Pinnacles edited

The Pinnacles OHV Trail is a loop that will take you around Enterprise Reservoir, up Park Canyon looking west toward Nevada, and then dropping down into the valley where you will ride past some impressive geologic features “The Pinnacles.”

The trail is approximately 45 miles and we rode it in 3.5 hours without any stops. Our average speed on the trail was about 10.5 mph and we gained 2,100 feet (6,700′ elevation) before dropping back down to 4,600 feet back in Veyo.

This trail can access several other trails in the area to make for a full day of riding or take your time and explore the area. There are numerous camping options in this area or you can find a motel in Enterprise with a greater variety of lodging options out of Cedar City or St. George.

An obvious perk of this particular trail is the ability to quickly escape civilization without being too far away. There are no services along the trail but you will find some pit toilets when you pass Enterprise Reservoir.

There is plenty of parking and a kiosk about the trail near the intersection of Veyo Shoal Creek Rd and Bench Road. The trail will take you northwest into the Dixie National Forest and some cooler temperatures. Stay to the right to continue north after the sign for the Bull Valley ATV trail. This is the beggining of the loop. We stayed to the right to head toward Enterprise Reservoir first. The reservoir is a popular destination during the summer and has camping. A reservation is highly recommended. The area is home to some interesting geologic formations. This area of the road climbs up so you can look out across the valley. There's a lot to take in. Continue on to the right to continue on north. Off to the south side of the road is the Honeycomb Rock campground. This is one of the more unique campsites in Utah and not necessarily what you would expects to find. Looking out at Enterprise Reservoir. There is a pit toilet in this parking lot. Stay left on the road heading south. Turn left to head southeast down into the valley at the sign for this hiking trail. There are several Wilderness Areas nearby. At this point you've reached the main attraction, The Pinnacles. There's a couple cool rocks like this one for the kids to play on or to take a selfie. This spot could get interesting if it continues to wash out. Width-wise we got a Jeep through here (on the road) back in Spring 2021.
