Best riding area for a long week

I've seen this topic before and have searched for it without success. I'm starting to plan the next big trip and looking for some input. We're from Indiana and take a 10 day riding vacation. The last 2 were to Moab and looking for a new destination. Looking for a campground to ride out of with 7 or 8 days of great riding and some tourist activities as well. We take long weekend trips throughout the year to Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia and Michigan and looking for something within a 20 hour drive. We've been to Taylor Park and Maine both are trips everyone should make at least once.
What's out there to wow us like Moab? Is South Dakota worth the 17 hour drive? We have a place to stay near Wawa Canada if that is a good place to go?

Re: Best riding area for a long week

I am posting to find out the same issue. I live in central MN and we have not much here. Way up north is a great weekend park near the iron range.

SW Utah/Mesquite but not mid-summer. Sand Hollow. Ruby Ranch/Bryce Canyon NP perimeter.

Utah state trail map site https://stateparks.utah.gov/activiti...-publications/

US Forest Service MVUM (Motor Vehicle Use Maps) for Northern Utah https://www.fs.usda.gov/main/uwcnf/maps-pubs

BLM maps for Southern Utah

Idaho. There is a flat-out shitload of trails in Idaho. https://trails.idaho.gov/

@FJK can recommend some Arizona/New Mexico trails, but again not in mid-summer.

Yes Idaho is a great state. I live in East Idaho and definitely feel blessed to do so. I can't really say any specific area that I would ride for a week without trailering. St. Anthony is AWESOME if you like sand.(worth a day even if you dont. Tallest dunes in the U.S..) Spencer Area on Montana boarder is great mountain trails, some are 50" only but most my
XPT can't tell the difference. Lol
I would also recommend seeing Island Park and West Yellowstone area.We pull doubles so when we get to an area we can bounce around and not have to move camp.
Feel free to PM me if you want some specifics of the area.

Check out the Buena Vista, CO area. Lots of options. Hiking, hot springs, etc as well as fantastic trail riding.

Re: Best riding area for a long week

South Fork, Colorado has camp grounds you can ride out of. Lots of fishing, ohv trails, hiking, and big mountains. They also provide a great trail map that is accurate for free at there welcome center. Stay directly in center of town gets you close to trail heads. Town is small and they donít get angry if you drive down the side of the road to get places.

Re: Best riding area for a long week

Idaho is one of the most beautiful states and street legal fro sxs's. Then Arizona, or New Mexico. Check out Rally In The Pines facebook to get some ideas? South Dakota would get boring after a few days, it's a mix of a lot of road riding to get anywhere with "trails".

Lake City, CO if you're into the mountain scenery. Cool mountain town. UTV friendly. It's like riding through the Rocky Mountain National Park. Check out the Alpine Loop. Ride over to Silverton. Pretty epic. We rent a cabin on a nearby lake. Lots of Polaris activity.

Re: Best riding area for a long week

It's not as epic as the Rockies, but there is some nice riding in N.W. Arkansas.Tons of National Forest areas. Google Mulberry Mountain or search for "Mid-South UTV Trail Riders" on Facebook

Re: Best riding area for a long week

You guys recommending Colorado, they haven't dug out from this past winter's snow. Don't plan riding there much this year.

Re: Best riding area for a long week

If you like to look at Deep creek UT. beautiful riding trails and you can get to bryce canyon by trails there. It would be 100 mile round trip. but worth it.

Re: Best riding area for a long week

Depending on the time of year........Arizona Strip / North Rim
But, one needs to self sufficient. Very easy to get in ďover ones headĒ!
Have an emergency locator, lots of fuel, be ready to camp on the trail, spare parts, plenty of fresh water, and the list goes on. Any given loop is likely to be 100+ miles, and can easily stretch out to 200-300 miles before one gets back to their camp. There are no services, no cell service and very sparsely populated!
It is the most remote area in the lower 48; and it is huge. It would be your adventure of a lifetime.
Good luck.
