The 24-7 Trail in the Jeremy Ranch neighborhood near Park City, Utah, is an easy-to-access ride that is a perfect trail to jump on once you get off of work. Not as popular as many of the famous trails in town, this one sits on the northern border of the Basin Recreation network but still does connect to the mighty Flying Dog Trail. The steep and rocky climb eventually levels out after a few switchbacks to amazing views of the golf course below and the mountain ski resort runs in the distance. The trail is mostly smoothed out, but it still has some rocky sections as you roll up and down the ridgeline heading southwest. Crossing over the first crest gives you some downhill action but then leads back into a little more uphill. Eventually you begin to get a smoother trail and consistent downhill as the ride goes from the effort stage to enjoyment stage. Soon you will hit a paved road crossing (Red Hawk Trail) just before you make your way into the aspen forest.

There are several ways to make this trail a loop if you want your return to be on the paved road. You can take Red Hawk Trail down back into the neighborhoods and stay straight; this becomes Daybreaker Drive, which is the same street the trailhead started on. Climb over the top of that large hill (heading north and then west) and you will get a really fast and fun paved ride right back to your car. You can also complete the full 24-7 Trail and return the same way you came, which is about 9 miles round trip. Lastly, you can make your return on one of the several unnamed connector trails that drops you onto Daybreaker Drive, or you can stay on 24-7 until you hit the "Fink Again" and then  the "Graduate" trails, which would put you down by the water reclamation plant (requiring a road ride through the roads of Jeremy Ranch to get back to your car).

This south facing trail is very sunny and exposed for basically the entire day, and it is thus probably one of the earliest trails to dry out in spring and one of the last to shut down before winter. Keep an eye out for the many porcupine, deer or moose that like to walk along the trail and also for off-leash dogs. The trailhead is located where Daybreaker Drive and Jeremy Ranch Drive meet, and parking is available along the nearby paved and dirt roads. The trail is rated blue for difficutly and is an exposed two-way singletrack mostly lined with scrub oak.
