ATV Rider Overlooking Trail Country


Big Rock Candy Mountain

One word describes the fishing in Trail Country - Trout!  From the Rainbow, Splake and Mackinaw that swim the cold clear waters of Fish Lake to the Tigers that make Johnson's Reservoir their home.  Popular places to wet a hook include Sevenmile, the Gooseberry lakes, Big Lake, Clear Creek and the Sevier River.




Located in the heart of central Utah, the Paiute Trail and other local systems include over 2,800 miles of OHV and ATV trails and roads.  The trail accesses numerous towns throughout the area, all of which have designated OHV friendly streets.  These streets allow riders to grab a bite to eat, gas up or head back to their hotel or RV after a ride...without having to trailer up.


The Gooseberry Trail system is located just east of Salina in mountains that hundreds of deer and elk call home.  The 250 miles that make up the Gooseberry system offer riders some of the best scenery in central Utah.  For those who enjoy wetting a hook, the Gooseberry offers a number of small lakes that hold trout.  If the fishing on one lake cools off, just head to the next.


Disperse camping sites for RVs or tents are plentiful while those who want to hook up to water and use a fire ring can stay in one of the Forest Service run campgrounds. Gooseberry Trail access is either from Salina on the north end of Sevier County or just off of exit 63 along Interstate 70.
