For those who like to enjoy their outdoors in a more rugged, fast paced manner, the Dixie National Forest and local lands administered by the BLM (Burea of Land Management) are easily accessible from Panguitch. On these public lands you’ll find miles and miles of ATV riding terrain among forests, red rock formations for which Southern Utah is famous.
Loops such as the Badger Creek, the Sandy Peak, and the Kings Creek Loop, to name just a few, each provide unique views and vistas. The Badger Creek Loop is an intermediate path which allows riders to enjoy high ridges of forest climbs and numerous scenic mountain views. The Sandy Peak Loop begins and ends in Panguitch and provides miles of shallow water crossings, rich, dense forests and high altitude views during a thirty mile roundtrip. Kings Creek Loop is twenty five miles outside of Panguitch and runs along the Scenic Highway 12 near Bryce Canyon National Park. Whether ATV enthusiasts prefer riding among flowers or forests, rocks or rivers, there is an ATV trail to suit every taste.
