From I-70 take Exit-23 (Panguich/Kanab) about 17 miles south of Richfield onto US 89 south and drive 12 miles to Marysvale. Pretty much the only reason you will ever come to Marysvale is to visit your grandparents or more than likely it's beacause you want to get away from the city to go camping, off-roading, and shoot guns.
From Main Street in Marysvale turn west onto Bullion Ave .5 mile and turn north onto Beaver Rd. This road heads west 10.1 miles to Beaver Creek Rd. turning into Kimberly Road. From here you can take the fork and head east down Deer Creek Rd just over 7 miles to the Rest Area on HWY-89 where you can get on the Piute Trail just north of Hoovers Restaurant, and head back south 7 miles into Marysvale, or you can continue heading north over the summit down into Fremont Indian State Park. Kimberly Road heads north 11 miles then turns northeast along I-70 for 4 miles to Fremont State Park.
Just head west up Beaver Creek Road for 8.13 miles before ariving at the junction with a sign. From here keep heading west another 12 miles to Big John Flat the highest point in elevation along this road is 11,400 feet. This road will end at the paved highway SR-173 near Elk Meadows Ski Resort and Puffer Lake. Beaver, UT is 16.13 miles to the west or 24.24 miles east to Junction, UT. This is one of my top five favorite rides in utah with views to the southeast of Delano Peak, and Mt Baldy and Mt Belknap to the northwest.
Beaver Creek Rd/Kimberly Rd/Fremont Indian Park
Bullion Pasture Trail-
From Marysvale take Forest Service Road 113 west to the junction with Forest Service Road 123. Follow Forest Road 123 west for 6 miles to the trailhead to the south of the dirt road where there is a restroom and a small parking lot. This trail system (Trailhead # 074) takes you east down Bullion Pasture Canyon and provides breathtaking views of rugged canyon country.
From Main Street turn west onto Bullion Ave .5 mile and turn south onto Bullion Canyon road. Continue west 6 miles up the canyon to an old Ghost Town called Webster. The Miners Park was built by Forest Service volunteers for the local miner Rell Fredericks. The 1/4 mile trail begins in front of the wooden mine car and continues to your right taking you past a bunch of displays of mining equipment and buildings. From here either return back down the canyon or you can take the Forest Service Road 126 (Wedge Road) just below the Bully Boy Mill. This 10 mile road takes you up near the summit of Mt Brigham before dropping down into Cottonwood Canyon to US-89 just south of Marysvale.
Bullion Falls-Moderate-2 Miles RT
Located just before the bridge crossing near the end of Bulling Road you can ride an ATV up a mile long somewhat rough trail to the trailhead of Bullion Falls.
Miners Park/Webster City
This cool little ghost town sits at the top of Bullion Canyon.

This dirt road crosses the creek near the junction of Pine Creek and Twomile Creek and heads east for .82 miles to a junction where you can turn south to a dead end or continue east connecting back to HWY-89. Not much to see here other than a couple watering holes that you could possibly fish at, but the riding is pretty rough and rocky.
Deer Creek Road begins just south of Big Rock Candy Mountain across the street from Hoovers restaraunt. Just follow the road heading west through the rest area, and follows along Deer Creek and is just over 7 miles long connecting with Beaver Creek Road and Kimberly Road. This road is on ATV recommended, if you run into someone coming in the other direction one or the other is going to have to reverse to find a spot to make room for the other to pass. At the mouth of the canyon you can visit Deer Creek Ghost Town and Hoovers Restaraunt is located along HWY-89. They serve the best cold beers on tap.
The Deer Trail Mine is located 5 miles SWS of Marysvale, or 165 miles SSW from Salt Lake City. Head south from Marysvale for 3.38 miles to Deer Trail Rd on your right. Turn here and head up the canyon for 1.98 miles and take the right fork and continue another 1.21 miles to Deer Trail Mine.
The Upper (old) Deer Trail Mine was discovered in 1878 and operated intermittently until 1942. The Lower Mine opererated on and off from 1945 to 1980. Western Pacific Resources is aquiring the mine from Unico, who aquired the property in 2000 and briefly produced from the Lower Mine from 2002-2004.
An underground drilling program in 2004-2005 yeilded numerous potentially profitable intercepts. Rehabilitation of the Lower Mine took place from 2000 through 2008 and was completed back to the 3400 area. Mining of sulphide ore there resumed from October 2008 until January 2009 until production was suspended due to low metal prices. Minerals mined here are Gold, Silver, Lead, Zinc, and Copper.
