Trail Overview

City Creek runs parallel to Hwy 153 going west of Junction, Utah. This track goes up through the canyon City Creek runs in. It is also part of Paiute Side Trail 34. The canyon is filled with sagebrush, bushes, and trees. The trail in places is gravely dirt, but in places, it's mostly rocks. The rocks aren't big enough to be obstacles, they're more like river rocks. Once you break out of the canyon, you move across the top before dropping into Oak Basin. The possibility of seeing wildlife in here is good, as there is feed and water. It's a beautiful spot here in southern Utah. There are spur and side trails off of this Canyon as well. If you are here in the early spring, or after a heavy rain, this trail may increase in difficulty due to runoff erosion. Don't forget, to off-road in UT you need to have the online education course certificate as well as the OHV sticker.

Difficulty

Rocks in the trail can be driven around unless they've been moved by the water since we rode the trail. It was dry in late June, but heavy rains or spring runoff have the potential to make it muddy.
