walking my bike through the woods.
