We started our ride here at this pull off just off Highway 89 South of Mt. Carmel Junction. There is a good amount of parking and the trail takes off just across the highway.
There are several campgrounds along the way if you wanted to spend multiple days riding trails in this area.
The trail takes off to the left here. Portions of the trail cut through private property. While this is allowed, be sure to be extra respectful in these areas.
Depending on the time of year you ride this trail, you may end up riding through some water, mud, and snow.
The trail is mostly dirt roads, however there are some sections of slick rock as you can see here.
The trail takes us right to Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park – another really great place to explore if you haven’t yet.
