Thunder Mountain // Red Canyon

The views while riding Thunder Mountain are unreal. Since I couldn’t make my boyfriend stop every two seconds, I decided to wear my GoPro chest mount for the first time. I put together this short edit after:

Thunder Mountain is in Red Canyon, which is near Bryce and in Panguitch, Utah. We parked at the lower trailhead and rode our bikes 5 miles up a paved bike path (Red Canyon Trail) and onto Coyote Hollow Road, which is a dirt road, all the way to the Thunder Mountain Trailhead. This way you can ride the trail, mostly downhill, all the way back to the car at the lower trailhead. Our loop totaled about 16 miles, however 5 of those were on the paved trail. Check out the loop on Strava that we did.

This trail is fast and fun. The singletrack is smooth, the views are great and there are some fun (and loose) switchbacks.
