    Route Description for Mustang Loop Trail

    The Mustang Loop is a low-traffic hike in a beautiful area of the Utah desert. This trail is shared by hikers and mountain bikers, so be aware of your surroundings and allow bikers to zip past you. Dogs are allowed on this trail, but they must be kept on leash for the duration of their hike. The Mustang Loop is part of a larger trail network, so there are lots of opportunities for exploration in this stunning area.

    From highway 313, follow the Chisholm Trail eastward for half a mile to a divide. This divide marks the beginning and end of the Mustang Loop.

    Follow the loop for 4.2 km back to the start, then follow the Chisholm Trail back out to the highway. There are lots of trails that intersect the loop along the way, but the Mustang Loop is very well marked and very well signed, so don’t worry about getting lost.
