UT - Sovereign Singletrack - Mountain Bike Trail Review with Map and Pictures
|Directions - 191 East to Dalton Wells Road,
alternate parking would be willow springs road.
Update 2012: - Checked out the latest section of trail that ends near the parking area on willow springs road. It basically parallels the old singletrack (shown blue on map and labeled NEW). For a loop we rode up the old singletrack that has lots of rock, then about 75% there took a left and climbed the new to the top. A dis-proportionate figure 8 loop. Then descended down the new trail (about 10 miles or so for the loop). New trail was really good, but did have about 3-4 hike a bikes, some sand, some steep hills. Great views, great lines, good times. This trail really opens up the possibilities for bigger loops for this area, I would say if you combine everything, then its a FULL day of riding..
Update 2007: - Just a quick note about the sovereign trails, on the rare occurrence of rain, the love tunnel becomes very muddy and should be avoided for a couple days. The rest of the trail network was still great one day after rain!! All kinds of new lines in the expanded play area below the large slickrock, lots of lines marked with Cairns.
Description - I
heard bad things about the sand at sovereign so did some homowork.. The
skinny is skip the atv trails, if you wish to do a loop, use the ROAD!! We
rode 2 different loops, 1 - upper deck single track loop 2 - classic
soveriegn loop, clockwise using road..
Upper decker (Red Loop on map) was a really cool loop but a bit
hard to give a true rating since the wind was blowing 50 knots for us, we
actually had to pedal downhill.. In any case, the trails were cool, the
trail up to the deck was very steep but rideable, expect a few carries from
a typical group ride. Once at the top the trail focks, I mean Forks. I
suggest doing the loop counter clockwise, henceforthwith take a right up the
hill then another right on doubletrack.. Climb on the double, descend on
single, really cool off camber, mildly tech in spots.. Trail winds up and
down and around, pretty nice stuff.. Once you complete the loop and head
back, you may want to at LEAST add the first section of the classic
sovereign wich includes the tunnel of love and birthing rock.. If you like,
just follow it past slickrock to dalton wells and take the road back to your
car, dats what we did. Had intentions of riding it all but totally out of
Loops - Do the upper decker, or Classic, or BOTH for an epic ride
||Total Miles: 20+
