The Cricket Mountains OHV trails are located in Millard County Utah and several Trailheads with good parking areas located on Utah Hwy 257 between Delta Utah and Milford Utah. There are approximately 120 miles of trails and gravel roads in this trail system. There are four trailheads at mile markers 23, 28, 29 and 53 in Hwy 257. We chose the southernmost end at mile marker 23. Be aware that the other trailheads do not seem well suited to large vehicles like 5th wheel toy haulers due to limited space to turn around or park off of the road. You may encounter a few sheep and their herders but few people. This is a great place to get away and enjoy some solitude while exploring a seldom seen part of Utah.

Would you like to see the Cricket Mountains Trail in an animated 3D flyover map? If it appears to pause that is likely a place I stopped for a while. It will continue, just wait a few moments.
Here is the 360 view at the trailhead. Feel Free to tour around a bit inside Google Stree Views. We have recorded the entire trail in 360 and it is now part of Google Street Views so you can take a virtual tour of the entire trail. We’ve made it a bit easier to navigate, scroll down and you will see more 360 embedded tours as we encounter intersections, trail markers or interesting places along the trail.
You can move the image 360 degrees, click the arrow to move further down the trail and zoom in and out to take a closer look. Clicking the box in the upper right-hand corner will enlarge to full screen for a better view.
We’ll just cruise down the trail a bit…..
This intersection is essentially the Trail Head you would access via Mile Marker 28 on Hwy 257.
