The Patton Trail

Average Rating:    (3.75 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

From the parking lot return back to the main canyon road and continue ride up canyon. Mileage is as follows from the Patton Trail Parking Lot. 2.9 miles - Yearns Resivor (o.k. fishing for planters); 3.6 miles - Lowry Fork, stay to the right; 5.9 miles - turn right onto Burnt Hill Road, USGS road #193; you will climb through a meadow and roll along through aspens, at 6.5 miles the road splits - hang a right. The road descends for a couple hundred yard before spliting again - this time hang left. At 7.8 miles Pole Haven Road splits off to the right (you stay left even though this is a bombing dual track). At 8.2 miles you will hit a S-Turn in the road in a small meadow and begin a 1/4 mile climb. At 9.1 miles you will cross a small stream, turn right (continue straight - the main road goes left up a climb) onto the Patton Trail USGS Marker #120 (NOTE: This is sometimes overgrown with grass in the spring and easy to miss when you are cranking at 35-40 mph). At 11.1 miles you return to the Patton Trail Parking Lot.

Summary:
I remember riding that once on a Sunday afternoon when I was supposed to be in church. I didn't have a car and spent all my lifetime savings on a mountain bike. So I rode all the way to Manti from Ephraim to get there, it was beautiful ride, and on a Sunday, it was not crowded either. I didn't really want to ride there because I hate Manti so bad and rather ride in Ephraim. I hated Manti High School so bad and it really sucked, and Manti people are just a bunch of morons. I went up the road to get to Yearns and went on the trail, it was fun and it was mostly fourwheeler trail. Good downhill though, I had a good time but I rather ride at the trails at home. The ones in Ephraim Canyon were better, they were real mountain bike trails, all singletrack built by Skyline Cycles. Flume Trail and Pioneer Trail. They are a lot funner, all singletrack, so no God damn ATVs or sheepherders in your way. I hate atv riders, my hearing is going away because they have to be so loud. I wish there were more bikers instead of atv riders.

Recommended Route:
Go up to Yearns and take the trail down, you could get lost easily but just keep going down, that's easier.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Flume Trail and Pioneer Trail, built by mountain bikers. About 8 miles long. Pure singletrack designed only for mountain bikes. In Ephraim Canyon. Skyline Drive for some scenic riding is pretty fun too.

Summary:
I remember riding that once and it's mostly fourwheeler trail, the downhill was fun. I kind of got lost but all you have to do is keep taking the trail that goes down. It was pretty but no singletrack, so I got disappointed. I liked the location and Downhill riding though. If you want some real singletrack, there are two of them built by the owners of Skyline Cyles in Ephraim during 1996, it's called the Flume Trail and another one called Pioneer Trail in Ephraim Canyon. The Flume Trail is a lot better, it is designed only for mountainbikes, lots of turns and twists, all pure solid singletrack for 7 miles. It is listed in the mtbreview, Go to: Flume Trail(Ephraim).

Recommended Route:
Start going up Manti Canyon and past Yearns and take the trails that are listed.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Flume Trail and Pioneer Trail for fun singletrack riding only for mountain bikers, no fourwheelers or sheepherders.

Summary:
This trail is a great evening ride if you like being alone and seeing wildlife. You will cross through several riparian zones and see a variety of wildlife. This trail is combo of a passenger car drivable road on the way up and a bombing dual track and single track descent.

Recommended Route:
The instructions for this ride are pretty damn confusing with all the forest service road #'s. Just go ride and explore. In Manti Canyon all of the trails eventually lead to the valley if you are riding downhill.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
From Fairview to I-70 there are hundreds of miles of trails and dual tracks on both the east side and west side of the range. My favorite is riding the lenght of Skyline Drive from the top of Fairview Canyon down to I-70. This ride isnt techincal, but it is a beutiful tour.

Summary:
Trail is rideable June through October. In early spring the first stream crossing can be knee deep. Its a pretty good burn up to Burnt Hollow but well worth the Bombing Downhill through aspen,pine,and massive elk heards (usually seen early morning and dusk). The last two miles is a screamer ATV single track with great bermed corners and couple good rock/root drops. This is a great trail if you are just passing through. It only takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours to complete.

Recommended Route:
Follow the canyon road (passenger car drivable to Burnt Hollow for woos boys). Then burn down the Dual Track/Singletrack back to your car.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
PETES Hole, TRI-Canyon Loop, The Pinchot Trail (12 Mile Canyon, Epharaim to Manti via Willow Creek Road and Lowry Fork (watch out for the 5 foot drop into a sink hole on the abandoned jeep road out of Lowry Fork).