From Marysvale take Thompsonville Road southeast 4.31 miles to Monroe Mountain Rd and head east 1.8 miles to Dry Creek Road. This road heads east then north for 21 miles connecting to Monroe Canyon Road. Just before the end of Dry Creek Road and the junction of Monroe Canyon Road you will pass by Manning Reservoir, and Barney Lake is 1 mile to the west.
There are just too many dirts roads in this area so I'm just naming this location as the eastern mountain range of Marysvale. You will have to venture out on your own to find all the cool trails and mines in this area. This is a great location to pretty much do anything you want without being overtaken with overcrowded more popular recreational areas unless you visit during the ATV/UTV Jamboree weekend. These roads give you access to Big Rock Candy Mountain, Monroe and its surrounding cities, Piute Reservoir, probably even all the way to Mexico.
Riders are able to access the Paiute ATV Trail from a number of small towns throughout central Utah including Marysvale, Richfield, Beaver, Fillmore and Salina. Each of these towns give riders the opportunity to get a good meal, gas up or stay the night at a local hotel or bed and breakfast. ATVs are allowed on designated streets in each town along the trail allowing easy access to necessary services. Riders can even spend a full week on the trail - riding from town to town accessing services and getting a good night's rest. South-Central Utah's 275-mile long Paiute ATV Trail is a loop trail with no beginning and no end! It passes through several towns and has side trails leading to others. Dirt Wheels magazine rated the Paiute ATV Trail as one of the 15 best trails in the country. It has been rated as one of the top 5 trails in the country by ATV Illustrated magazine. Many riders consider the Paiute Trial to be the top US trail. The trail is designed to provide an enjoyable recreational ride through fantastic scenery. The trail was formed by connecting old roads and trails crossing the Fishlake National Forest with intervening BLM-administered land. Several narrow sections of trail were eventually constructed to complete the loop. The main trail is 275 miles long, with over 1000 miles of marked side trails and 1500+ estimated miles of side forest roads and trails. Due to its vast size, the Paiute ATV Trail is best explored in segments. Many riders along the four-foot wide trails enjoy the scenery and atmosphere of a deeply dense forest, as well as popular activities such as fishing or camping near the path. Panoramic scenes along ridges allow riders to see over hundred miles in the distance, which makes the ATV Trail a popular photographic destination. The main loop of the trail takes approximately 25 riding hours to complete - but that doesn't leave much time for stopping or taking pictures. For comfort and full enjoyment of the trail, the time should be spread out over three to four days. However, riders choosing to explore the thousands of miles of marked and unmarked side forest roads and trails may find themselves riding for weeks. Spring riding is possible on the lower portions of the trail, snowdrifts usually close the trail over the Pahvants and the Sevier Plateau until early July. This part of the trail traditionally remains closed until mid-to-late July. September and October provide some of the best riding weather on the Paiute Trail. At this time of year the days are brisk, the nights cool, the trees colorful, and the chance of precipitation is low. August is also a good time for the high country, although the lower portions of the trail can be hot. After October, storms may close the upper portions of the trail or make riding slightly unpleasant, but not unbearable.
From Main Street turn west onto Bullion Ave .5 mile and the road name will change to Rainbow Rd. This road heads west up to Rainbow Mine and dead ends at a private property gate just before reaching the mine. Back at the fork you can heads south connecting to Bullion Canyon Rd.
The Sevier River extends 279 miles and is the longest Utah river entirely in the state and drains to an extended chain of mountain farming valleys to the intermittent Sevier Lake which is usually dry. The river flows northward into Garfield County descending through the narrow 5 mile Circleville Canyon, emerging into Circle Valley at Circleville. It then flows northeast towards Junction and passes through the Piute Reservoir continuing across Piute County through Marysvale, Richfield, Salina, Nephi, past Delta and into the Sevier Lake.
This road begins just before Webster City at the end of Bullion Canyon Road and will climb from 7,900ft to above 11,000-ft passing Edna Peak. From Bullion Canyon head up Wedge Road for a couple miles and there will be a spur trail on your left that takes you down some switchbacks to a turnaround point where an old cabin sits at the top of a cliffside with a view of the valley below. There is also a waterfall off to the right, this is twomile creek. After 5 or so miles from Bullion Canyon Road you'll reach the summit where you will start dropping in elevation down Cottonwood Road.
Wedge Road/Cottonwood Canyon Road
It's another 10 miles from the summit back down Cottonwood Canyon to HWY-89. You can't ride your OHV on the HWY unless its street legal so you will have to make your way around along the frontage/local roads.
This is just one of the roads along the mountain east of Marysvale. Just take the main road heading east from Marysvale Park crossing over the Sevier River, turning north for about 2 miles and turn northeast at the junction. There are several turnoffs you can take along the mountainside. This particular one dead ends just after Whitehorse Mine.
