The ride up Power House Road was rather familiar and enjoyable, although strenuous. However, after that, the road kept dividing and I was unsure how to reach the summit. My uncle, Arch, was riding with my cousins on a four-wheeler and I met him while I was riding. He suggested that I take Kent's Canyon Trail. Unfortunately, this trail was mostly hike a bike. As was the case with my attempt to reach the Wasatch Crest Trail last week, the trail didn't seem to be getting any flatter and I eventually just turned around.
I'm looking at the map now and it shows Power House Road clearly going straight up and over Elkhorn Ridge, however, I didn't see this route when I was up in the mountain. Looking back on it now with Google Maps, it looks so easy. Why is it that what looks so easy on a map, is so strenuous and difficult in real life?
