Marysvale to Otter Creek

Marysvale to Otter Creek OHV Trail is a dynamic and scenic ride just about half an hour south of Richfield. Marysvale is the perfect launching point for a fantastic ride with gas, food and supplies all available at your fingertips. Please stay on established roads and marked trails. Below you will find map resources and some suggestions for riding in this area.

Our ride took about 2.5 hours at 16 mph covering a distance of 37 miles. Riding starts off with a paved road and then consists of mostly graded county roads, and has terrain virtually any machine could handle but can still be a fun challenge.

The ride starts out at Lizzie and Charlie’s RV / ATV Park, which is a wonderful starting point with excellent service for your offroading needs.

Be sure to pack ponchos as the mountainous section of the ride tends to rain during the summer. The Otter Creek Reservoir has great fishing so be sure to stock up on gear at the Sinclair convenience store before you depart.
