Summary:
Details of 20+ mile loop includes portions of Sweeny's, John's, Steps, Keystone, Apex, PCMR Link, John's 99, Gravedigger.

Recommended Route:
This is a loop that will introduce you to most of the trails in the Park City area south of The Spiro Trail, north of the Deer Valley trails and west of the trails in the county, Solamere, etc. It is almost all single track with about 1 mile on paved roads to and from the trail. There’s also about a mile on difficult dirt roads. That only leaves about 18 miles of some of the best single track around! The basic route, for those familiar, is: Sweenie’s to John’s to The Steps (past the yurt) to Home Run to Keystone Loop to Apex, back to the yurt down to the base of Pioneer lift to pick up PCMR/Link trail to John’s 99 back to John’s to 420 to Gravedigger to something else and back to the car....about 20.5 miles, 2.5 hours+. The details for those unfamiliar: Park in PCMR parking lot across from bus turn around and drop off parking. Ride up (south) the road in front of PCMR for .5 mile and go right onto trail head. Go around gate, up road, under town liftstay on main road/trail. At 1.6 mile go right (north) onto North Sweeny Switchbacks. This is milepost 6.3 on the Town Loop. At 2.0 miles stay right and go up trail/road to base of very steep section. This is at 2.1 mile, turn left onto single track. Soon, you will come to a cross trail...stay straight, another 50 feet or so and you will come to another group of trails. Go straight (very slightly right) over small hump. You are now on John’s trail. At 2.7 miles stay right. At 4.2 miles, you will come onto an open area, go left, downhill toward the old gondola midstation. You will end up here again, later. Go up the road that curves up and around the unused gondola station...at 4.6 miles, you will pass the 8000 foot trail ( IF you go right onto this trail, you’ll get to Spiro in about 4 miles and The Canyons in another 15 miles) continue past it to a right turn at 4.9 miles onto The Steps. Soon you will get to a yurt on the right. (You’ll be here again later, also). Continue up the steep(!) road past the yurt and at about 6.2 miles you will come to The Keystone Loops. Go right (north) and cross several of the Thanes Lift trails. This section is fairly flat, maybe a bit downhill, overall. At 7.5 miles stay right...at 7.8 miles you will come onto a dirt road, go left and up the road (IF you go right, you can get to The Shadow Lake Loop and up to the ridge via MoFo, or to the top of the Jupiter Lift). Continue up the road until you get to a single track (Apex...it’s marked) and go left and down. At 9.6 miles, you’ll cross Keystone...and soon you will come onto a dirt road...go south on this and at 10.3 miles you’re back at the yurt. You came up here from the left. Now you go straight down the road following signs to the base of the Pioneer lift. At the base of the lift (11.5 miles) you can pick up the PCMR/Link trail. Go straight past the first left (downhill) and at the next fork stay left. At 12.2 miles you’ll turn hard left back to the north (if you go south/right, you’ll get over to the Deer Valley trails) and at 13.2 miles you’ll cross a dirt road. Continue...you’ll end up at the base of the Bonanza Lift near that old gondola midstation. Climb back up (to the right of the get off point for the Town Lift) to where you got off John’s and follow it back down hill until at about 15.9 miles you turn right onto 420. 420 continues downhill...the last 100 feet are VERY technical...cross the road to another singletrack. This is Gravedigger (I think). Follow this trail...at one point you will climb a wide section that has lots of loose rock...after that it comes to the most technical section of climb so far and the most demanding aerobically. At the top of this climb, the trail forks. Follow the main fork to the left. This will dump you off near a big water tank at 17.7 miles...(you’re in the area of Tour De Suds) go uphill past it, up the road past a trail that drops off to the left to a point where the road takes a big right bend. On the left side is a yellow, concrete filled pipe sticking up. Turn left onto this single track...take your first left, at the next T, go right and then take your next hard left (at about 18.4 miles) and continue down until you get on the road. Go down the road. Either continue down to main street and The Wasatch Brew Pub (you’ve earned it!) Or, a little way down the road, go left up onto a climbing single track. Once on this, you can get back to The Sweeny North trail (you’ll have to go on about haf a mile of back roads) and end up on the road to the parking lot. Enjoy!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Spiro, Round Valley, Solamere, Skid Row, blah, blah

Summary:
Hello Kids! I hope you all are being good this year and you better be and I'll be watching. Santa is having a lot of fun during the off season on his summer sled. It has four wheels and shocks, it is a lot of fun. My reindeer wants to stay in shape for the winter. We went on Thayne Road and went down on Spiro Trail, we went on the Tour de Suds too, boy those trails were a lot of fun until Blixon fell and got bruised on the side, he's O.K. now. Then we flew off and Vixon and Rudolf complained because they wanted to do more.

Recommended Route:
Spiro Trail and Tour de Suds. Thayne Road.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Whistler, Canada. Switzerland,Norway, Phillipines, China, Mount Snow, California. Durango, Colorado. Australia and Kenya. All the trails are fun!
