The Paiute ATV trail is located in central Utah and consists of a loop of
about 300 miles. In addition to the main loop there are approximately
1800 miles of side trails that spur off of the main trail. The Paiute
Trail also connects with the Fremont Trail system to the south and the
Sanpete ATV area to the north. You can spend weeks riding these
trails. No matter if you ride ATVs, UTVs, or Dirt Bikes this is
considered one if not the best trail system in the county.
We started our adventure by picking up or Polaris Ranger
UTV from Lizzie and
Charlie's RV and ATV Park. Lizzie and Charlie's is ideally
located in the center of the Paiute Trail in town of Marysvale.
In additional to RVs and ATVs they also have cabins for rent if you are
flying in from out of town like we did.
If you like wide open vistas you will love the area round Marysvale. The first few miles of trail lead through cattle
This was my first trip on a UTV. I am typically a
dirt bike guy but I have to say I loved the Polaris Ranger Crew. I was
able to navigate while Randy drove us around. I also loved the
ability to talk to my friends instead of just pointing at something like
we do on dirt bikes.
Heading for the mountains!
As you can see we were racing the sun to get to our first night's camping
spot. After picking up our Polaris Ranger rental at 7 pm we only
had about 1.5 hours to get to our camping spot 25 miles away. Lucky for
us we were there over the 4th of July when the days are long.
The Paiute Trail is listed as trail #01 and the side trails are all
Milo at Lizzie and
Charlie's ATV told us one of the best camping spots along the trail
was at Manning Meadows Reservoir. He was correct, we loved the
spot right next to dam.It also had a restroom.
Be sure to bring your fishing pole, the reservoir is stocked with tons of
fish. If you like geocaching there is a great place to the right at the dam.
