Fivemile Pass OHV Area

Friday, April 28, 2023

Other Names

Thorpe Hills, Sevenmile Pass, Wells Canyon, Sunshine Canyon, Mitchell Canyon, Manning Canyon, 5 Mile Pass, Mercur Canyon, Five Mile Pass

Last Known StatusOpen

A popular spot for the locals, this large public area is open year-round and features scattered makeshift motocross tracks and miles of ATV trails that wind through rugged and rocky hills and valleys. Vegetation is sparse but there are some scattered juniper, pinion pine trees and sage brush.

The terrain is described as mostly rugged and hard packed dirt trails with loose chunk rock and light to moderate elevation changes. During and after wet weather the area can get very slippery and muddy. Overall this is a good place for experienced riders during late spring and early fall months. Summers are hot and dry, making the trails very dusty.

Camping is permitted and there is plenty of flat parking to accommodate large trailers. Five new vault toilets have been put in but there is no shade or water, so bring your own supplies.
