ATV Trails

The Paiute Trail, rated as one of the top trails in the country, will take you through several small towns and historic sites. No matter which direction you go, the sites of nature will be all around you. This loop trail passes through several towns and has side trails leading to others. The main trail is 275 miles long, and totals nearly 2200 miles including  marked side trails and forest service roads and trails. Due to its vast size, the Paiute ATV Trail is best explored in segments. The trail is designed to provide a memorable recreational ride through fantastic scenery. Come enjoy days of great riding, or participate in one of the local ATV rallies or jamborees.
