The Salina to Gooseberry Loop is a great beginner trail that can accommodate virtually any vehicle. If you want to get off the pavement into some trees you will want to bring a 50″ or smaller machine because there is some great riding in this area that you can access from this route. The entire loop is 70 miles and took us 5.5 hours (moving) to complete. Plan a full day for this ride because there are a number of small ponds and reservoirs to hike around and look at. This is also a good beginner trail because there is a fair amount of pavement and easy dirt roads to ride on.

We started at the Salina City Park and crossed under I-70 to start up the canyon. Nearby Salina has a few restaurants, gas, groceries and some lodging. There is a variety of dispersed and developed camping in the area. If you plan you trip around the annual Eyes to the Sky Balloon Festival (https://eyestotheskyballoonfestival.com/), you will have enough time in the morning to catch the balloons before heading out on the trail to beat the heat in the valley.

The elevation makes this a good summer or early fall ride, especially if you go when the leaves are changing. Fish Lake and Pando are nearby if you continue on Forest Road 640 after you get to the top of the trail.

There is plenty of parking and a kiosk about the trail near the intersection of Veyo Shoal Creek Road and Bench Road. The trail will take you northwest into the Dixie National Forest and some cooler temperatures.
You will cross under I-70 and head up Soldier Canyon.
Here is another area where you could park to head out on this trail or find access to a pit toilet. This is also the trailhead for the Gooseberry snowmobile complex in the winter.
There are a few of these great pulloffs from the main road that take you into the quakies for a picnic or some camping.
Here’s the view near the top of your ascent on the trail.
The trail does have some pit toilets along the way. This is at the Twin Ponds CUA Dispersed Camping Area. A short way down the road is the Cold Springs CUA Dispersed Camping Area.
You’ve reached the top!
Great views all around with this parking lot to stop and let the rest of the group catch up. We headed toward Cold Spring to the west from here.
As you can see it’s a pretty easy going trail (lots of pavement and some dirt roads).
Follow the sign for Rex Reservoir.
