Marysvale Maze

The Marysvale Maze OHV trail will take you on a number of different routes depending on the route you take. There are three different loops that can be taken. Because there are so many forks on the route we took and the terrain looks similar, you will really want to download the GPX file before heading out. 

Depending on the route you can visit the Antelope Range with great vistas or visit the old VCA or Prospector mines. We hope this will give you a good preview of a solid ride for beginner to intermediate riders.

Basing out of Marysvale allows for close access to the trailhead to get an early start on the trail without a lot of additional travel.

We spent 4.5 hours riding the trail for 40 miles at approximately 8 mph. You will want to plan on a long day out to allow for plenty of time for getting back.

We rode the trail as an out and back and these numbers are based on taking the full loop. You can shorten the trip by turning on Flat Top Road can cut the trip approximately in half or cutting over the Antelope Range using the VCA Mine Rd and doing 3/4 of the loop.
