BLM Utah Mountain Biking Opportunities: Red Fleet and McCoy Flats Trail Systems

The Red Fleet and McCoy Flats trail systems offer some of the best single track mountain biking opportunities in the state of Utah. When combined, these systems provide approximately 60 miles of mountain biking trails. With a stacked looped system, you can combine different trails to add some distance and challenge.

BLM managed lands throughout the Uinta Basin offer excellent mountain biking opportunities for riders of all skill levels. Riders can enjoy the many miles of unpaved roads or seek out more adventurous routes on the areas numerous singletrack trails. The Uinta Basin offers a unique variety of singletrack, from narrow desert trails in the Red Fleet and McCoy Flats areas, the forested and rocky Flume Trail in Dry Fork Canyon, or the technical challenge of the Rojo Trail.
