Description: Head south on 700 east and 300 east until you reach the Bangerter highway extension (at 138 south). Take that up to highland and head north to Pioneer road. Pioneer road to 1300 east and 128 south. Then head over to Wasatch and head north to Creek road.
Comments: The extension of Bangerter from 138 south up to Highland where it connects to Traverse Ridge is fairly new. It looked like a fun way to climb. It's about a 7 to 9% grade in sections, but has a nice wide shoulder. This ride includes nice climbs and some rolling hills. I love riding on the benches in this area of town.

If you live on the south end of the valley, than this is a ride you deserve to do frequently. It doesn't take long to ride and offers a great challenge. I really like this ride.

One of my favorite rides, and the roads are in great condition for most of the way (Pioneer road the lone exception). The climb up Bangerter to Highland really gets your heart rate going, but Highland heads downhill at this point for several miles making it easy to recover. For those of us that live in the south east valley, this one of our most utilized training routes, often times incorporated into longer rides.
