#16 - Fremont / Kimberly (Fremont Indian State Par

This full day, 40 mile ride will begin at the Fremont Indian State Park, 20 miles southwest of Richfield along 1-70, and requires that you trailer your own ATV to that point. From the trail head directly south of the museum the ride will proceed south up Dry Creek along the main Paiute #01 trail. In places this is a narrow, steep climb from sage brush flats through pinyon juniper and on to majestic pine forests at approx. 10,000 ft. Then you'll take trail #13 through the old Kimberly Ghost Town and down Mill Creek Canyon. The route will follow trail #15 across Fish Creek and Shingle Creek to the old Cove Fort Highway and a return loop back to the Park. Due to the steepness, narrowness, and numerous stream crossings which tend to challenge riders, this ride has been rated as "Intermediate+."

This is a great ride!  You get to see some of the early Utah mining history.  The guides were fantastic!   They are very experianced and knew the area well.  They were great help with some of the more technical places of the ride.  The ride is very scenic with spectacular vistas.  I'm really glad I took this ride and I'd recommend it to anyone (you'd better be a good intermediate rider as there are some challenges).
