Bear Lake ATV Trails - Shoshone ATV Trail System
The Bear Lake KOA is a perfect location to begin a great day of exploring the Shoshone ATV trail system. Directly behind the park is a trail head that will lead to hundreds of miles of ATV trails. From the KOA the trail follows the lower portion of the mountain behind Garden City, Utah. You will travel by an operational gravel pit then turn right and head up the mountain until you come to a "Y" in the trail. Travel Southwest, and this portion will take you to the Bear Lake Overlook up Logan canyon.
The trail will lead you through thick groves of Pines, Aspens, Wildflowers, and of course provide spectacular views of Bear Lake. Once at the top you will travel on the right side of HWY 89 to a tunnel currently under construction by the Forest Service. This tunnel will provide access under HWY 89 to the Hardware Ranch Road. Once on the Hardware Ranch Road you will have an abundance of riding opportunities.
Just 1.5 miles from the tunnel will be the first marked ATV trail you can experience. The Hodges ATV Trail starts off in a large sage brush valley, then descends into the canyon. You will be treated with several stream crossings and the trail leads through thick forested areas. Other trails in the area include the Little Bear Trail, Trail #255, and Trail #175, are accessible from the Bear Lake KOA.
If you want to experience the many trails in the beautiful Bear Lake Area, but want to stay in a location that provides comfort, swimming, full line of groceries, gas and much more, try the Bear Lake KOA!
