Little Gem Cycle Park

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Sand Hollow Gulch, Sand Hollow Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

This large open area offers miles of trails, play areas, hill climbs and a natural terrain motocross track. The trails are open year-round and there is no fee to ride unless a race is being hosted.

The area can get very dusty so the best time to visit is after a rain. There are a couple staging areas with plenty of space for large trailers but no services so come prepared. Overnight parking is not permitted but camping can be found a few miles away at the East 10th Street RV Park.
