Average Rating:    (3.73 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 11

This trail provides a good mixture of easy riding with more technical options available. It varies between buff singletrack, and bumpy rocky singletrack. There are also a couple jeep road sections. There are several lung busting climbs near the trailheads, but for the most part, the trail has easy-moderate climbs, although the trip up Dry Creek is more sustained. The link is to a slideshow of the trail.

Summary:
I'm a local living right below this beautiful system of trails. It's hella hot during the day everywhere in Utah so I recommend night rides. I can't drive and this trail is eight minute ride away from me so I try to go every night. The diffuculty of these trails varies, ALOT. So even though it says 4 below, it can even be a 2 or maybe a 5. Same with the technical rating.

Recommended Route:
I suggest not having a rought, just go where you want to, bring tools and lots of water, maybe a light(if you're scared of riding in the dark) and a buddy. Lots of rattle snakes so be prepared and just go where your heart desires

Other recommended trails in the same area:
This is a giant system of trails so once you get bored of it, just make up a new rought.

Summary:
Just wanted to post a quick report on the 'trail improvement' crews who are WRECKING this trail. After you've reached the top of the main Dry Creek climb and begin the actual contour-following Shoreline Trail to the North, the first rocky technical section has been REMOVED! One of the only fun, technical sections that requires a tiny bit of concentration is no longer there as of early October. WTF?!?!? Actually, on second thought, they're doing the right thing--why don't we just PAVE THE ENTIRE FREAKING TRAIL?!?! That way we might not fall down because a 3-year old could ride this thing.

Recommended Route:
up Dry Creek, down Bobsled.

3 stars cuz this trail and bobsled are still pretty fun...and easy to ride from my house :)

Summary:
The best part of this trail is the short but somewhat technical single-track descent into Emigration Canyon, which can only be done if are coming south from the University Hospital area. I rarely will make this route a destination itself, but if I'm on this segment of the Shoreline Trail, I always take this alternate descent. After you pass through the gate and ride past "This is the Place," the trail will fork at a gravel road. The easy route leads downhill to the parking lot, most of the heavy-breathers and walkers will take this quick way down, because turning left on the gravel road will take you a bit further uphill. Go that way. Stay on the gravel road and avoid any side trails that branch off uphill. Keep going until you are forced into a narrow gulch with washed out road leading downhill. You should quickly come to a water tank. Keep going. You will find yourself riding west towards the valley traversing a steep hillside a few hundred feet above the canyon road. Several springs keep a constant flow of water running across this section. The view is nice, the vegetation is thick, but watch the trail for washouts and mud or you will tumble a long time before you stop. This trail eventually joins the main segment and ends at the parking lot across from the zoo. It's just a more scenic, technical, and less-crowded way to get to the same place. Because it requires a little more uphill riding, this segment discourages the flabby. I've never encountered anyone coming up the trail since there are better ways up from the parking lot, but watch for hikers and the upwardly mobile as always.

Recommended Route:
Definitely start at the Dry Creek end and don't take the easy way down

Summary:
The Bonneville Shoreline Trail construction crew did a great job on the newest segment of this trail. The ride begins at a trailhead on the North side of the mouth of City Creek Canyon. The singletrack trail climbs steeply for the first mile or so, and winds through half a dozen or so steep switchbacks up the south-facing canyon wall. Views up into the upper canyon are spectacular. The trail levels or climbs slightly as it traverses the hillside to the north, providing aerial veiws down into the exclusive North Cove housing development. About 2 miles into the ride, the trail climbs a brief and moderately technical uphill section and finally intersects the antennas road high above the state capital. Total distance is about 2 1/2 miles. This trail is comprised of some great new singltrack and provides spectacular views of City Creek Canyon, downtown Salt Lake, the Capital, and points north.

Recommended Route:
Newest section of trail. Begin at mouth of City Creek Canyon, North side. Ride out to antennas road or beyond.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bonneville Shoreling Trail segments to the South of City Creek Canyon, The Bobsled, Mueller Park

Summary:
The traverse from the Upper Bobsled/City Creek saddle over to Dry Creek has a little screamer of a decent about half way. Let go of the brakes here.
If you want, take a breather at the top of the decent into Dry Creek, so you can ride the rest of the trail without stopping. From the bottom of Dry Creek, you can head over and hit Lower Bobsled.

Recommended Route:
Ride up terrace hills, traverse up and over to Dry Creek. Ride DOWN Dry Creek. Every one is ruining an excellent decent by getting in the way riding up it.
Try riding down it for once and see what I am talking about.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Yeah, if I tell you, I'll have to slow down for your dog there too.
