The Paiute ATV Trails is often described as having no beginning and no end. The Paiute Trails consists of a main loop that’s roughly 280 miles and takes approximately 25 hours of riding time to complete. With an estimated 700 miles of additional marked trails plus another estimated 1900 miles of side roads and trails making this the largest ATV trail system in the country. So you can understand why it truly has no beginning and no end
Voted by Dirt Wheels Magazine as one of the top 10 trail systems in the country. Rated as one of the top 5 trails systems in the country by ATV Illustrated Magazine. Most riders consider this the number ONE trail system in the southwest
The Paiute ATV Trail is a joint venture administered by the Fishlake National Forest, the Sevier River Resource Area of the BLM, and the Utah Division of Parks and Recreation. A committee of private individuals, and representatives of City, County, State, and Federal organizations guides trail development and use.
Forming this trail involved connecting roads and trails crossing the Fishlake National Forest and BLM controlled land. Some narrow sections of trails were constructed to finish the #01 Loop. The Main #01 loop alone contains 800 miles of marked side trails, is 238 miles long, and includes approximately 1900 miles of side forest roads and trails available for off road vehicles and other recreational vehicles.
This trail was NOT built for people wanting to go out and race, rip through trails, or otherwise rush through a ride for speed. It is intended for those who want to explore the scenery, take pictures, fish, camp and get away from the daily grind.

We could never begin to provide a complete description of all the different trails available in the Paiute ATV Trail System, because there are so many of them. For that kind of detail, please visit Marysvale Utah Website This site has comprehensive, in depth detail about the trail.
We encourage anyone venturing out on the trail to purchase the National Geographic Paiute ATV Trail Map available for purchase at the Big Rock Candy Mountain Resort Convenience Store. They cost less than $12, are tear proof, waterproof, and provide a level of detail we couldn’t even begin to provide.
Accessing the trail system from Big Rock Candy Mountain is quite simple: go over the bridge between Cabins 106 and 105, or drive through the RV Park and cross the larger bridge just past the RV Park. Both bridges bring you to trails #21 and #74 in seconds.
View the Big Rock Property Map for location of the bridges.

No! The entire Paiute Trail system has not been opened to 60″ vehicles.
Yes! Some trails were converted to being open to vehicles 60″ or less in width. These routes were mostly old roads that had been made into 50″ trails when the Forest Service originally went to the 50″ Rule. Now that each Forest had the option to designate routes to accommodate appropriate use some of these old roads were reassessed and designated as open to vehicles 60″ or less in width. The Forest Service took five years to assess all of their routes in this area and made their decision based on practicality, use patterns, safety and community desires.
