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.

    We decided to go find some new trails so we headed south to Mesquite, NV. We headed up the road west of
Virgin Casino up towards the dump and found a pull off. The trails here were so fun there was everything from
sand, to washes, singletrack, some killer hill climbs and much more. We rode for 8 hours and still did not have
time to see it all. I will put Mesquite dirt bike trails in my top five favorite places to ride.#

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.

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.

Warner Valley St George, Utah 2

    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.

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.

DBF Review:
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.

    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 lunch 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 temperatures 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.
