The Rojo mountain bike trail is an advanced technical flow trail on Bureau of Land Management public lands near Vernal, Utah. With deep craters, large drops, and technical turns, climbs and moves, it is not for the faint of heart. Also carrying the name “Carnage” by locals, the Vernal Field Office recommends hiking the trail before you ride it, or riding with an experienced local rider. As one of our most challenging trails, take first aid supplies and a lot of water as summer riding in Vernal can be hot and unforgiving!
