There are two main ATV trails up Hodges Canyon in Garden City with a few off shoots- Richardson Trail and Hodges Trail. In the spring time up there the wild flowers are so pretty. Then in the fall, the yellow aspens are stunning. At certain spots you can catch views of Bear Lake.
I wouldn’t consider them beginner trails as there are big ruts from spring run off and navigating over them can be tricky. There are also fallen logs at spots and big rocks to navigate.
But if you are looking to take a break from being on the lake, then Hodges Canyon is a fun trip. You get big vista views, cozy pine trails, rocks to climb, giant mud puddles, and quiet spots to stop for a snack. I can’t wait to head out there again.
