Piute ATV Trail
This 275 mile trail is a loop with no beginning or end. It winds through beautiful, scenic countryside that should be enjoyed and taken in. The trail began using old roads and trails with new sections constructed to complete the loop. Early fall is a good time to ride the entire trail. After that time, some portions are closed. Many other parts remain closed until early summer. The highest point is 11,500 feet in the Tushar Mountains.
