Additional Details:
The Dowd Mountain Trail begins on the high plateau of the Uintah Mountains of northeast Utah. The trail passes through longleaf pine and juniper. There''s very little elevation gain, and the trail is OK for strong novice riders. The trail is half singletrack and half double-track. If a rider gets tired, there''s a "bailout" graded road back from the midway lookout point.

The midpoint of the trail is this impressive view over Flaming Gorge. This 11-mile loop trail is well marked with blue diamonds on posts and trees.

Basic Directions
On Utah Highway 44, look for the Dowd Springs and Dowd Mountain Road signs about 14 miles south of Manila on the west side of Flaming Gorge reservoir. The trail starts at the graded road across the highway from the parking area. Just past the cattle guard, watch for the blue diamond marker as the singletrack leaves the road.
