Near Lehi, the Five Mile Pass OHV Area is one of the more popular dirt biking areas.
It is located approximately 15 miles west of Lehi, Utah on Highway 73 on the Tooele/Utah County border. The trailhead is on the north side of SR 73. It is nearly a quarter mile in length and about half that distance wide. There are no rest rooms at the site. The closest public rest room is found in Cedar Fort. Dispersed camping is permitted in the area. Several of the areas in the cedar trees surrounding the area are ideal for this purpose.
Going North from the trailhead area will lead you with a multiplicity of choices most of which will lead you up the mountainous terrain for very enjoyable riding. Not for the faint of heart, there are trails that go directly up some of the steeper mountainsides. These are not for the beginners.
The southern loop hosts a wonderful variety of trails. Going west from the trail head you will want to take the first road over the Highway 73 to the South side of the area. Here again you can go literally every conceivable direction. If you continue west you will find a beautiful view of Rush valley.
The trail to the west can take you west of highway 73. There is a flat sage brush valley floor that is open to riding, but please be careful, because there is also some restricted areas out there. Please consult the map so you don't get out of the authorized riding area.
The Manning Mill / Manning Canyon area of Five Mile Pass is temporarily closed due to EPA cleanup operations.
Overall, Five Mile Pass Area is the 61st most popular dirt bike trail of all 68 dirt biking rides in Utah.
