There are four excellent ATV trail systems on public land in our western desert. They climb rugged mountains, cross deep canyons and ascend juniper-covered hillsides. The remote desert landscape allows these three trails to be accessed later in fall and earlier in the spring then most high mountain trails.
This area is remote – there are no services between Delta and the Utah/Nevada state line. The area is also very dry, please carry extra water, food and fuel, plan for more than you think you will need, plus extra just incase. Carry an extra spare tire, tools and emergency equipment.
Spring and fall months provide the best riding weather. Summers can be very hot but it is still pleasant to ride early and late in the day. Winter nights are cold but days are often mild and riding can be enjoyable.
See our excellent, printable trail guides and maps for detailed information on the trail systems listed below. A Utah highway map may be helpful to get into the general area and detailed topographical maps are available if you really want to explore these places.
