Carbon County covers a wide range of geography, from mountains to gorges to plateaus. Hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails crisscross the region.
The 18-hole championship course at the Carbon Country Club is open to the public. Keep in mind that it may be hard to concentrate on your game when you're surrounded by sandstone cliffs, a waterfall, hidden Native American petroglyphs, and a pioneer burial ground. 3055 N. U.S. 6, Price, UT, 84501. 435/637–2388.
The canyons and expanses around Price boast trails that rival the slickrock of Moab, but without the crowds. The visitor center at the College of Eastern Utah Prehistoric Museum has a mountain-biking guide that shows several trails you can tackle, including Nine Mile Canyon. Adventurous hikers can use many of these trails as well. 155 E. Main St., Price, UT, 84501. 435/613–5060 or 800/817–9949.
At Fuzzy's Bicycleworks, owner Fuzzy "the Bike Guy" Nance is Price's go-to guy for trail details, fix-its, or area information. 710 W. Price River Dr., Price, UT, 84501. 435/637–2453. www.fuzzysbicycleworks.com.
