Back to School Crest Ride

Let’s Celebrate!

School is back in session and WomenMTB will be celebrating

on one of the most popular trails in Utah.

Trail: The Crest via Mill D

Ride Leaders: Danita, Brandee

Trail Description: Big Rack Shuttle will take us to the top of Guardsman. The Crest trail via Mill D is 10 miles long with 758 vertical feet of climbing. The first 1.5 miles is a fun flow section through the trees to get you warmed up for puke hill. This is a steady strenuous climb followed by rolling hills to recover before meeting up with the Red Dragon. This section has 3 smaller climbs in the beautiful red dirt. You will be welcomed with an amazing view when you get to the top and then a short distance to the spine. From this point it is all downhill (YAY)!! I recommend wearing knee and elbow pads if you have them. This is a fast technical decent through the trees with roots and rocks (intermediate/expert). This is a no-drop group ride so nobody will be left behind. Come prepared with plenty of food, water, patch kit, extra tube, etc.


Meet: We will meet at the Mill D parking lot in Big Cottonwood Canyon at 9:45 am, shuttle leaves promptly at 10:00 am. Please be early so we can get everyone's bikes loaded on the shuttle. We should be back at the Mill D lot by 1:00 pm.
