Trail Map

This ride isn't on a specific trail, but consists of a series of two-track dirt roads and single-track cow paths that often connect to make longer loops. The riding in this area is enjoyable but not too difficult. What really makes it special are the scenic vies of the Uintah Basin, Brush Creek Gorge and Ashley Gorge. Open sagebrush meadows dominate the area with interspersed aspen and conifer groves. Try a ride out Roaring Fork Road to the Brush Creek overlook or one of the routes that take you to the edge of Ashley Gorge. You'll be amazed at some of the most spectacular views in eastern Utah.

Basic Directions

From Vernal, go west on 500 North, past Uintah High School to 2500 West in Maeser. Turn north and follow that road approximately 9 miles until the pavement ends at the Ashley National Forest boundary. Continue slowly (it's rough!) for another 4-5 miles to the top of the hill. Find a good spot to pull off and park and then find a route to suit your fancy. If you don't know the area, take along a topographic map to aid you in route finding.
