West Desert ATV
There are four excellent ATV trail systems on public land in our western desert. The trails climb rugged mountains, cross deep canyons and ascend juniper-covered hillsides.
This area is remote - there are essentially no services available west of Delta. The area is also very dry. You must carry any water, food and fuel you think you will need, plus a little extra just in case. Also carry tools and emergency equipment.
Spring and fall months provide the best riding weather. Summers can be very hot but it is still pleasant to ride early and late in the day. Winter nights are cold but days are often mild and riding can be enjoyable.
A Utah highway map may be helpful to get into the general area where you want to ride. The maps and guides listed below were prepared as a joint project by BLM, Forest Service, Utah Division of Parks and Recreation, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Utah Trust Lands and Millard County. For more info on these trails call the BLM's Filmore office: 435-743-3100.
