The Racetrack

The Racetrack

Above Timpanogos Park there is a great set of squiggly trails (obviously built by mountain bikers) that some call the racetrack. If you loop a specific route, it is exactly 2 miles around. Super fun. I have done it a few times now in the snow, mud, and dirt.

Go put it on your phone or watch and try to follow it! Great route.

The views ain’t shabby

Even after a few times, I have to follow it on my watch or I get lost. Its just a maze.

The Wedge, WEST!

The Wedge, WEST!

Work took me down to Emery County for a couple days of digging in the archives. On my way out of Castledale on the last day, I realize I was only a few miles from the Wedge. I figured it was my moral duty to go for a quick run before driving home. For something new, I started at the Wedge Overlook and ran WEST along the dirt road, and then a bit along the rim, then to the overlook that is directly across (south) from Virgin Spring Canyon. It was overcast and the canyon colors were a bit washed out, but still gorgeous.

 

Looking north, across the San Rafael River, and up Virgin Spring Canyon towards the Sid’s Mountain mesa area.
