#45 - Soaring with the Eagles (Hoover's Rest Area)

We will begin this ride at Hoover's Rest Area, across Highway 89 from Hoover's Caf, 20 miles south of Richfield. You will need to trailer your own ATV to that location. This ride will take you up beautiful Deer Creek Canyon to the main Paiute trail, then on to the summit where the trail crosses the Tushars at 11,500 feet. This is well above timberline and is the highest point on the Paiute Trail. Hopefully we'll see some mountain goats, elk, deer, and other wildlife so bring your camera along. After crossing the divide we'll continue to the Elk Meadow Ski & Summer Resort and around beautiful Puffer Lake. The return trip will take you down Beaver Creek to Marysvale and north along the Sevier River back to Hoover's Rest Area. Riders will need to bring their lunch and extra gasoline. Because of the length and some challenging trails, this ride is rated as "Advanced."
