Trail Overview

BLM Route 186 is a fast and easy single track that flows across green meadows and valleys in the lower section of the north Fruita desert. It starts in a green grassy meadow on a narrow track that in springtime, will likely have some mud. It looks like the cows use this trail too, as there are lots of hoof prints and cow patties right in the trail. It goes along a fence line with lots of big dips into ditch crossings and with lots of whoops. The east end of the trail starts at an intersection with single-track trail 196, and the west end of the trail at an intersection with single-track trail 185. It's overall an easy trail, being mostly flat, with no rocks in the trail, and no significant obstacles. You can connect this trail to many of the other single tracks in the area for a fun day loop with varying difficulties. Most of the trails in the lower valley are similarly fast and easy trails over rolling hills and in and out of ditches. These are shared-use trails and you'll likely encounter other mountain bikers or dirt bikers. These trails also have great views looking towards the colorful mesas and Book Cliffs overlooking the valley.
