Cove Fort Trailhead

Cove Fort Trailhead

Cove Fort is another great access point for getting on the Paiute Trail on the west side of the trail system where you’ll enjoy easy access from I-15.

While Cove Fort is the primary historical point of interest, it is not necessarily the best place to park for a ride. The best place to park is at the Chevron Station located at the I-15 interchange. This site has ample parking, a nice picnic area, restrooms, gas, goodies, and a trail information kiosk. From here, you can access the system along PST #20 going east or north.

If you want to go east, turn right as you exit the Chevron Station and travel 1.5 miles southeast to Cove Fort. At Cove Fort, you’ll pick up PST #76 for a fun ride up Cove Creek, and into Shingle Creek, the old Cove Fort Highway, Fish Creek, and Fremont State Park.

If your destination is north, follow PST #20 through the pass shared with I-15 and into Dog Valley. There the route turns east to Bull Valley. There is a route down Dry Wash (PST #19) into Kanosh and onto Fillmore.

Many want to continue the ride to the east and connect with the Paiute and back to Fremont Indian State Park. This makes a fantastic day-long, 40-mile loop ride. You can make your way south to Beaver, north to Fillmore, east to Richfield, and to the little towns in the Sevier Valley. Once you know your destination, it’s best to have a good map as there are lots of navigational twists and turns.
