Range Study Loop

An excellent family ride and a great route for novice riders. Except for one steep section, the route is easy pedaling and offers views of Diamond Mountain. Aspen groves and wildflowers dot the trail as well. This area was once studied by the Forest Service to determine the effects of grazing on the native vegetation, giving the trail its name. Expect to see cattle in this area during the summer. Because of the mileage, this trail is rated intermediate.

435-781-5154 (Gen Info)
10 miles
Time to Allow
2 hours

From Vernal, head north along US 191 for 24 miles. On the right and just off the highway is the signed trailhead. Park here. Pedal through the gate and continue along the double track dirt road, heading southeast. After about four miles of easy cruising, the trail bottoms out in a draw. Take a sharp right and climb out of the draw along a steep hill for about 1/3 mile. After this climb, the trail gradually ascends for the next 5 miles, leveling off just before the trailhead where the loop ends.
