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.

From campsite 5 to the end and back on the road. I don't have mileage info because Trail Forks doesn't know how to work properly.

Went through the wedge which took most time, and enjoyed the scenic views, then looped back by the main road which only took like 30 - 45 mins. 20mi — 2h 30m
