Trail Overview

This is a fun trail on the rim of a canyon ledge in Westwater, Utah with stunning views of the canyon below and surrounded by colorful mesas. The trail is fast and flowy on the canyon rim through pinon pine and red rock. There are a couple of rock ledges and loose rock but is mostly fast dirt singletrack. It passes a couple of campgrounds and can be ridden in connection with many of the other motorized trails in the Westwater Trail System.


This is an easy trail throughout with no significant obstacles, but does have mild ledge exposure because you are riding 4-8 feet from a several hundred foot drop off throughout the entire trail.
