Pictures of our ATV Trail

A few friends and I have been building an ATV trail on private land. Thus far we have spent five years on this trail, with essentially the whole trail having been built by hand with a pick, shovel, and chainsaw. And the land owner did rent a mini track hoe for a week to cut in a section of switchbacks. The trail has grown to 15 miles in length at this point, and climbs up and over the first two mountain ridges of a 10,000 foot high mountain range. We have another two miles to go, and will then be able to connect into an entirely different ATV trail system, with access to literally thousands of miles of ATV trails. Most of the work has been done by my two friends who own Rincons, and I have helped when I can with my Grizzly. This has been great fun, and a challenging project. I thought I would post some pictures of our trail, that is in the mountains right behind the house, here in southern Utah.

If anyone is coming this way and wants to go on a challenging and fun trail ride in the mountains then send me a PM. This trail is challenging though, and there have been numerous rollovers through the years (but no injuries). This is a very fun trail for a rider with mountain trail experience.

As of today our trail system has been completed. The additional two miles I talked about in my post from last year ended up being an additional ten miles. But the trails have been connected, and this trail can now be ridden as a 25 mile long loop, and connects to other state maintained trail systems along the way.

Today was the first time I have taken the Renegade 800 on this technically difficult of a trail, and I surprised myself. The Renegade did better than the Grizzly 700 pretty much everywhere. The only thing it needs to make it work better in all the rocks is either a steering stabilizer, or better yet, power steering. Maybe I was a bit too harsh on my criticism of the price increase on the 2010 Renegade X xc with power steering.

If any forum members are coming to southern Utah and want to ride a fun challenging trail send me a PM. The trail is 25 miles long and would take between five and eight hours to complete, depending on the pace.
