Approximate Section Time
·Konosh southeast to main Paiute Trail ---- 0.5
The town of Konosh is located at 4,620 feet elevation. After
leaving the town, the ATV side trail gently rises as it heads southeast
into Konosh Canyon. It follows Corn Creek, eventually turning south
to follow Second Creek. The side trail joins the main Paiute ATV
trail only nine miles after beginning the journey. The maximum elevation
of this side trail is 6,500 feet.
Heading southeastward out of Konosh, trail 06 passes through
open areas of sagebrush, rabbit brush, and Utah Juniper. The trail
follows Forest Road 106 which is a fairly well traveled dirt road,
so keep your speed down, your lights on, and be cautious of other
traffic. After two and a half miles the terrain narrows as the trail
enters Konosh Canyon at the Forest boundary. The trail gently winds
through the canyon along Corn Creek which offers some of the best
German Brown trout and Rainbow trout fishing in the State.
Approximately two and a half miles into the canyon is Adelaide
Campground. The campground is located adjacent to Corn Creek in
a beautiful cottonwood and big tooth maple setting. The campground
has six single family sites and one group site. It is perfect a
place to camp with quick access to the Paiute ATV Trail.
The trail continues a quarter mile southeast of Adelaide Campground
where it meets the convulence of Corn Creek and Second Creek. At
the convulence, the trail turns south and follows Second Creek for
three miles to where it joins the main Paiute ATV trail, trail 01.
