Description

This area is the other side of nowhere. You have to want to get there. There are no services for 50-70 miles in any direction, but this trail is well worth the trip on well maintained dirt/gravel roads.

This is not a place to be in wet weather, however, as the roads would be like grease on glass. There is great dispersed BLM camping at several locations with easy on/off the trail and access roads.

The trail has almost constant turns and up-and-downs. It features some rock ledges, but few over 12". The trail tread is made up of loose sandstones slabs with some small slick rock areas mixed in.

See utahmountainbiking.com/trai… for detailed access directions.
