A place like that exists, East of Boulder Utah, South of Capitol Reef NP, and North West of Lake Powell.
The Wolverine Moody Loop is a beginner level loop trail with an optional out and back section along the Moody Creek Road. The whole trip is 77 miles long and will be an all day event lasting between five to six hours.
The trailhead is located about 19 miles east of the town of Boulder (37.92, -111.22). Staging and camping can be done on wide pull outs once you exit the paved Burr Trail road. Even large rigs that venture out this way will find a place to park or camp that wont give you too much trouble. The trail features scrubby red desert and beautiful red rock ledges and canyons.
Most of the terrain is a well maintained dirt road, but there may be sandy washes to traverse at certain points. This is a very remote area that you can get to easily thanks to the quality of the roads.
One of the unique aspects of this trail is the amount of petrified wood and petrified forests that exist along the loop. You can read about one of the many locations here: learn more.
The closest town is Boulder, which has some lodging and restaurants, but for more amenities and supplies you can visit Escalante to the west, Torrey to the north (though Notom Road may rattle your teeth loose) or Ticaboo to the east.
Safety wise – this area of the state gets very hot, so make sure you bring more water than you need, and pay attention to the weather to avoid flash floods.
