Mitchell Road is an easy 3.3-mile connector trail that travels through the North Desert OHV area with world-class mountain bike and OHV trails. The road travels along the base of the Book Cliffs, where numerous recreation trails crisscross the region. The trail system and abundant camping provide great opportunities to experience the diverse desert environment along the base of the Bookcliffs. The designated OHV area is for max 50" width ATVs.

At the trail's beginning, the North Fruita Desert Campground has primitive-type campsites with picnic tables, fire rings, and vault toilets, but no water. Campsite rates are $20 per night and include up to 10 people and 2 vehicles. There is an $8 non-refundable reservation fee for each reservation.  Food, lodging, and other supplies can be found nearby in the City of Fruita.
