Furthest you can ride from Maryvale?

What's the furthest you can ride from Maryvale? Can you ride to Moab? We're planning our first trip next year and curious how much riding is out there? Can you ride in towns for gas and fuel? Is fuel readily available? Is the map from gpsfiledepot the best one?

Re: Furthest you can ride from Maryvale?

Wow what a question on distance. I know you can get from Bryce Canyon to Panquitch and then up through Circleville, Junction and to Marysvale. From there you can go over different Mnts. to the east and west to different towns. You can go north to Monroe and Richfield. Looking at the Arapeen trail map I believe you can get from Richfield to Eiphrom and Manti on the Arapeen trail system. That would be a lot on Mnt. crossings and some Hwys, but I have never tried. They all have fuel. Should be able to get a hotel and have some nice camping opportunities. That would be some trip.

We're from Ohio and planning on making a 2 week trip out and really want to cover the most ground possible. What is the best trail map to get? I prefer a tablet or GPS. Are there different trail systems? I thought it was all considered the Paiute trail?

Where do you suggest getting a map? The one in gpsfiledepot doesn't look like it has all the trails on it.

Re: Furthest you can ride from Maryvale?

You can get a Paiute trail map online or wait until you get where you are going. Most everyone has them.

I use the Scenic Map app on my Ipad. It has everything I want and then some. Easier to use than a GPS, bigger screen, sets your waypoints are fast and easy and at the end of the day I still have an Ipad to do all my other things and not just a GPS still sitting idle in the Razor and it records all my rides to view later. I see no need to go back to a GPS.
The paper maps are very good too and have all the trails. Scenic Map app is for the entire west US.

The Arapeen trail system just north of Marysvale about 75 miles is another good area.

There is also a forest service map that has a lot of the trails that don't show up on the Paiute maps and it shows where there are 50" gates.

I downloaded scenic map but can't decipher what are trails and what are roads.

Re: Furthest you can ride from Maryvale?

Zoom in more and more detail shows up. You can go into settings and pick all the detail you want or don't want and the size of the print.

Call me if you have any problems.
520-349-7056

The one thing it won't show is which one is a 50" trail, but there are so few they are easily decerned. I just did 1K+ miles in Marysvale and that's all we used.

Trails and roads look different.

Re: Furthest you can ride from Maryvale?

Brad:
Go to ATVUtah.com you can order maps, books and other information there. With amount of trails there you will just touch them in 2 weeks. There several trail systems in Utah, the main one is the Paiute ATV Trail, Marysvale is located pretty much in the center of it. There is access to several other trail systems from there, some you will need to trailer to, most of them you won't. To answer your question "What is the furthest you can ride from Marysvale?" I would respond "How much time and how much fuel do you have, yes you can ride into towns for fuel, food and lodging." Marysvale to Moab by highway is around 200 miles, so you can add several miles to that for an "off road" trip.

Great info. Thank you! We were looking at packing our clothes and stuff in the rzr and riding to different towns to sleep, over several days.

Re: Furthest you can ride from Maryvale?

There are plenty of trails that lead to towns and nice camp areas along that trail system. According to my Scenic Map app on my Ipad you can ride for days to many places with the time. I know you could start in Kanab and go to places like Panguitch, Bryce Canyon, Circleville, Koosharem, Marysvale, Beaver, Monroe, Richfield and you can keep heading north. There is fuel in almost all towns.
I find paper maps a PITA any more and are harder to follow and sometimes pin your exact location down.
I just did 7 weeks and 2100 miles on the RZ. in Utah and Colorado and had never been to some of these places. All on my Ipad, all recorded and every ride whether it was 40 or 100 miles could be planned with waypoints in 5 minutes. Some trips didn't get planned and waypointed until we were on the trail. All info is on the map.

If you guys are going out like this on your own you may want to consider a Spot (PLB). My wife and I ride and fly alone most of the time and we use a Spot. It's a great safety measure and friends and family can see where you are and if you have an emergency then press the SOS button and get the Army and Marines on the way.


Here are two of our rides on Spot. It works for weeks on 3 AAA batteries and the new ones can send satellite text messages.

Re: Furthest you can ride from Maryvale?

Brad:
One thing I forgot to mention, A lot of the Paiute Trail 01 and the surrounding area is at or over 9500 ft. elevation with a high point of 11,000. Some of the trail system doesn't open due to snow until mid to late July depending on the weather patterns.
The new electronic maps are great, but I like to carry a printed map and compass also. The National Geographic maps are printed on plastic so they are waterproof and will stand up to use for a long time.
Most of the area as mentioned has dispersed camping meaning you can camp along the trail and don't need to find a campground.

Re: Furthest you can ride from Maryvale?

I was in Marysvale June 1-16th. All trails were open, but two. The one out to the west of South Forty Park. The gate is always locked until July 4 weekend for animal breeding, but it would be impassable due to snow anyway. Then Cottonwood to the SW was open up to the old ranger cabin. I made the last attempt at breaking through and got stuck. The snow was melting fast because of the temps so it was probably open within the next week. I made it up to Monroe Peak that week too. Crashed through some snow to do that too.
With all the heat all trails are open now and the gate is unlocked to the west.

I was also trying out my newer Tensor 30x14x10 tires.They were a big improvement over stock tires in the mud and snow. My friends all got stuck places with stock tires and we were able to get through without a lot of fanfare.

We're going back to Marysvale Sept. 14- Oct 1
