The Paradox Trail links the Tabeguache Trail on the Uncompahgre Plateau and Kokopelli’s Trail in the La Sal Mountains of Utah. Its 100 mile length traverses a wide variety of terrain, elevation and eco-zones. Most of its length follows existing jeep and county roads. It is accessible by mountain bike from the months of May through November although many sections are accessible year round.

Most of the trail is located on remote, unpatrolled BLM and US Forest Service administered lands with unmarked hazards. Be prepared with plenty of food and water. Drinking water is not readily available along the trail. Water can be found in major drainages, but should be treated before drinking. Services are limited to the Nucla/Naturita area and Bedrock.

The adventurous nature of the Paradox Trail requires users to be cautious, personally responsible, self-sufficient and have a working knowledge of back country survival. The use of topographic maps and a compass is strongly recommended. Most of the trail can be found on the Nucla, La Sal, and Moab 1:100000 scale BLM maps.
