The Scofield – Tucker OHV Trail is a 38-mile loop in Central Utah that begins at the northwest end of Scofield State Park. Our ride took just over four hours at 7 mph. The trail is good for beginners in terms of terrain and short enough to bring the family along for the ride as there are some stops for fishing and short explorations for wildlife spotting. It is a easy half-day rideon a series of graded roads. Though the terrain is easy, there are quite a few areas of private property to avoid so please pay attention to signage.

Would you like to see the trail in an animated 3D flyover map?  If it appears to pause that is likely a place we 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. While we didn’t have time to ride all of the trail we think you will find this fairly representative of what you will find. 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 found a good place to unload off the side of Dry Valley Road. This will tie you into the Castle Country Trail System Route 12 heading north. Please note that you will want to plan on heading to this point through Scofield from the south end of the reservoir. *Google initially gave us a route through private property locked by gate that came in through the park on the north end which won’t work.


Continue around the bend to the left. *There’s a lot of private property in this area. Please be respectful of the trail and surrounding private property.


Continue on slightly right heading northwest.


This small bridge had a 2,000 lbs weight limit so no full-sized vehicles through here.


Here is another way you can access the trail from Highway 6.


Turn right at this inersection to head south. Many of the spurs off this trail lead to private property behind locked gates.


We took the road down these switchbacks to circle back where we started from.


This is where the trail meets the blacktop in Bear Canyon to make a nice little loop.
