Surrounding Marysvale in south-central Utah, the 275 mile Paiute ATV Trail is one of the best ORV areas in the state. It has even been ranked one of the top 15 rides in the country. This loop trail has over 1000 miles of side trails and 1500 miles of adjacent forest roads. The main route passes through dense forests and near rivers. It takes about 25 hours of riding time to complete the loop. While many riders explore the lower altitude sections beginning in April, the higher altitudes sections over the Pahvants and the Sevier Plateau are usually snow covered into early July. Many riders feel that September and October are the best times to ride the entire loop. It is stongly advised to purchase the National Geographic / Trail Illustrated map for the Paiute Trail.
