    What kind of trail impact do the riders in that area leave? Does the clay wear very little?

    It's much more loamy than one may think just by looking at it. If they could keep cattle and horses
    off of it, it would be as hard as Fred Flintstone's newspaper. The reason it looks wider than the 6"
    of tracks running through it is because of the cattle that range there in Winter (barney cattle).
    The mountain bike impact is minimal in the Vernal area because of trail design, the skill of local
    riders and low traffic caused by the lack of an interstate running through the area. It takes a bit
    of time to get to that corner of UT and it's to the advantage of the trails there. Those who do make
    the trip over there are mostly the more dedicated type of mountain biker and that set is generally
    more skilled than the average slob who never leaves the "comfort" of the interstate highway system.
