Summary:
The trails are great for beginner to intermediate riders. Great for first timers with a lot of trails for the more thirllseeking type. The trails are well maintained, and you'll never run into the complaint, "There's too many people here." Great riding for all types of riders.

Recommended Route:
I like to park at the church, take middle, then spring. Down Rodeo, down river, up poppy down ruin, (I may do this 2 or 3 times actually, it's an easy-ish climb, for an awesome trail back down.) the up zag up a dog trail, and either wildcat or ziggy down. I reccommend wildcat to the more experienced riders. It's a steep trail (300 ft in 0.4 miles) and has some good sized jumps. I call it ruin's big brother. All in all, you can find a good route anywhere in the park, they are all great!

Besides ziggy and zag, the south eastern side is for the more experienced.

Rodeo down, and Ruin are the must hits

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bobsled, Tibble fork.

Summary:
Lambert Park is a singletrack playground. The whole area isn't all that big, but there's a lot of fun riding. If you like roller coaster singletrack, you'll want to check this place out. There's a lot of, fast, rolley trails with plenty of tight, twisty sections and features to keep things interesting. I would describe most of the riding as mildly to moderately technical. Just about anyone would enjoy riding Lambert Park. Put it on your "to ride" list.

Recommended Route:
Print out the map from UtahMountainBiking.com and go explore whatever looks interesting. Be sure to hit Rodeo Up/Down. Following a "recommended route" isn't too important because it's all worth riding. Warning: Some of the trails, Rodeo Down and Lambert Luge in particular, are directional. Watch out for trail makers. If you get bombed down on, it's probably your fault.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
-American Fork trail system
-Eagle Mountain Bike Park

Summary:
It has been awhile since anyone reviewed this trail but as a new rider to this trail system I though it would only be fair to give it a new review. This is an excellent trail system not far from major suburban areas. It has fast and well groomed trails and I wish more areas and cities would allow public use for mountain bikers similar to this. It is great for quick rides and if you rode it long enough (much more than an hour) you could get a good workout. However, either a lot has changed over the last few years or my fellow reviewers need to venture further from home. These trails are for beginners and lower-intermediate riders. The technical rating is about a 2 out of 5. There are many interresting sections but these are things that beginners would be challenged on. It is a blast for advanced riders because you already know how to get over all of it and you can do it really fast. I would love to take my wife out here to teach her how to handle some of the things she'll come across on an actual mountain bike trail, such as American Fork Canyon. I'm not bagging on anyone, I would just hope that you get out and expand your horizons a little more. I still love this trail and when I want to just have a fun day cruizing around and feeling good about myself, I'll see you and the other 20 people who go here on any given night.

Recommended Route:
Go anywhere, get lost and then try a new way, they are all fun.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Don't waste a long Saturday ride here, take the time and go up American Fork Canyon.

Summary:
Lambert Park is awesome for off season riding. It'll see a lot of extra use this year since it will take quite a while for the high altitude trails to open due to snow.

I mainly wanted to post another review since there have been at least 3 trails added in the last year.

Middle Spring - Connects the upper end of the Rodeo Loop to the upper portion of Spring.

High Bench - runs roughly parallel to River Trail but further West offering access to the lower end of the most fun addition of all...

Lambert Luge - This trail whoop-de-doos from Spring (also accessable from Ruin if you look closely it takes off to the right just above the first rock jump) across Middle and River ending into High Bench.

Everything is well marked with new signs.

The best news of all is that there are supposed to be even more additions planned!

Check it Out!!!

Recommended Route:
Ride it all.

Summary:
This trail is a Cross Country riders dream! I think that they need to rename it as the Lambert "Mountain Biking" Park. It is well-maintained, well-marked, and is not very well known. I love it because it mixes the technicality and intensity of Gooseberry Mesa in some parts, with the thrilling downhill of the Bobsled in other parts, and is all beautiful cross-country singletrack designed by other mountain bikers(Some of the winding singletrack through the tall Oakbrush reminds me of the awesome singletrack I cut my teeth on in the East where I grew up.) There is not much elevation change (~400ft) so there aren't any really long climbs (I guess if you climbed up the Corkscrew it would get your heart pumping). Also the climbs aren't technical.

This trail is so easy to access and provides a great place to ride after work. I drive 10 minutes and I'm there. I don't have to waste gas driving up to Tibble Fork, or to Ridge Trail 157. I get the fun and excitement of all the trails in Utah and Salt Lake Valley rolled into one. Each time I go I only see 1 or 2 other people. Lots of wildlife too (Deer galore in the evenings!!). The views are beautiful; you are right below the towering granite of Lone Peak and have beautiful views out over Utah Valley and Utah Lake. Sunsets from here are amazing!!

Recommended Route:
Start right near the rodeo arena. The trail drops right off the south side of the parking lot. Take a look at http://utahmountainbiking.com/trails/lambert.htm to see a good trail description and get a map (you'll definitely need a map). Then adventure around and explore. Follow the suggested route or just make up one of your own!! That is the awesome thing about these trails is that you're not just riding one single trail you are riding in a park full of trails!!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ridge Trail 157, Bobsled, Tibble Fork, Bonneville Shoreline
