Days Canyon Trail
10 Attachment(s)
I went for a ride after work yesterday up Days Canyon Trail (Hobble Creek UT). First time on this particular trail. It climbs up top pretty fast so its a good workout for the horses, and its about 15min from home to the trail. Once you get up on top it links into a network of trails that you could ride on for many, many miles.

The trail starts in the bottom of a canyon with lots of shade and you ride that way for a couple 3-4 miles before the sun can get to you so its a great afternoon ride. By the time you are hitting the top the sun is going down and you've climbed so much in elevation that it isn't hot anymore.

Some pictures...

Looks like a blast! I wish I had a place like that to ride!

It looks like it was a lovely ride! A very scenic area.

Wow! We are just starting our Arabian on trail riding and that narrow trail would be a work out to get down today. Looks like fun!

Yep, That looks like North Utah.
I love being able to ride on the shady side of the mountain on a warm day. And once you are up high enough in elevation, the temps cool off and you don't need the shade

Glad you got out. I've never Hobble Creek. I have gone down and rode at Black Hawk and dimple dell . But most of my riding is farther north

Looks like a great day for all.

I've never been up there. Looks pretty! I'll have to check it out this weekend. :)

You can't even find a hill in Florida to ride up! Spent 13mos there, didn't know a state could be that flat.
