Dry Lake Wash

The Dry Lake Wash OHV Trail is a 60-mile, all-day ride in the desert. We spent six hours on the trail at an average speed of 10 mph. Riding consists of graded county roads, sand, and some areas of rocky two-track. Watch our videos from this trail for a closer glimpse of what you will find before you plan your trip.

You can base your trip right outside of Green River, right off interstate 70. Green River has options for lodging, restaurants and fuel. This is a great area to ride with access to hundreds of miles of trails and otherworldy desert scenery that makes up the San Rafael Desert.

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.

We unloaded just outside of town but you can ride from the hotel to your trailhead if you are street legal. Riding along the first loop in the trail will take you to an overlook of the Green River. This segment we would consider an intermediate segment because of the rough terrain. There is some braiding of the trail taking place through here which is why we recommend using GPS on this particular route. Turn ight to head West back tor the main County Road 1010 you came in on. If you turn left you will be heading toward Crystal Geyser (but it will be on the opposite side of the Green River). Make a hard left turn to continue on south. There will be a sign pointing to the route you were just on for Crystal Geyser. Pretty smooth sailing for a ways on County Road 1010. Watch for oncoming traffic and resist the urge to go too fast. Stay on County Road 1010 heading south. You will cross a cattle guard heading south as you enter the badlands. Head east following the sign for Fossil Point. You can head north to go check out the Green River or continue on the loop by heading south. Continuing on north from the last intersection will take you right to the Green River. Another opportunity for an overlook on the Green River lies to the east. Turn left to head south at the intersection. Another geyser or water feature out in the middle of nowhere. Turn right to head northwest. You are back on County Road 1010, this is your quickest way back to town.
