Another top notch hitter. This happens to be a route that is 1/3rd unpaved road, so get your knobbies on. You will start out by doing the traditional Brighton Run up Big Cottonwood Canyon, however once you get to the top you will take a hard left up Guardsman Pass Rd. This serves as snowmobile access for the slednecks in the winter, in the summer its a forest access road. The coolest portion of this is the dirt road, it will take you from the Big Cottonwood side and then drop you down to the Park City side. You actually end up riding down the ski runs, literally, of the Deer Valley resort. Hell, you might even see an RV on fire down Parleys canyon, I did.
This route you can only run probably four months out of the year unless you have super balls or an enduro with knobbies and heated grips.
