What Happens in Sevier County, You Can Share with Your Friends!
Sevier County is located in the heart of central Utah and may very well be Utah’s “best kept recreational secret”. With over 1,000 miles of trail through nearly a million acres of public land, the Paiute Trail system allows visitors to get on an ATV, motorcycle or mountain bike and ride through beautiful red rock canyons or aspen forests for as far as the eye can see.
The Paiute Trail traverses three different mountain ranges climbing to points over 11,000 feet in elevation. And, no matter what your skill level, the Paiute has something for you to enjoy. Finally, don’t forget the annual Rocky Mountain ATV Jamboree held each September in Richfield, Utah – a great way to get to meet new friends and enjoy central Utah’s trail systems!
For those interested in Native American history, the Fremont Indian State Park is sure to pique your interest with artifacts, petroglyphs and pictographs that date back hundreds, and sometimes thousands of years. Spend some time at the museum or better yet, hike through the park and see the amazing historical evidence left behind by the Fremont people. Don’t forget to ask about the “alien” petroglyph just behind the museum.
When visiting central Utah, don’t miss Fish Lake. Nestled in the mountains, Fish Lake is a natural lake that provides some of the best fishing around. Rainbow, Brown and Mackinaw trout are plentiful in the lake. After a day on the lake, enjoy a good meal at one of the restaurants along the banks, hike the shore line trail, or drive the Fish Lake Scenic Byway – a path that in the early 1800′s was known as the Fish Lake cutoff of the Old Spanish Trail.
For the more adventurous at heart, be sure to stop by Big Rock Candy Mountain. Run the river in a raft of kayak, enjoy rock climbing or event take a ride on the new zip line. Also, don’t forget the Candy Mountain Express bike trail that runs through along the Sevier River.
