The Fremont ATV Trail travels through southwestern Utah’s Dixie National Forest, offering cool forested rides, red rock formations, abundant wildlife, and sweeping views from high plateaus. Vegetation varies with the terrain, ranging from sagebrush to ponderosa pine and aspens.
The Fremont ATV Trail travels over 65 miles between circleville and Tropic Reservoir, linking the Paiute ATV Trail in Circleville, and the Paunsaugunt Trail near Bryce Canyon. Access to the Bryce Canyon area and the Ruby’s Inn is a short, easy ride from the Fremont ATV Trail through Davis Hollow. Ruby’s Inn offers all services including gasoline, lodging, food and some mechanical repairs and services. ATV’s, OHV’s and UTV’s are not permitted in nearby Bryce Canyon National Park.
The northern end of the Fremont ATV trail starts in Circleville. The signed trailhead is located at 400 south and about 100 east.

The route will drop down at the bottom of Smith Canyon, head south, then will connect with Sanford Canyon and climb eastward again.
