The Sanpitch OHV trail is located in Sanpete County, up Log Canyon just to the northwest outside of Fountain Green, Utah. The trail is approximately 25 miles long and took about 2.5 hours to run at an average speed of 7 mph. So plan about four hours for this trail to include some time for exploring and having lunch along the way.
The trail is quite scenic, climbing through aspen trees up on top with no major obstacles to enjoy a pleasant day of riding.
