ATV Trails in Fillmore, Utah
With sweeping expanses of desert, majestic mountains, and gaping canyons, Utah offers outdoors enthusiasts a vast array of recreation opportunities. Among these offerings are some of the country's best ATV trails. From easy trails for novice riders to extreme trails suitable for adrenaline junkies, Utah's offroad trails have something for everyone.

Fillmore, Utah is located in the center of the state and is surrounded by mountains, state forests and wildlife areas. While most park lands are generally restricted to only non-motorized traffic, there are many designated ATV trails in the areas surrounding and adjacent to the parks. These trails boast incredible scenery as they wind through some of the country's most remote wilderness.

Cinders ATV Trail

The Cinders is a dedicated ATV trail located just outside of Fillmore. The trail has multiple arms ranging from easy to very difficult. The easy portions of the trail are flat and wide enough for passing with a gravel surface. The more difficult parts of the trail have steep grades and loose gravel or dirt surfaces that may at times be muddy. The most difficult areas may have debris or other obstacles in the path, rock ledges and overhangs, switchbacks and sharp, sudden turns.

The trailhead is just off I-15 at the Meadow exit.

Paiute ATV Trail

The Paiute ATV Trail is one of Utah's premier ATV trails. The 275-mile loop trail shares some of its length with the famed Great Western Trail, which cuts a north-south path through the state. Much of the trail is comprised of old roads running through Fishlake National Forest, with well over 1,000 miles of marked and unmarked side trails for endless exploration.

Because of the massive size of the Paiute ATV Trail, it is best to explore it in sections. While the main trail can be ridden in just over a day, it is best to allow three to four days to travel the trail in order to fully enjoy the natural surroundings.

Many small towns along I-15 have access points to the trail, including Marysvale, Richfield, Beaver, Fillmore and Salina.
