Sanpitch OHV Trail

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Other Names

Manti-la Sal National Forest, Maple Canyon, Log Canyon, Log Maple Canyon Loop, Sanpete Valley, Wasatch Plateau

Last Known StatusOpen

This trail system offers a 26 mile long loop that begins outside the town of Fountain Green, Utah. The trail eventually heads northwest into Log Canyon and evenually descends into Maple Canyon.

This area offers beautiful forest scenery and nicely maintained trails. Most of the terrain is rated as easy and there are no width restrictions, making this a perfect place for the wider machines.

Dispersed camping is permitted throughout the forest but Maple Canyon Campground offers 15 sites with standard amenties and potable water. Reservations are recommended but visitors should note that this is primarily a tent campground but a group site is available that can accomodate trailers up to 35 feet.

This trail is open year-round but the ATV riding season begins July 1 through mid October. For spectacular fall foliage visit this area around September 20 through October 10.
