Wasatch Front Canyon Climbs
I like to ride up the local canyons on my mountain bike
and eventually got interested in seeing how the various canyons compare.
So, I got out the old topo maps, a pencil, a ruler, and a six-pack of beer
and started measuring distance vs. elevation alongs the roads.
The original version wound up in data files for
since that is what I knew.
Since then I have started using
(so I can put arrows and labels in my graphs!)
This year I have also started riding off-road much more
so there is now a page for real
mountain bike rides!
There are a number of
sources of error
in the current data.
There are also a couple of
I might explore.
Mt. Dell (Big Mountain)
Big Cottonwood (to Brighton)
Big Cottonwood (to Guardsman Pass)
Provo Canyon (North Fork)
