There are miles and miles of ATV trails throughout Bryce Canyon Country, running through Dixie National Forest and within Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, over impressive terrain with incredible views.
Yankee Meadows Ride
Yankee Meadows Ride follows the South Shore of Panguitch Lake, leading to Clear Creek Road and the Yankee Reservoir Overlook. This is a great scenic ride, heavily forested with switchbacks and opening to breathtaking views of Bryce Canyon Country’s red rock landscape. Yankee Reservoir is the perfect spot to take in the view, stretch your legs, and take advantage of the facilities. Follow Yankee Meadows trail for another mile to reach an open meadow perfect for picnicking.
Bull Rush Loop
Bull Rush Loop takes you on an incredibly scenic ride through thick forests and over sagebrush hills. This challenging trail features very narrow stretches and a rocky vertical descent into a dry wash. Bull Rush Peak tops out at 6,380 feet.
Casto Canyon / Limekiln Loop
Enjoy a full day of scenic ATV riding along the 90-mile Casto Canyon / Limekiln Loop. The loop begins and ends in Panguitch, winding through Casto Canyon and intersecting with the Fremont Trail at Circleville (roughly the halfway point). Circleville is a great place to stop for lunch; we recommend the Butch Cassidy Restaurant. There are amazing mountain views and red rock formations in Casto Canyon are comparable to Bryce Canyon National Park. The forest changes from pinyon pine and juniper to Ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, and aspen as you climb elevation. This is a great trail for wildlife viewing. The return section of the loop trail winds through Dog Valley then crosses Highway 89. Follow Sandford Creek back to Panguitch.
Pansaugunt ATV Trail
Over 25-30 miles of untamed wilderness provide ATVers an open canvas desert exploration. Located in the Powell Ranger District in the National Park, the Pansaugunt ATV trail is known for its epic red rock vistas that stretch across the Dixie National Forest.
Fremont ATV Trail
Wind your way through the dusty trails of Fremont and explore the dense, shady desert forest while wandering through earth’s red rock creations, high plateaus, and memorable western vistas. Quiet and brimming with rare wildlife, this trail is sure to give travelers the perfect exploration in desert seclusion.
Pine Lake OHV Trail
Making a 10,000 feet loop from Pine Lake to Powell Point and around to Pole Canyon and back, is Pine Lake OHV Trail. Filled with the back road’s essence of Utah’s canyonlands, this is one of the great ATV trails you’ll find in Bryce Canyon Country.
Exploring Bryce Canyon’s off-road secrets gives you a chance to inhale the dry desert aromas of pine and sagebrush and take in the endless empty skies and desert sunsets. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll spot a Peregrine Falcon, Rocky Mountain Elk, or Pronghorn which frequently cross through the forested plateau and deserted amphitheater.
Full of magically stunning views and located just 23 miles Northeast of Bryce Canyon National Park, Powell Point is a well-kept secret of Southern Utah. Perched at the southern tip of the Table Cliff Plateau, Powell Point is not your average scenic look-out; it’s a colossal scope of some of Southern Utah’s most famous wonders. From the Grand Staircase to the staggering Gray and White Cliffs, the view from Powell Point stenches across miles of desert before finally dropping off into the distance of the Grand Canyon’s mysteries. Viewed from far off, the point resembles the bow of an ocean liner braving through a thunderous sea.
Bryce ATV Rally
ATV lovers can choose to participate in Bryce Canyon’s annual ATV rally. Trails can be visited by guided tour or explored independently. The rally gives access to more than 2400 miles of ATV trails, including the famous Casto Canyon, ranked among the top ten most scenic trails in America. Hosted at the Triple C Arena in Panguitch, the ATV Rodeo and Poker Run are highlights of the Bryce ATV Rally, where visitors can enjoy food and entertainment for the whole family.
