East of Salt Lake City and south of Mountain View on the state line, the Deadhorse ATV Trail system has 40+ miles of trails and roads open to ATV riding.
The primary trailhead is located about 18 miles south of Mountain View, Wyoming. There are several campgrounds throughout the area that provide direct access to the ATV trail system.
To get to the riding area take exit 39 off of I-80. Head south on Hwy 414 towards Mountain View. Continue south on Hwy 410 through Mtn View approx. 18 miles. Hwy 410 turns into CR 283 which turns into China Meadows Rd. There is a trailhead on the right by the Warm-up Trail or you can park at the campgrounds.
Note: Like most National Forests, the trails and road are closed to ATV riding unless specifically signed open. Do not count on seeing a closure sign but expect to see an open sign. It is your responsibility to know which trails are open to your type of vehicle. Lately, it has been reported that the rangers in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest have been strictly enforcing closures and issuing Federal citations which require a court apperance and $150 fine.
Note: As of September 2007, ATV riding on Forest Service Roads is limited to designated roads. To obtain the latest map of designated roads, make sure to contact the Forest Service HQ at (801) 466-6411.
