    I really enjoyed the Wilkins Peak trails. The system is the right size for a robust weekend of riding. The trails are well-groomed with several technical features within. The downhills are fast and flowy with drops and bridges. I'm definitely heading back for another weekend of flow.

    Great trail system! Miles of trails with a range of difficulty. Something for everyone. A must ride.

    I seem to have had a different reaction to this trail system than most. Lots of great features, but a lot of slogging around between them as well. The fun ban for effort buck factor could be higher. The land is also the most barren and desolate looking I've ever ridden--like the most remote trails outside Moab, but without the color or scenery. There are many important intersections which are not marked. I suspect it may take multiple rides or a tour by a local to be able to get the most out of this trail system.

    High desert riding at its finest! It's got it all: Challenging climbs, drops, natural berms, and nice flowing single track. Mix up alternate routes with other SWMBA/Wilkins Peak trails to get a different ride every time. This scenic area will keep you busy on a bike while providing nice views of the Green River and the high desert landscape. Easy to get to from I-80. Come check it out for yourself!

    As the name implies; explosivo! This is a trail you must try if you are in the area. Plan your ride to do this segment downhill (vs. uphill) to get the full fun factor.

    Very fun little detour on Brent & Mikes with an option to link with another trail. Very technical climbing section that is fun to try and clear.

    Fast Fast Fast! It is a blast to challenge your riding buddies to see who can do this section fastest. Great way to finish up a big ride. Do a test run before you try it all out!

    This is how I get up the hill to access other trails. It definitely wakes up the legs and gets me warmed up. You can ride it downhill, but I usually opt for Fast Exit when it's time to head down the hill.

    *****

    One of my all time favorite trails! Natural features, bridges challenging climbs, drops, natural berms, and nice flowing single track. There is one gnarly short climb in the same area as the 'Pansey' alternate trail. It's an awesome super technical climb. Very fun downhill section about a mile in on PYP, with drops and rolls and drainage crossings on bridges. Mix up alternate routes with other SWMBA/Wilkins Peak trails to get a different ride every time.

    Just amazing trail here. Only gets 4 stars because 5 is a Sedona or Moab. Thanks to all the trail builders and thanks to Andy for showing me the trail.

    Fire road up singletrack down = great combination!
    Like the rest of the Wilkins System, it's hope desert with little to no shade and this is one of the longer/farther out trails so you can feel pretty isolated.

    This trail system is awesome! A must-ride if you're in the area. I highly recommend hitting Pick Your Poison, an absolute treat!

    Overall, the trails are rock/desert, well marked, and pretty flowy. Be careful coming down Draino I kicked the rear sideways and cut my sidewall on some shale. Even with that mishap, the system rocked!

    First time out had a blast this is my favorite trail very smooth and a lot of great built jumps and drops. I would recommend this trail to more experienced ridders but it is over all a great trail!!

    If you like going fast and ridin' on the edge, then don't miss goin' south on this one! Or you can get off of Quickdraw to this trail for a nice pedal to the top if that's what turns your tires.

    This is an avoidance trail on Pick Your Poison to miss some of the more challenging but fun sections on PYP. Good for those people who want to just keep cruising the trail.

    What a great loop with lots of variety when connected with other trails. I prefer to ride it counterclockwise, but a clockwise route offers an array of differing characteristics worth experiencing as well. Well thought out and well made.
