The International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) has recently named Park City the world’s first (and so far only) Gold-Level Ride Center! That’s how good this place is for mountain biking – for every level of rider.
Why? Partly because the bike centric atmosphere in the summer rivals the ski centric nature of the town in the winter. Partly because Park City is an internationally recognized resort town with great lodging and restaurants, and partly because of the great bike shops like Jans and White Pine. Mostly, however, this is a Gold-Level Ride Center because of the 400+ miles of pristine single-track that is the envy of a whole world’s worth of mountain bikers.
At Jans, and at our proprietary guide service, White Pine Touring, mountain biking is more than just what we do. It’s a huge part of who we are. We’ve been involved in the mountain biking scene here literally since the beginning, and we’ve helped build miles and miles of the single track in Park City, so we know it better than anyone else. From rolling bike paths with incredible views, to high speed single track across the sides of mountains, the White Pine Touring guides can show you all the best trails.
Your time is valuable, and you want to get the most out of your time on the trails! Let our experienced guides show you the way so all you have to worry about is having fun!

GREEN CIRCLES - We don’t expect any heart stoppage on these trails, and they are suitable for most kids to ride. In fact, these trails have been designed with families, seniors, and beginner riders in mind.
BLUE SQUARES - If you are coming from sea level, and you are past your twenties and/or you don’t get much exercise, these rides will get you huffing and puffing a little, or maybe a lot. While there is some challenge involved, any crash should be patchable with a Band-Aid.
DOUBLE BLUE SQUARES - Strength is the major determinant in the jump from one square to two. You will have to clear some obstacles that require the front tire to get airborne briefly and on several of the rides, you’ll be in the saddle for a long time.
BLACK DIAMONDS - Riders in this category should know who they are, but the jump from two squares to one diamond means more grunt factor and more technical difficulty, plus generally more time in the saddle.
DOUBLE BLACK DIAMONDS - Park City doesn’t have that much riding that is truly intimidating, but there is a little on these rides. Advanced riders will be able to handle most of these trails without walking or carrying their bikes too much, but it will take them longer than Expert riders.
