Because of the short length this trail (including all of its tangents), it only takes about two to three hours to complete. There are plenty of fun offshoots to explore and see what the undeveloped and historic areas of Tropic are like.
You can begin the trail by staging in Tropic and city roads out to the dirt. The unpaved sections of this trail are maintained dirt roads and should accommodate most machines.
The town of Tropic also works as a wonderful hub to several other areas including Kodachrome State Park, Bryce Canyon National Park and a plethora of other exciting offroad experiences.
Because of the nature of this desert area, inclement weather can cause flash flooding and washing out of trails. Keep an eye on the weather during colder months and bring extra water during the summer.
