Tr - Wasatch Crest super shuttle

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
25 miles long 1500 feet of climbing, 5000 feet of decending!! This is a killer shuttle run that run from the top of Guardmans pass all the ways down to SLC. The Wasatch Crest trail, the the Great Western Trail, to Big Water Trail, then down the road a bit to Pipeline was our route.

Map of the upper part of the ride here.


then pipeline


so 25 miles of mostly downhill, which is awesome if I ahve to say so myself.

yet another day when I feel as if I am the riched man in Babylon




ah the joys of Puke Hill some crazy twin rotor really quiet Helicopter as well, must be spying me.


My VO2 is so good its not Max its Awesome!! :wink:


Pinning it so I dont have to climb up the next hill


My bud tim grinning because he like the buff single track on the crest


Its a really difficult trail to ride because you keep looking at all the Wild Flowers and mountains as stuff


Lonnie clearing a little rock garden


Try looking at the lake while you ride the spine that adds a whole difficulty to it.


I <3 pinning singletrack


I also <3 rock gardens




Sometimes you have to stop and smell the bluebells



Lonnie cleaning his bike


About as rough as Great western trail gets


hope you guys enjoyed!!!

I did and I will call you when I head North, also lonnie got a good angle for that shoot but the spine looks way scarier if you go down a bit and a take a pictures.

and off topic if you ve been road biking I bet your in better shape than me, took the beater road bike around sandy/draper in the last hour and man is it fast 15 mile in a hour but my heart was maxed on the climbs.

I doubt that, but I do find the miles on the roadie help on the MTB. I just got the road bike last summer. I don't get nearly as dirty, but I am a Montain Biker at heart.

That looks like my kinda ride. I was down at Mt Snow today. It was dry by our standards, but I don't think it was the usual element for Altagirl. I'll be pullin' for her tomorrow though.

It is about 900 vert in about 1.5 miles. ~12% gradient

All the red rock pictures were taken on the spine. Spine is about 100m long rock garden on a little fin at the top of the ride. Has 3 distinct lines. It doesn't look impossible in any one part nor does it have serious exposure but putting it all together is pretty tough. Josh showed some xpert mtb skills in clearing that.
