The Conger Mountain OHV Trail is 60 miles southwest of the town of Delta. This is Utah’s West Desert with vast landscapes that unfold for as far as the eye can see. Notch Peak and the Sawtooth Mountains rise to an elevation of 9,300 feet to the east and the Snake Valley stretches out to the Nevada border to the west. The trail rides north out around the Conger Mountain Wilderness Study Area and back to Highway 6. We spent four hours riding the trail at 12 mph and a distance of 66 miles.

Plan on a full day for your ride to include time to get to the trailhead from Delta. The town of Delta is a great basecamp where you will find lodging, restaurants, fuel and groceries. This area of the state has incredible night skies so make plans for some stargazing and spend a night or two.

Here is the 360 view at the trailhead. Feel free to tour around a bit inside Google Street Views. We have recorded the trail in 360 and it is now part of Google Street Views so you can take a virtual tour of the trail to see if it is for you.

The trailhead is right off Highway 6 keep an eye out for the sign and the road right off the highway. There is a gate you will have to open to access the trail please leave it as you found it. We pulled through the gate an unloaded just past the sign. Pay attention to the grasses when you park with hot exhaust. Turn right heading north at this intersection. Continue on northward. Hang a left heading west. Two-track among cheatgrass and junipers. Make another left onto Route 8. Continue heading west. Turn right onto Route 5.
