Family Friendly It's a good doubletrack so you can ride together and enjoy the company.

Description

You can start this trail directly from HWY 153 just before the road turns to dirt. The start of the ATV trail travels though an old resort of small dilapidated cabins and three private ponds. As you make your way past the last pond, make sure to stop and check out the waterfall to the east.

From there, continue along the track for a steady and relaxing descent down the valley. As the tree pull back, the creek will come into view. Note that although the trail is quite mellow, the segment between the two parallel tracks can be fairly soft and care should be taken when transferring back and forth.

After a few miles, the trail ends at a dirt road that continues around to Three Creeks. From there it's possible to pedal back up the resort. Or, if you've reserved a shuttle, Eagle Point can transport you back (Call 435-438-3612 for more information).
