    I am going to be camping around Bryce Canyon. I found the following ATV trails, would they be good KLR650 rides? Any other good rides in the area?

    Fremont ATV Trail (ATV) - 50 miles
    </pre>
    72-mile Paunsaugunt ATV Trail

    East Fork ATV Trail (ATV) - 77 miles

    Don't know those trails :dunno offhand.....

    MAy need to double check the trail requirements- may of the southern UT atv trails do not allow 2 wheeler use :loco . Specifically, the Paiute trails don't let us play, even plated bikes :bluduh.

    you mentioned Red canyon..the one near Hite?

    Signal: Paiute trail closed to motorbikes? really? when did that happen? i've looked at some threads here about people riding those trails, albeit a couple years ago, they're closed now?

    always looking for company down there...

    I've not seen an ATV trail in Utah yet where 2-wheelers were not permitted (maybe something has changed in the last few months?) Looking at maps that I picked up in the last month for trails south of I-70, show that motorcycles are permitted anywhere the 4-wheelers are.
    We ran into forest service employees as well as one FS law enforcement officer. Not any of them told us to leave. I've seen plenty of motorcycles on the Paiute.

    Paunsaugunt and Fremont both had sections that I rode as recently as last summer. Motorbikes were permitted then.
