We rode this trail today from Coalville to Park City and back. It's a nice ride and the noise from i80 was not as bad as we expected.
This is a great ride with beautiful scenery but…the last leg after going through Coalville is a carpet of “goat head puncture weeds” so you had better have very puncture resistant tires on your bike. This trail really needs some love from whoever is charged with caring for it. I have never seen so many puncture weeds on one trail. My friend had to replace both inter tubes after our ride.
We rode from Park City to Coalville. The weather was perfect, sunny but cool. The scenery was better than usual as the area has had some precipitation recently. The trail was in great shape until we got two miles from Coalville where it got a little rough. Having said that, we were going 14 to 15 mph so it wasn't that rough. This trail had everything today, green vegetation, red rock, lush farmland, cattle, deer, sheep and lots of rock chucks. Overall it was a great ride and I would give the trail five stars if the last two miles were as smooth as the first 19.
We started in Park City and rode down to Echo Reservoir. But couldn’t make the round trip as we got flat tires from all of the goat heads ¿¿. We weren’t alone in our misfortune, we came across 6 others who had flats as well.
If you start from Park City the entire trail is basically downhill. We really enjoyed the views the whole way, even along I-80. Lots of cute little tidbits of info along the way.
Echo State Park was by far the best part, though road got a bit bumpy over there. from Park City there are a few gates to get through. Mostly sun exposure, and watch out for gopher holes the first 7 miles
The first 14 miles traveling from Park City was all downhill and fast. Once we got to mile 17 until near the end the trail is in very poor condition. The horses and cows have torn the trail up and it was extremely hard to ride. It took us 4 hours in no shade to complete the trip. You must be strong and have a very good mountain bike to be happy with this section of the trail. Also all the dead deer on the side of the road were stinky and rotting (I counted at least 20), The trail follows I-80 most of the way and it is okay, but a little distracting. Now get out and ride !
Slow upward grade from Coalville/Echo area to Park City., but not too steep. Since this is a Utah State park it would be great if more maintenance was done along the trail: cut back the vegetation overgrowth for example.
Overall, this is a great ride.
This trail is not asphalt and concrete it is mostly gravel with some asphalt. It is harder to do gravel and you need a different bike. So I think the description that you see needs to be fixed.
I rode this trail from the Wanship parking lot to Main Street Park City and back--I avoided starting at Echo based on some of the reviews I read on this site about the soft state of the trail by the reservoir. Based on my trip, I'd say at least 75% of the trail was dirt and a bit bumpy, and the last 25% nearest Park City is paved. If you are wanting a paved route I believe you'd need to start where the trail crosses 248, or if you just want only a little bit of dirt trail you could start at the Promentory/Star Pointe trailhead. I rode a hybrid bike, and although I felt I did fine there were definitely a couple patches where the trail was pretty bumpy or gravely or had gopher holes. That said I wasn't anticipating a super groomed trail so it was pretty much what I expected. Scenery is fantastic... some farm land and river life on the front end (beavers, deer, lots of birds), open West landscape in the middle, and Park City on the end. If you are going to do a to-and-back I'd definitely recommend doing it the way I did going uphill for the first leg and downhill on the second leg (especially if it's hot).
Although the trail goes through some really beautiful countryside, it is extremely rough to ride, runs almost continuously along Interstate 80, and has very little shade. We rode only about 10 miles, from Coalville towards Park City, then had to turn around because the bumpiness was wearing us out! We ride hybrid bikes, with front suspension, but it was still very, very jarring.
This is one of my favorite gravel rides. The downhill to Echo is fun, the return is a grind. Well worth the trip!
