Guided rides with Cog Wild are a great way to get some epic riding and an insiders view of this former logging and mill town. Cog Wild’s local guides know what trails are riding well and have a reputation for sending folks home with faces sore from grinning. Let us take you to the perfect trails for your visit.

With a shuttle assisted guided ride we figure out the logistics and take you to the goods; you spend less time grinding up, and more time shredding down. We ride the classic trails: Alpine, Dead Mountain, Hardesty and Lawler, and take you to some of the lesser known gems including Timpanogas, Moon Point, Bunchgrass, Grasshopper, Tire Mountain, Cloverpatch and Eula.
