The Forshea Mountain trails part of the Paiute Trail system and are located in Piute County and starts in the town of Marysvale UT. 178 miles south of Provo Utah. The trailhead begins in Marysvale Town Park where you are welcome to park while you ride. There is a restroom with running water here. While we rode approximately 45 miles there are many many more miles (thousands) of trail in the area. It will take you 4-5 hours to explore this trail depending on your driving and whether you take some of the side trails available. There are no services out on the trail so stock up on anything you need before leaving Marysvale.

Here is the parking area where we unloaded. There is no fee. It has plenty room for big rigs to turn around. There is a restroom with running water. All roads in Piute County are designated for OHV (excluding Highways which you can cross at 90 degrees). So you don’t need to be street legal to access any of the trails in the area.
You can stop and check out the 100-year-old bridge. Be careful has seen better days. She has a twin sister somewhere else. Can you find it?
We will take the old rive road aka Trail 37 south. Look for it right behind the town dumpsters after you cross the river.
The meandering Sevier river and soaring mountains of the Tushars. The kind of view that inspires a song.
Those blue table mountains in the distance are our destination today.
Switchbacks in Dry Creek Canyon take us up the mountain quickly. watch for oncoming traffic this is one of the 1.5 lane roads.
Very soon we have left the sagebrush and sand for forest and fall colors.
We are going to take the left turn for a bit. We will be back past here soon.
We really wanted to show you the top of Big Table Mountian but it appears the USFS has recently restricted access to 50″ or less. To narrow for the Ranger. Maybe later we will come back with the RZR.
We backtracked on trail 01 to hop on Paiute Trail 01 and head south.
The top of the Forsheas are defined by massive mountain meadows broken by occasional Pine forest.
On the south end of the Forshea we decide to take the path less traveled. Known as the ‘Pipeline Trail’. Those in rigs wider than our Ranger or concerned about their pain job may not want to take this route. It is becoming overgrown and we had quite a bit of scratching from scrub oak trees and Junipers. There are a few obstacles that challenged our 64″ ranger to get past. If you are wider than this you may have problems.
The trail is becoming overgrown and more difficult.
The passage width between that large boulder and the tree on the right is about 64″ (after we trimmed the tree).
It’s a shame there is no nice view 🙂
One Last Aspen forest before we head home.
You could stay on 01 to the left or drop back towards Marysvale on trail 25 via Cottonwood Canyon.
