Trail Map

An advanced level ride due to the steep, rocky downhill section near the end of the trail. This route provides plenty of attractions over a short distance. Outstanding views are coupled with groves of aspen and conifer forests. Fall colors are exceptional. If necessary, walk your bike down the steeper sections to prevent trail erosion.

Basic Directions

From Vernal head north 24 miles along US 191. The Bassett Springs trailhead is well signed, lying directly across the highway from the trailhead for the Range Study Loop. The trail is also well marked with bike trail signs along the way. Head north along the double track dirt trail. After about 1.5 miles, the trail gets steeper and deteriorates. About 1 mile farther, the trail tops out on Grizzly Ridge. The views to the south are worthwhile from here. The loop trail descends down a steep, rocky section back to the trailhead. This section requires excellent bike handling skills and a good deal of caution as well.
