The Orange trails are located in central Utah in Emery County and begin in the town Green River, 203 miles South East of Provo Utah. The Trailhead is located on the south side of I-70. Just west of the E. Main St. Exit off I-70 (the east side of town), turn West on New Area51 Rd 1,000 ft to the first intersection. You will see a very large parking lot on the south side of the intersection where you can park and turn even the largest rigs. If you are staying in Green River and simply want to ride out of town find 2270E, head south to Elgin Rd, turn right on Elgin to 800E. Follow 800E southward till it joins 900S and turn left. This will take you to the trailhead mentioned above.

The Orange Trail explores a great expanse between Green River and the Moab area. Its features vary greatly and includes things like the Crystal Geyser. There are no services along the 70 miles of trail we rode, so stock up on anything you need before leaving Green River. This is a great place to get away and enjoy some solitude while exploring a seldom seen part of Utah. The riding is pleasant and scenic, trails vary from easy to intermediate (depending upon recent weather and erosion).

At this point, we chose to stay to the right as we begin our 70-mile loop. We’ll be back here much later in the day.
Though much of the trail has seldom seen a grader, it is in remarkably good shape and generally easy for most riders.
A memorial to Bill Thompson (this trail was his project) sits at the intersection with the road to Crystal Geyser. Just spin the image around to see that road.
Frequent bottom of the wash sections.
From this overlook, you can see the White Wash Sand Dunes.
Out in the dunes, it is easy to lose the trail, GPS’s are great!
Certain areas are prone to flash floods like this wash. It hasn’t been long since there was a lot of water here.
Looking for a new place to hang your hat? I’d say this was hard living.
There are a few sections like this one that beginning riders might want to avoid. Bypasses are easily available by continuing on Salt Washington Rd N to Crystal Geyser Rd where it reconnects with this trail a few miles down the road.
If you were looking for the ‘Road Less Traveled’, this is it!
This left turn is easy to miss. See it over there in the rocks?
You will need to cross this pipeline, just take it easy as you go over it.
Here we are, right back where our big loop started.
