Ridge 157

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

Ridge 157 begins at The Alpine Loop Summit and travels mostly north to Pole Line Pass (12+ miles and several big climbs away). It actually continues beyond this point, but is generally called The Great Western Trail from here on over to Little Cottonwood Canyon. The trail is a mix of smooth and technical climbs and descents. It serves as a connector for several other trails, or is a great ride unto itself.

The Ridge 157 is a great ride unto itself. It additionally serves to link 25-30 miles of other out standing trails.

There is a mix of tough and easy, uphill and down, all interspersed with amazing views in all directions.

If you live in Utah Valley, you must ride this trail and all the others it connects!
