A fun loop at the base of the Utah Olympic Park!

The RTS trail at Utah's Olympic Park (ski jumping, bobsled, skeleton, and luge), is a fantastic beginner-to-intermediate trail. Since it's a short loop at only 2.6 miles and 366 feet of elevation gain, it's perfect for kids and beginners. Most of the sections are smooth dirt that winds through aspen groves and meadows. The lower trail has a few more rocks - just enough for beginners to test their skills!

The RTS Trailhead is on the right side of Olympic Parkway as you are driving up the road. From the trailhead, it seems like the natural way is to start pedaling up the trail to your left, but the preferred way to ride the RTS Trail loop is counter-clockwise to the right. You can also use the RTS trail to access other trails higher up on Utah Olympic Park or even Rob's Trail

In the spring the colors are a vibrant green as everything comes to life and in the fall the aspens turn to glowing yellow.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
