Starting from 5 mile pass around 9:00 am going South to Eureka, gas up then hitting Cherry Creek area ( SW of Eureka).
It's a mixture of double and single track, some rocks and whoops.
Starting point 40.230525, -112.181439

Looks to be about an hour from me. What kind of bikes are you riding? Trailering smaller bikes or riding some ADV bikes? Thanks

This thread over in Thumpers just kind of fizzled out.

Cheers.
Every time I camp with the Dirt bikes outside of Moab, the US Forest Service Ranger comes around to check for spark arrestors. I have never run into them while our ridding. In my experience, Forest Service Rangers are way more about education than enforcement. That being said, it is a good idea to have a spark arrestor if you are ridding off-road. You don't want to be the guy who starts a range fire.

West Desert Bed and Breakfast

So Wednesday, my oldest son and I rode West on the Pony Express Trail. We had a great time by the way. Temps around 70, blue sky's you get the idea. Well, we made a wrong turn at one of the old Rider stations where there is a fork in the road, and soon found ourselves in Partoun, UT. It is God's country in the truest sense of the word, but we found, it is an awful long way from gasoline, 50+ miles or there about.

We originally intended to drive to gas but after the GPS routed us down what appears to be a very old, very little used double track, with little gas in the tank, we came to our senses and turned around before we became a made for TV drama. The second door we knocked was a really nice woman by the name of Barbara. Her and her husband have a nice farm out there, and she was kind enough to sell us some gas out of her personally stash. She mentioned that she is interested in starting a bed and breakfast for any Mountain Bikers, Motorcyclists, or 4x4 enthusiasts. I thought I would throw out her information if anyone is planning a trip out her way, she would be happy to put you up for the night, offer a warm shower and a hot meal, and fuel if needed. You can reach her at barbarajolley56@gmail.com, or 435-691-4120.

West Desert B&B

So if you are taking a ride to the South West Desert (between Garrison and Wendover) I have available lodging, meals, fuel. Nothing fancy, I am still remodeling the house and yard. But the beds are clean, the eats are filling and the evenings are quite.
Call make reservations @ 435-691-4120 or email barbarajolley56@gmail.com
We would love to have you. So come spend a few days riding our trails.

Thanks, Todd-Squad. If anyone has input on this or how you would go about fitting a spark arrestor to an adv bike (specifically a Dakar), lemme know. Thanks.

Promoto Billet out of Meridian ID makes some nice end caps with integrated spark arresters for some mufflers. We bought one a few years ago for my sons KTM 250SX. Very high quality workmanship.

I am going to try and make it. How many miles do you cover? I have a 3 gallon tank on my WR450. Thanks.

It's about an hour for me too. Getting there on a dirt bike is not very exiting so we are trailering the bikes. Most of us are on 450's. There are lots of bail out opportunities if you don't like it. 3 gal tank will do just fine. Plan is to do around 120 miles.
