The Stud Horse Draw OHV Loop is a good ride for beginners that lies off the beaten path. The trailhead is 15 miles or so west of Enterprise and offers some unique scenery, riding and a trip back to the Old West. The 50-mile trip took us about 4.5 hours to complete with an average moving speed of 11.5 mph.

Terrain consists of mostly dirt and gravel roads that take off across the flats for some high desert riding. Picnic tables and ponderosa pines make the stop at pine park a good place to have a picnic and take in something different than the junipers and sagebrush.

Enterprise makes a great base-camp offering a small motel, groceries, fuel and a couple eateries. Nearby Enterprise Reservoir and the surrounding area offer great opportunities for camping.

This is a popular ride during the Tristate ATV Jamboree that typically takes place in March. You can find out more about this event and find some great people to ride with by visiting https://www.thetristateatvclub.com/

Head west on the only road through town. This parking area is just off the main road a short ways after the pavement ends (Crestline Rd.).. You will head back east on the road you came in on (Crestline Road) Turn left to head north on Forest Road 877. This segment of the trail is easy riding on gravel roads with a couple crossings through wash bottoms. Riding up this wash will take you to Nephi Spring. This spur took us to a dead end up in the junipers. Turn right to head north here onto Forest Road 1014 (the 4 is the only legible number on the sign currently). Continue on the same route heading west (1014). Turn right after the cattleguard following the fenceline north. Follow the road straight to continue heading west. This stretch is relatively flat riding through the junipers and sagebrush as you go around Panaca Ridge. You'll ride back down Crestline Road again until you come to this turnoff to head onto Forest Road 1007. You'll find a change of scenary among the ponderosa pines and white rocks at the Pine Park Campground. This ride has a lot of high desert riding off the beaten path with open space strectching out in every direction. It really is a trip back to the Old West.
