I got out again early for a mountain bike to beat the heat and crowds. I had a few encounters, but mainly with groundhogs, construction trucks, and very tall grass. The wildflowers are starting to pop and the single track is still in great shape. As I returned to the parking lot, it was almost at capacity and the large groups of riders were headed out. Just like last Saturday, the early wake-up was worth it.
Vail Resorts is very active at Park City Mountain and every intersection between single track and access road has a warning sign. For years, these roads have been rarely used so it's a mental shift to slow down and look both ways as you traverse the mountain. It will definitely be an interesting ski season come November.
