The Staff at Basin Recreation loves to see you get outside! We are proud to manage over 170 miles of trails that was given the IMBA Gold Level Ride Center Award in 2012. The Trails Department maintains 29 miles of paved trails, 12 miles of soft surface trails, 125 miles of natural surface trails, and the Trailside Bike Park. The local trails inventory includes the popular Mid-Mountain Trail and Flying Dog Trail, along with other local favorites such as The Road to Arcylon and Pinecone Ridge Trail. Over 18 miles of multi-use winter trails are groomed and most the backcountry trails are popular snowshoeing and fat tire biking routes. The system of trails in the Snyderville Basin is undergoing continued expansion. With nearly 2,000 acres in recreational open space, we are excited about new trail opportunities.
This system of trails is made possible by working collaboratively with developers, private property owners, other governmental entities, and non-profit trail advocacy organizations. Residents of the Snyderville Basin have supported trail development by approving over $10 million earmarked for trail system improvements through voter authorized bonds since 2002.
Please review the Fall Trail Accessibility Map to see which Basin Recreation trails will close first each fall due to mud and snow. Respect any trail closures and understand that, just because the trail appears dry doesn’t mean that it will remain dry further down the trail. We always place signs at the closest junction for your convenience.
Additionally, please view this video explaining how our shared transportation trail wayfinding system works.
