DBF Review:
    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.

DBF Review:
    This is another one of the funner trails in the San Rafael Goblin Valley area. We started from the goblin valley side. From our google map look for the trail 845 then connect over to 848 thats the trail head. From here you have an option of difficult to extremely difficult trails. We took the orange trail out to the blue and looped around. you have access to the 5 miles of hell or the red trail if you want to try your skills. This trail is funnest in spring and fall. Be sure to try th waterfall trail it is one of our favorites.

Tie Fork Trail 023 Upper Sheep Creek 0

Upper Sheep Creek Trail 023

We made our way up sheep creek up towards strawberry ridge in search of some new trails. We came across the end of centerline (009) in diamond fork and tried out a new trail accross the road (023) that dropped over towards soldier summit. This trail was really fun and had some gnarly water crossings. With all the snow this year some trails we have been on are almost impossible to cross but we always seem to find a way. The first few croosings were not so bad but the the one at 2:18 was deep. It was worse in real life than the video shows. When he came back across he nearly endoed, we had a good laugh.

Whiting Campground Trail Head Mapleton Utah 0

June 27th, 2011

Last wed I met up with a couple of riders and we headed up Maple Canyon to hit the trail head at whiting campground. We were a bit worried the water was going to be to high because you have to ride right up the stream for a couple of miles. Ended up being perfect conditions, no snow and was very dry up top. We went up and took the fork over towards hobble creek then looped back around and connected to sawmill (013) on the diamond fork side and looped back to the trail head. We did about a 4 hour ride with a few minor obsticles. I got a pinch flat that I had to pump up every 30 minutes, I fouled out my spark plug, went down in the river, and fought a up hill log crossing for about 20 minutes. Ended up getting dehydrated and thought I was going to die but was glad I made it back in one piece. This trail is really fun but very rocky for the first 5 miles as you can see in the video. My helmet camera died before we hit the hobble creek side where there was a lot of water falls right next to the trail. 30 seconds into the video you will see a nice log crossing they added last year, very fun trail.

Warner Valley Dino Track Single Track 0

May 19th, 2011

|  Location: Washington, Ut  |  GPS: 37.01208,-113.374979  |  Google map  |
Difficulty: Moderate

Length: 15 mile loop

Time: 1.5
DBF Review:
    This is a very fun trail that runs along the cliffs between Washington and Hurricane. If you have been out here before point A on the google map above is the turn off to the Dinosaur tracks. You can take the road to point B but for fun at point A instead of taking the right turn on the road go through the fence and hang a right on the fence line trail. Go a couple hundred feet and you will pass 1 wash and you will want to hang a left on the second wash, it is big and wide open, you can see it on the map. Follow it towards Hurricane for about eight miles. You will end up crossing the main road and you can look up on the hill side at point B and see the trail. There is no real trail head we stumbled upon this trail a couple years ago on accident. It will loop back along the mountain towards where you started. Make sure to check out the dinosaur tracks at point A. You will see a sign to the trail head where you can take a short walk to check them out.

Goblin Valley Waterfall Trail 1

October 20th, 2010


|  Location: Near Green River, Utah  |  GPS: 38.655488,-110.656443  |  Google map  |
Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

Length: 12.5 miles

Time: 1 to 2 hours depending on riding ability
DBF Review:
    I will have to say this is one of the funnest off road motorcycle trails we have done. We came from the top down, the trail head is a couple hundred feet off the main road. The goblin valley trails are really fun. Pick up a map at the Price Ut BLM office. This dirt bike trail had every obsticle from washes, rock climbs, whoops, drops. Check out the plaque at 4:00 pretty funny and true story. This trail is best in the spring or fall as it can get really hot in the summer and is really sandy in the washes like the sand dunes. Always bring water to keep hydrated when in the desert and do not travel alone. Do not take this trail if rain is in the forcast alot of it is in a wash.

AF Canyon Single Track 178-179 Bear Canyon 0

October 6th, 2010

| Location: Near American Fork, Ut | GPS: 40.449347,-111.64371 | Google map |
Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

Length: N/A

Time: 2 to 4 hours depending on starting route

DBF Review:
We started this trail from the pine hollow parking lot on the Alpine loop. We went up 047 and worked are way over to come down 178 and 179. The forest service ask that on this trail you only go down so you do not tear up the logs by mutual dale camp ground where you come out. This trail is good for a moderate rider but has some gnarly, loose, steep switchbacks towards the bottom. You can pick up a map at the mouth of the canyon. There is a fee to get in the canyon but well worth it. You can also pick up a map at the ranger station in Pleasant grove for $10.00 that covers all the trails in Utah County. Please watch for horses, hikers, and mtn. bikers.

    We started this trail from the parking lot on the Alpine loop. The first half mile you are riding right on the edge of a cliff down to the alpine loop. I don’t recommend looking down just look at the trail and go. It has a couple switchbacks but the trail is a short trip up to the AF trail system if you don’t like the crowds in tibble fork. You can pick up a map at the mouth of the canyon. There is a fee to get in the canyon but well worth it. You can also pick up a map at the ranger station in Pleasant grove for $10.00 that covers all the trails in Utah County. Please watch for horses, hikers, and mtn. bikers.

AF Canyon Single Track Trail 157 0

Difficulty: Intermediate

Length: N/A

Time: 2 to 3 hours
DBF Review:
    We started on the Alpine Summit trail head 252 then road 157 up and came down 040 to tibble fork parking lot. Pole Line Pass trail pretty much touches most the trail systems up AF. You can take it north all the way to snowbird or south takes you accross towards Mt Timpanogos. The trail to the North is more loose rocks and has a cliff section, to the south is more moderate with rocky sections but can easily be handled by a beginner.This video only shows the 157 section. You can pick up a map at the mouth of the canyon. There is a fee to get in the canyon but well worth it. You can also pick up a map at the ranger station in Pleasant grove for $10.00 that covers all the trails in Utah County. Please watch for horses, hikers, and mtn. bikers.

AF Canyon Upper 157 To Pole Line Pass 0

DBF Review:
    We started this trail from the tibble fork parking lot. We headed up 040 until we hit the trail head of 157 heading up to pole line pass. It has a few technical spots but and anyone with intermediate skills should be able to ride this. As you can see in the video it is a little harder when wet it gets really slick. I recommend walking across the section at 6:10 a few have gone off the ledge and had to take a 2 hour detour through the trees below to forest lake. You can pick up a map at the mouth of the canyon. There is a fee to get in the canyon but well worth it. You can also pick up a map at the ranger station in Pleasant grove for $10.00 that covers all the trails in Utah County.
