Mantua ATV Trails - Willard Peak Road
The Willard Peak Road is located south of Mantua Utah. This area is very popular for camping, mountain biking and OHV use. The road is approx 12 miles long with ATV trails leading off in every direction. A great place to stage and enjoy the many riding opportunities this canyon offers is at Doc's Flat, which is located 1 1/2 miles up the canyon.
From the Doc's Flat area you can travel up Willard Peak Road to the top which dead-ends at Inspiration Point. On are visit the snow stopped us from going to the top, but we heard the views of the Wasatch Mountains, Cache Valley and the Great Salt Lake are spectacular.
Approx 2 miles from Doc's Flat you will come to a road heading southeast with a sign that states "The next 3.8 miles traverse through private property stay on road". If you choose to travel down this road you will be treated with views of a mountain valley and several Beaver ponds. All ponds can be viewed without leaving the road, and we urge you to obey the sign to help insure this road stays accessible.
This area has been under extreme controversy due to heavy use of OHV's. Please stay on open trails and roads and pack it in pack it out! With that said, you will find an abundance of riding opportunities for all riding abilities. It is very common to see Deer, Moose, Elk and even Bobcats. The trails and even the roads will lead you through thick groves of Pines, Aspen, Oak and more. If your looking for a location to ride with the whole family, within a short distance from Salt Lake City visit this area.
