The RTS Loop is an easy mountain bike trail that is fun for all levels and makes for a quick ride in the Kimball Junction area without much technical terrain. The gentle slope of the hillside gives riders an easy place to get some exercise and a little bit of speed. Most of the trail is in good condition, but there are a few rocky sections, especially in the northern section. The sun sets behind the western hills relatively late, and most of the trail is exposed enough to be ridden in dark conditions. The aspen groves burst yellow during the fall, and you can watch people doing the massive jumps at the nearby Utah Olympic Park. This trail is short, so laps are really the way to go here. You are also in a great place to grab a bite or drink close to this trail.

The large parking lot fills up quickly after 5 p.m. on weekdays; you can park on the main road or across the street at Run A Mok Dog Area. This is a popular hiking and trail running spot as well. Keep an eye out for moose to avoid startling the large and common animals. From RTS you can also access Iron Bill, BLT, the Millennium Trail and Legacy Loop.
