The 350-mile Arapeen Off-Highway Vehicle Trail System is a gem of recreational riding opportunities; it includes Skyline Drive and trails branching from it. OHV Riders can get to the trail via canyon roads in Fairview, Mt. Pleasant, Spring City, Ephraim, Manti, Sterling, and Mayfield.
Some routes are passable only by ATVs; others can be traveled in a high-clearance four-wheel drive automobile. All ATV trails are also open to hikers, bikers, and horseback riders.
"The Arapeen is a great family trail with some advanced sections," says Fred Christensen, a leader in Central Utah ATV groups. "It is a more alpine environment with thicker trees and more lakes than the Piute Trail further south. When you get up on the Skyline, you can see both sides of the mountain, it's a fabulous view."
