Trail 365 is a new for 2018 trail in the North Fork Park area of Weber County. The trail is a lot of fun and reminds me of the old BMX trails I rode in the 80’s. For instance, the trail features wide sweeping berms, a smooth packed surface and lots of fun rollers like a small roller coaster. This trail is a great place for beginners to learn some basic skills and get comfortable with their bike, but yet fun for the more advanced riders as well.
This is a beautiful trail with some sections that are nicely wooded and other sections that are open. In the heat of summer the open sections of Trail 365 will be in full sun and will get very hot. The trail also features a beautiful pond about one-third the way from the start which makes a great place to stop and get hydrated and maybe pop an energy bar or whatever you are packing.
In 2019 the Pipeline trail was extended to Trail 365 and connects “Mules” (Mule Ear and Mule Shoe) in North Fork Park. Pipeline can also be used as a return to the parking by the yurt, making this a fun loop trail.
According to a trail builder I talked to this trail was designed and developed by IMBA. That would explain the smoothness and the wider singletrack design. The trail is planned to be a 4-season trail that fat bikes will be able to ride in the winter months. In addition the trail is also planned to be a part of a fat bike race event later this year.
Once Trail 365 connects to the Mules you will have an amazing opportunity to get in some miles that won’t be crazy hard, require lots of technical skills nor will you need be in perfect race fitness.
Horses are not recommended on this trail. This is a popular trail for hikers going to the pond so please be careful and maintain control of your bike. Remember to yield to bikes and horses.
Prior to the trail being officially named there was a Strava segment that called Trail 365 “Bonnie & Clyde’s Outlaw trail”.

Not the best quality, but a video of the trail from the corrals to the trailhead. This should give you a good idea of the quality of the trail.
