Located in the high Uintas and close to the Bear River Lodge is the Lily lake or Wolverine ATV trail system (not to be confused with Lilly Lake or Murdock Basin Trail System). The Wolverine ATV trails has some incredible views and gorgeous sites like Christmas Meadows. This is a perfect place to take the family camping for the weekend and get in some great ATV riding. This area is well marked from the Highway and there a plenty of improved camp sites. A permit is required in this area and you will be stopped at the ranger station to pick it up. Most noticeable about this area is the number of lakes and streams. Many avid fishermen love to ride this trail with a fishing pole attached to their ATV and stop by the small lake for a few casts.

Trail difficulty depends on what you’re looking for and riders can keep it as simple as graded dirt roads or more challenging ATV width trails with some steep climbs. Because of the elevation, this area is only accessible for a few months of the year (Summer and Early Fall). There are also some great hikes in the area if you’re willing to get off the machine. Keep a good rain jacket handy as this area can turn to a downpour in a matter of a few minutes.
