Trail Description
About this trail
Tucked away in the sparsely populated northeast corner of Utah, 8 miles north of Vernal, is a hidden gem - the Red Fleet Resevoir singletrack network. The setting is awesome with red rocks, pale rocks, friendly dirt, stumpy juniper trees and sagebrush. The terrain is dry-land rolling hills and rocky outcrops. The trails are well designed and they have a certain magic, some excitement and awesome outlooks here and there.

The best way to ride them is to park at the first carpark, less than a mile off the highway. Head southwest down Jazz Chrome Molly. It starts out with half a mile of fast flowing down-sloping trail that will have you smiling right off. Follow it round, taking the left options when you come to forks. After a short pedal on Donkey Flats Road you take J-Boy (some nice slick rock and a few rock drops) which leads into Handsome Cabin Boy (climb a long exposed section to a spectacular flat-rock summit before beginning an intensely technical rocky descent... Wow - mini-Moab!) After some rolling dirt track you'll complete the loop back to the car park. This nine mile loop will see you round most of the network and all the best trails. You'll get lots of variety and a good workout.

The Red Fleet Resevoir trails are visitor friendly with lots of little maps and signs with trail names. You won't get lost - not for long anyway! The car parks are good and there's a toilet.

Review: The best trail in the Vernal area in my opinion. Some sections on J Boy are quite technical and are for advanced to experienced riders, but most of it is fine for anyone.

Review: This is an exceptionally good collection of mountain bike trails. The trails are technically rich and varied. You'll find fast flowing sections along with intensely technical sections. The setting is awesome.
