Mountain Bike the Jazz-Chromolly Trail!

Jazz-Chromolly Highlights Video

The Jazz-Chromolly Trail in Vernal, Utah, is a first-class bike trail. As part of the Red Fleet Trails complex, Jazz-Chromolly combines flowing, winding segments with technical sections and challenging climbs. It crosses desert sands, slick rock and offers panoramic views of Red Fleet Reservoir, the Brush Creek Drainage and the Battleships formations, which give the Red Fleet Trails Complex its name.

Visit a Uinta Basin Oasis at the Pariette Wetlands!

Surrounded by vast miles of harsh, arid desert, the Pariette Wetlands provide a green, marshy home for wildlife trying to survive in the desert lands of Utah. The wetlands are made up of a perennial stream and 25 man-made ponds developed in 1972 to improve waterfowl production and provide seasonal habitat for other species. Be sure to bring your binoculars when visiting to spot bald eagles, whooping cranes, ring-necked pheasants, herons, and peregrine falcons.
