Description

The Y-11 Trail is an intermediate/advanced singletrack trail which parallels County Road Y-11 also known as the River Road between Uravan on Hwy 141 and Bedrock in the Paradox Valley. The Y-11 starts at the old iron bridge just downstream from the reclaimed mill town of Uravan along Hwy 141.

The trail can be seen climbing along the south edge of a large open area. Follow CR Y-11 for less than a quarter mile and look for an small gravel pit which will lead you up to the trail. It will eventually begin a long gradual ascent up a sometimes narrow, rocky and technically challenging bench. Watch out for exposed cliffs as the trail nears the edge.

After about 2.5 miles the trail continues up a wide, flat section coming to the edge of the Saucer Basin drainage at mile 3.5. Here riders can turn back to make this a great out and back ride. To make a loop out of it continue down on the trail into the drainage where it will meet the rough two track coming up from CR Y-11.
