Trail Overview

Speed Ridge is a short ATV trail on an adobe ridge line in the Flat Top - Peach Valley Recreation Area. The trail is two-track width, but not overly wide, with some whoops. It starts from Elephant Skin Road near the staging area and goes until it intersects with Kings Ditch. It starts in the valley below the adobe hills, made up of soft clay soil with some green vegetation. There are two ditch crossings that are more narrow and washed out with one off-camber section that could be difficult for an ATV. Then it climbs up the adobe hills and has gradual small hill climbs and descends along the ridge line. The trail looks like it's mostly ridden by dirt bikes and would be very easy on a dirt bike, but could be slightly more difficult for an ATV.

Access Description

The Flat Top Peach Valley Recreation Area is a 64,000-acre trail system made up of adobe hills and rocky desert mesas with almost 100 miles of trail, and a couple of open riding areas. The main staging areas are Flat Top, Peach Valley, and Elephant Skin Road, but all trails can be accessed from all staging areas. This is a highly trafficked area, especially on weekends, and has lots of blind corners around the adobe hills. It's best to visit in spring and fall to avoid the summer heat and winter snow. There is several days' worth of riding here, and it's easy to make a loop of your desired length since all the trails are relatively short and connect easily.
