The Bureau of Land Management Vernal Field Office announced Tuesday the official opening of the newly constructed Red Fleet Downhill Flow Trail. According to the press release, the trail offers a unique experience for visitors looking to hone their mountain bike speed and technical skills. Trail users can select from a green (easy), blue (intermediate), or double black (advanced) course based on their experience, and comfort levels. “I look forward to welcoming visitors to the Vernal Field Office and bringing such a unique mountain biking experience to the local community,” said Roger Bankert, Field Manager. “I’m proud of what our staff and partners have accomplished by working together!” The opening ceremony was held on April 23rd with several partners including Northeastern Utah Mountain Bikers (NUMB), Uintah County, Patrick Morrison with the Utah Governor’s Office, Uintah County Special Services Transportation District, as well as the Uintah County Travel and Tourism. These partners and their support of these trails were key to the success of this project, continues the BLM announcement. The BLM Vernal Field Office thanked them for their hard work and coordination. The trail system is located 12 miles outside of Vernal. The trail system includes four trails that are part of a larger complex of trails north of Red Fleet State Park.
