    We traveled out west in search of some new riding trails and hit the jackpot, we came acroos these hidden trails while crossing through an old cow pasture out in the west desert. The trails had the feel of high mountain single track like AF Canyon but without all the rocks and tree roots. Best of all we only saw a few riders all weekend and it was memorial day. I put this loop as one of my favorite finds this year.

    Warner valley is probably one of our favorite places to ride. It has hundreds of miles of single track trails to ride. depending on where you ride you have hard pack, sand, whoops, washes, rocky terrain like the goblin valley trails. These off road motorcycle trails are best in fall through the spring as temperatures can get in the 3 digits in the summer. It is good to go with someone who is familiar with the area but just take good notes of your surroundings. Stay out during the high wet season as there can be flash floods. This video was started from the google maps link under the video. The rides can be anywhere from easy to difficult depending on where you ride but most of the terrain is moderate.

Cherry Creek is locate just North of the little Sahara Sand Dunes. Cherry Creek has alot of different dirt bike trails to offer. If you like whoops then you are in heaven. Stay on the south side and up toward Porter Rockwells Ranch for lots off whoops and trees. Head up north for some good off road motorcycle trails. You will find some good single track and some fun washes to ride in and some sand trails. Cherry Creek has desert races and holds one of the nationals. If you have never seen one it is unreal. A great plave to bring the family for some great family rides. When going through the trees always stop and listen for other vehicles on the motorbike trails to avoid a head on collision. We started this trail from the parking lot on my google map and headed west down the fence line until we got to Porter Rockwells Ranch.

We hit the idaho sand dunes every year, they are some of the biggest we have rode. These sand dunes have some good motorbike trails, some smaller dunes to the east and bigger dunes like devils dune , the biggest sand dune I have rode are farther west you go. There are land marks and trail markings on the front side that make it easy to navigate. Best in early spring or late fall. Always wear safty gear and you must have a flag mounted on your bike. They offer RV hookups for a fee or you can stay in a hotel in St Anthony or Rexburg. They have a parts store in the parking lot or you can stop in at Rexburg motorsports.

Little Moab is great place to take the family or friends if you want to try your skills in the sand, single track, washes, rocks it has it all. It is not a very big area but a great place for kids to get out and ride off road motorcycle trails and it is fairly close to Utah County. It has some great trails to practice for desert races like the ones at cherry creek. Take Santauin exit 244 and head west about 10 miles then turn right in Elberta 12800 W st. Drive until you see mile marker 7 then hang a left. 2 miles up the rode you can park and ride in the sand and single track trails. Follow the rode a few miles up and you will find dozens of trails and the little moab section off to the right.

DBF Review:
    We spent the weekend on west beach and decided to try out some of the OHV trails. Most of the trails were easy but there was some terrain that had sand, loose gravel and you can get into some rocky areas but for the most part if you stay on the easy trails the kids can ride with you and enjoy the surrounding views. After a hot ride we went and jumped in the lake to cool down. you can pick up a free map at either end of the lake at the pay booth. There is a lot of private property, please stay out of these areas. you can get to yuba by traveling down I-15 south of Nephi exit 202 (Yuba Lake Exit)go south on Yuba Dam road 2 miles until you hit North beach Trailhead. Continue 2 miles down the road to reach Oasis and yuba Dam Trailheads.

Diamond Fork Utah Monks Hollow ATV Trail 125 0

DBF Review:
    We started this trail from the diamond fork side. The trail is pretty easy and is a good trail to take kids on. It goes up over the mountain and ends at highway 6. Once you get to the top and start heading down the trail starts to get a little rocky. This is a good place to turn around if you have a beginner with you. Towards highway 6 it gets a little more difficult and has more rocky sections. To get here from Spanish Fork head up canyon highway 6 about 5 miles past the windmills. Turn left at the diamond fork turn off and head up the canyon 7.5 miles. Turn right into group parking and you will see the trail head.

    This area is acctually out by Washington utah, we took washington dam road and parked over north of warner valley. The google map above will show where we parked. We started out heading south up the wash and played out in the sand and out into warner valley over the Arizona border. After luch we headed down Pecon RD to the north a couple miles, when you see sand trails on the right follow the trail up and then hang a right at the top where you see the golf course on the left. This will take you up to the rocky playground. You can jump back on the dirt road and towards warner valley on the cliffs and you will eventually get to the Sand Hollow sand dunes but you will need a flag if you go out that way. These trails are best done in spring, fall, and winter as the tempertures get in the 100’s in the summer. Remember you are in the desert so pack lots of water if you are planning a long ride. The area we parked in has a large area for kids to ride bikes and 4 wheelers also.
