Salina-to-Richfield-Cover-1024x576-2

The connection between communities and trails is one of the unique aspects of riding in Utah. There are trails that will take you across the entire state but for those who are looking for a great ride that doesn’t take multiple days, this route from Salina to Richfield may be for you.

This trail is a 90-mile loop that connects the community of Salina with Richfield that will take you into the Pavant Range west of town back into the valley along I-70 back to Salina. This trip can be completed in a day or combine it with some other attractions in the area and make a weekend out of it. Salina and Richfield both have lodging, restaurants and stores available for everything you need. The trail is close to town but takes off onto the mountain for a great escape without leaving civilization too far behind.

The Rocky Mountain ATV/UTV Jamboree bases out of Richfield if you are looking for more riding in the area or want to make some new friends on the trail. The annual event takes place in September. More Info.
