Bike the Burn Canyon Trails
Just a few miles Northwest of Norwood, the Burn Canyon Trail System features four different loops and nearly nine miles of easy to moderate, fun, flowing, and family-friendly singletrack. The smooth, tacky trails bounce and dart through forests of juniper, pinion, and sagebrush. The Burn Canyon Trail System is split into two different sections of loops, connected by a spur. Each loop in the system is between 1 and 2.5 miles long—perfect for young or beginner mountain bikers.
Visit the West End Trail Alliance for more information. Find printed West End Trail Maps and bike gear and services at High Country Bicycles in Norwood.
After a morning riding the Burn Canyon Trails, visit The Divid Restaurant for a lunch break.
