Heber Valley Trails: On the Edge of Adventure

The Heber Valley, known for its famous "Heber Creeper" historic railroad and some of the best milkshakes around, boasts a world-class trail system featuring hundreds of miles of pristine off-highway vehicle routes.

Heber Valley offers a vast trail system that encounters all types of terrain with ample variety for all rider skill levels. This mountain town is situated along the majestic Rocky Mountain region with rigid peaks and an abundance of trails to explore and play.

What makes the trail system so great is the beautiful scenery, cooler mountain temperatures, and convenient access to miles of adventure. But the proverbial "icing on the cake" for UTV enthusiasts is the quality of outfitters and trail experts that make their home — and your experience — even more enjoyable in Heber Valley. By providing you with unparalleled access to top-of-the-line machinery, current trail maps and conditions, expert guides, and the best-kept-secrets to maximizing your ride in Heber Valley!

Strawberry Valley: A short 25-minute drive southeast from Heber City, lies the sweeping floor of Strawberry Valley. With the fifth largest reservoir in the state - Strawberry Reservoir - this area has a number of streams, inlets, and watershed areas, as well as ample water recreation at the lake. The acreage surrounding the reservoir provides excellent access to trails for multiple types of users. Please be aware that you may encounter other users on the trails, so heed caution in popular areas and use correct right-of-way when passing others on the trails. Much of this area is located inside the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest Service, so a day-use fee is required if you stop at any point in the forest service boundary.

Wolf Creek Highway: A portion of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest area is accessed along Hwy-35 from Francis and Woodland east to Duchesne. About 15 miles east on Hwy-35 is the Mill Hollow Road (FR054) connection and turnoff. This route will take you past Mill Hollow Reservoir and the surrounding area popular for both camping and day-use.

Another five miles up Hwy-35 is Duchesne Ridge Road (trail 091) which offers another great OHV access point and Wolf Creek Campground.

Important Tips & Information

  • Be sure to download trail maps! Cellular reception is spotty at best in most of these destinations. Having an area map downloaded with your GPS coordinates plugged in can save you from getting lost or on the wrong trail when you are in the backcountry.
  • Pack water and snacks. There won't be any services or convenience stores in most of these areas. Having ample water and snacks on hand is highly recommended.
  • Take sunblock and bug spray. Be sure to take these with you and apply often. These higher elevations means you can burn faster. And mosquitoes thrive in many of these locations, particularly near water sources.
  • Fuel up. Be sure to have a full tank before you head out. And if you can, pack extra fuel for your OHV. With hundreds of miles of connected trails and no cell service, you want to play all day and not get stranded in the remote wilderness areas.
  • Tell a friend. As a good practice, share your approximate destination with a friend or family member not traveling with you. Let them know when you head out and be sure to let them know when you return. It's a good idea in case something happens and you need help - someone will know your rough whereabouts.
