For the past 4 years, Mountain Trails has been working with the SkyRidge Mountain Community, on developing a trails master plan for the new development. That has resulted in nearly 8 miles of new hiking and biking trails along the northeast corner of the Jordanelle Reservoir. Most recently, Mountain Trails collaborated with Singletrack Trails on the construction of the Big Dipper, a 2.5 mile-long, directional downhill and bike-only trail from the top of SkyRidge Peak, down to the start of the Milky Way trail.
On October 5th, SkyRidge held their trails grand opening, and we officially christened the new trail with a group ride of nearly 20 mountain bikers, including our own staff. With its unique volcanic rock formations, exposure and unrestricted views, this trail is unlike anything else you’ll ride in Park City.
