South Summit Trails Foundation has succeeded far beyond expectations in developing an outstanding eastern Summit County trail experience. Thanks to a partnership with the Kamas District Office of the U.S. Forest Service, SSTF has built one of the first mountain biking trail systems upon Forest Service land in the country!
The Slate Creek MTB trail is located adjacent to the Mirror Lake Highway, just 6 miles east of Kamas in the Uinta mountains. This is a family-friendly mountain biking destination with a variety of terrain for varying skills. Utah Mountain Biking says of the trail, “This is the trail that riders have been begging for – a bike-specific ride in the Uintah Mountains along the Mirror Lake Highway. It’s more than worth doing. It’s a great ride!”
To further meet growing non-motorized recreational demands in eastern Summit County, SSTF is excited to announce an expansion plan that will add 10 additional miles of trail in the Slate Creek area. This will include a 5-mile upper elevation loop as well as beginner and intermediate, bike only, “flow” lines. With Forest Service guidance, SSTF intends to greatly enhance area non-motorized trail offerings.
As you can imagine, these and other non-motorized trail projects require significant funding and volunteer help. While SSTF has successfully raised a majority of the funding for this and other projects, this is a challenging time of rising costs. Now, more than ever, SSTF needs your support.
