|Milk and Cookies Loop:
Got Milk? And Cookies.
Plus beginner-level Combo trail
This ride is an six-mile loop on McCoy Flat west of Vernal. It can be ridden either direction. The components are the Got Milk? trail to the west of the McCoy Flat road, plus the And Cookies trail on the east side. The ride is quite easy technically. There's only about 200 vertical feet of climbing for the entire ride. An even-easier option is to link And Cookies with Combo. This makes a 3.5-mile loop of very easy singletrack suitable for beginners.

Beginner route! Riding notes, Cookies and Combo counter- clockwise loop:
While driving toward Vernal on US-40, pass mile marker 138, then turn right on the narrow paved McCoy Flats road (unmarked, N40 23.427 W109 35.752). If you miss McCoy Flats road, go to the viewpoint overlooking Vernal and backtrack exactly 2 miles, then turn left into the road. Drive 3 miles to a corral on the left and park there. The trail starts directly across the paved road from the corral. At the doubletrack, veer right onto singletrack trail.
