Off-Road Trail Spotlight: Daggett Flats Rd – St. George, Utah Trails

St. George, Utah has enough trails to rival Moab. Some of these trails are not as popular as the ones in Moab but this isn’t a bad thing. It simply means that those looking for relaxing scenic rides away from the crowds can have their pick of St. George trails. There are enough trails in this corner of Utah to suit everyone, from novice four-wheelers to more experienced ones.

One of the trails we at Dixie 4 Wheel Drive love running is the Daggett Flats Road. This can be done on its own or as part of a combined trip to Enterprise Reservoir – which is how we like to do it during our trail riding events.

Trail Overview

If you’re looking for a trail that’s short on obstacles but big on views, then Daggett Flats Road is the one for you. The trail takes you up along a winding route to the hills, reaching high elevations before descending in some sections. This is mostly a dirt road and you should expect a bumpy ride in some sections, along with a few rocky sections, but nothing that a stock 4WD or a custom build 4×4 can’t handle. To be on the safe side, ensure your rig has sufficient ground clearance as well as tires that can handle the terrain. It’s also a good idea to take on the trail during the dry months as rain may make some of the sections impassable.

The trail does get narrow in sections, allowing vehicles to pass in single file. Thanks to regular maintenance, the brush sits well back from the trail. This is great news for your rig’s paint job.

Getting There

The Daggett Flats Road trail offers outstanding scenery with plenty of places where you can stop and take photos. While not exactly a remote area, it can be difficult to find your way along the route if you’ve never been there before. To make things easier, download the area’s trail tracks from our online store and save them to a navigation app such as Gaia Maps GPS. This way, you can rest easy knowing you have the trial route in whichever device you choose to use.

As you run the trail, remember to stick to the designated route. Don’t go blazing your own trail as you run the risk of damaging the delicate desert flora and fauna. It’s also a good idea to make the trip as part of a group or with at least one other vehicle in case you run into problems and need to be bailed out.

To ensure your rig is up for the trip, bring it to the Dixie 4 Wheel Drive auto shop in St. George where our 4×4 experts will tune it up for you. We can also handle any repairs or servicing your rig needs after running the trail.
