The Yellowstone trails are located in Duchesne County approximately 28.4 North of Duchesne UT, and 136 miles East of Provo Utah. It is a good idea to get detailed directions(below) before heading out as the route to the trailhead is a bit convoluted.

Keep in mind that the road to the Trailhead passes through Reservation property and OHVs are not allowed on the road until you reach the forest boundary. The last few miles of the access road are quality gravel, the parking lot is quite large, and virtually any vehicle should have no trouble getting here. The Trailhead has good parking located on the Northside of Forest Rd 227. Approximately 64 miles of routes are marked within the area. It will take you a few hours or day(s) to explore this system depending on your driving and whether you want to hike into the incredible wilderness that is adjacent and it is well worth the trip.

There are no services so stock up on anything you need before leaving Duchesne. There is a Forest Service Campground nearby if you intend to camp. 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 to expert (depending upon recent weather and erosion).

There are two main sections of the Yellowstone Trails. We opted to ride the Northside this day so we turned left at this intersection just as we leave the Trailhead area. This will lead us up the mountain on the Northside of the valley. If you head straight across you will be headed to the Southside of the valley and the campgrounds. We’ll be back to do that later.
FR 227 is usually a well-groomed gravel road. We seemed to have perfect timing and clearly the road Graders had stopped working for the day so we enjoyed some atypically messy trail for a while. Don’t let this section of half graded road affect your opinion. I’m certain this is much better now.
We quickly climb up to the Center Park Trailhead. This is the dead-end of FR227. From here you can hike into the Wilderness. There is a Vault Toilet here.
Backtracking just a bit you will find Mill Park Elev 10,300 and miles of beautiful meadows ahead.
There are a few side trails marked 42″ wide only so we didn’t try them on our 50″ RZR.
See that trail sign on the right side of the Left-hand fork? It is on the wrong trail. It should be on the Right-hand fork trail. No worries, feel free to explore the Left Fork. The view at the end is great.
Here is the View I promised.
More beautiful mountain meadows.
Look like a great place for a lunch break.
A bypass so you don’t have to deal with the gate.
The remainder of this trail is going to be rocky, very rocky. Hopefully, someone will run a trail cat over it soon and clear the loose rocks that can get tiresome. Still an awesome trail.
They call it Yellowstone because of this exposed formation, reminiscent of another similarly named place.
Only a few more miles of this rocky road and you will be back at the Trailhead
