Tooele | Utah | The Knolls Recreation Area

Salt Lake City, Utah ATV Trail Description

The Knolls Recreation Area is located right off of I-80 in Utah’s west desert is. Nearly 36,000 acres of sand dunes, hills, and flats this place is the perfect ATV play area. The flats are open and provide you a great area to open up the throttle a little more. There are endless trail opportunities, , however be mindful to stay in the boundaries. If you travel to far south you will enter the Dugway bombing range. The boundaries are clearly marked with a fence so you should know when to stop. Make sure your planning includes plenty of food water and fuel. There are no immediate services (convenience stores, civilization…. at all) and don’t forget and bare essential toiletries (the toilet paper) sagebrush is not a good option.
