2. Eagles Rise Trail

Eagles Rise is Located in Mantua, UT, and features a reservoir. Ride this 5-mile loop with your energetic doggo by your side (Remember, dogs must be kept on a leash). Be sure to get there early or late in the day because there is no shade, and the sun can get aggressive. There are many off-shoots on this trail to explore in addition to the main route. Find the jump-run to level up and get a little gnarly, but only if you're an expert rider.

3. North Fork Park Figure-Eight Ride

Be sure to watch out for hikers and horseback riders as you shred downhill turns. You will be picking bugs out of your smile all night. It will be worth it.

4. Cutler's Twist

This is a mulit-use trail, so watch out for hikers. Just let out a loud "Ohhhhyeeeah!" that should clear the path. Want to go in the winter? This trail is maintained for fatbikes all year round.

5. Bicentennial Loop

Bicentennial is a 50-minute drive south will take you to this chill 3.8 mile, 704 feet gain in elevation loop. It may seem short and sweet, but it will get your heart rate up. The trail sits under a canopy of trees, so you will have plenty of shade to cool you off. Also, look out for an adventure element on this trail: crossing a wide river. Depending on the river depth (spring can be the highest due to snowmelt), you may have to hoist your bike overhead. Either way, your socks will be squishy. It might be a nice treat to hot feet.
