    Riding in the Shire where the Hobbit lives

    I found this cool single track trail on a ride I was on yesterday. It reminded me of the Hobbit movies.
    I'll see if the video link works. Here are some pics as well.

    Thanks guys. It was a strangely magical place unlike anything I'm used to seeing in our sagebrush covered country. There must have been a landslide years ago that created the lumpy texture to the landscape. And then to have it covered in that beautiful and naturally groomed ground cover is spectacular. Here's another picture from my same ride, but a different place. It was probably my best day of riding for the year.

    This is the Right Fork of Hobble Creek Canyon just east of Springville, Utah.
    The "Shire" is located where the pin marker is on the photo map I attached from Google Earth.

    If that doesn't work, I can send the coordinates to you.

    The volcano looking mountain is also up Right Fork, a few miles further from the Shire. Turn on FR115 and go right at the T-intersection. FR 115 will dump out onto Diamond Fork Rd and eventually to Hwy 6 (Spanish Fork Canyon).

    Hope this helps.

    Looked like a very enjoyable place and ride. Thinking it was time to throw out the blanket and set up for a picnic! Kinda looked like the trail petered out though eh? Still, very scenic that's for sure!

    Thanks for sharing.
