Kimberly Cover

The trail from Joseph to Fremont State Park is one of many side trails of the Paiute ATV Trail System. The Flying U Country Store made a great place for us to setup base camp. They have fuel, food and camping accommodations that aren’t as busy as some of the other nearby towns.

Fremont State Park is only 10 miles away and has a number of activities to enjoy including the trail we rode today that took us to the old mining town of Kimberly before continuing on down to Marysvale. Use the information below to plan your trip on this 60-mile route that we covered in five hours. We would recommend planning an entire day to include time to explore all of the points of interest along the way.

Would you like to see the 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. Link to 3D flyover.

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. 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.

On any image, you can click the ‘X’ in the upper right corner and the view will change to an overview map showing the Google Street View blue lines. You can click anywhere on that blue line and drop down to the 360 ground-level views at that point.

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.

You can run this loop from several different strating points including Marysvale, Fremont State Park and Joseph. We fueled up in Joseph before heading to Fremont State Park and unloading at Rendezvouz Flat. Follow the instructions for day use and camping fees. There is access to 50" riding here; otherwise follow PST 13 (Max Reid Trail Sign). Follow the road south where it will transition into gravel continuing on the west side of I-70. Continue riding south following the sign for Kimberly. Spring or fall this is an amazing ride. Winkler Point (9869 ft.), named in honor of Ernest Winkler. 50" Access to the Max Reid Trail 1. We continued on Paiute Side Trail (PST) 13. The Silver King Mine offers a historical stop complete with pit toilet and a parking area nearby. An example of some of the riding at elevation with trees off to either side of the road. Continue on south to Marysvale. *The Deer Creek Trail continues on down the mountain to Highway 89 near the Big Rock Candy Mountain. Once you reach Marysvale, you will drive through town and connect with PST 2 to head back toward Joseph. This particular loop offers several different options from which you can base your adventure. Look for our post based from Marysvale for another option for this trail. The road forks in three directions here. Stay on the center route heading north this will be PST 24. Stay to the left on Iron Cap Road (PST 22). Stay right to keep on PST 22. Continue on north following the sign for PST 22. The contrast between the mountain roads and the flat of the desert offers a variety of scenary and an escape from the heat in the summer. Stay right on PST 22 heading northeast. Turn right at the fork to stay on PST 22 (Ross Lane). Follow Ross Lane. This is the end of PST 22 and ties into PST 10. From here you can continue on back to Joseph by heading north.
