|Corkscrew Trail (Lapoint area)
The Corkscrew Trail is a 9.2 mile lariat loop located just east of Lapoint, about 12 miles west of Vernal on Highway 121. The highlight is a long undulating downhill through the red dirt and rock. It shares a trailhead with the Racetrack Trail, an easier loop. The Corkscrew trail climbs from 5600 to 6300 feet elevation. The downhill run is the highlight of this ride. The trail is a clockwise loop.
