Bullion Falls in winter near Marysvale Utah and the Paiute Trail

    Marysvale Weather and the four seasons of the Paiute Trails


The Bullion Creekside Retreat is located at 6300 feet at the foot of the 12000+ ft. elevation Tushar  Mountain Range.  The average temperatures are reflected in the chart above.   There are four very distinct seasons at this location.  We ride the trails every week of the year  and would like to share the following to give you a feel for the riding in all seasons in the area.


 Summer is generally characterized by hot or warm days and cool nights. Go downhill from the retreat for warmer temperatures or go uphill for cooler temperatures. Late July and August are characterized by clear mornings with occasional thunderstorm activity in the afternoons.  Most high elevation trails open up sometime in May or early June, but lingering snow drifts can block some parts of the highest trails (11000+) until the end of July. You should always be prepared for hail storms on any summer ride.  Sun protection and a jacket are recommended.


The warm weather generally extends well into the Fall with Indian Summer days and colorful fall color displays.  The fall offers excellent opportunities on most high elevation trails which are usually free from snow until the end of October. Middle and low elevation trails are generally completely clear during the fall months.  The mountain aspens, maples, and oaks start changing color in early September and are usually at their peak color display about the third week of September.  Lower elevation cottonwoods show their colors generally until the end of October.  The high mountain snow generally starts accumulating in November. The riding is still very good with most trails open and very fun. You should dress for cool weather and bring winter gear in case an early snow storm moves in.


The Winter brings snowy weather in December, January, and February. The nearby southern Utah ski resorts ( Elk meadows and Brian Head) are usually open  in December and provide excellent skiing opportunities.  Go up the trail/road from Bullion Creekside Retreat for excellent snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and ATV snow riding.  Most ATVs drive fine in snow  under 12 inches. We always recommend jackets, gloves and head gear this time of year.  One excellent activity is to ride the ATV up the trail until stopped by the deeper snow.  At this point one can turn around and park the ATVs, then snow-shoe or cross-country ski further up the trail. Come back to the parked ATVs ready to go downhill and return to the cabin to get warm and rest in the hot-tub. We never advise going too deep into the mountains in case you have to hike out in snow.  Stay completely away from avalanche areas.  We do not recommend driving down steep snow-packed grades that you are unsure of being able to return up. Completely avoid ice especially when it is near steep trail edges on the mountain roads. You will almost always be sorry if you don’t.  It can be a nightmare to slide off the ice over the edge of the road. Use all the safety precautions as if you were snowmobiling.  It should be noted that the lower valley trails (dozens of them) are almost always open for great winter riding.  Sometimes they are muddy but this makes for great riding and a change from dusty summer trails.  It is indeed a rare winter day that all the trails would be impassible in the lower valley.  You should dress for winter-riding as if you were skiing or snowmobiling with winter coats, head and face protection, winter gloves, and boots.  Chains or 4-wheel drive is not required but may be advantageous on snowy trails.


The Spring months bring the snow-melt. Lower level trails are completely clear with improved access to mid-elevation trails generally starting in March. The higher trails become available according to the weather progressively in April, May, and June. It is a lot of fun to ride the trails in the mud and melting snow. It is a different experience from the dusty summer trail-riding. One should bring winter gear in the Spring months and take winter-like safety precautions just in case a late winter storm moves through.


The Bullion Creekside Retreat is open year-round and Bryan and Ana ride the trails every week of the year.  We believe a passionate outdoors  and trail lover learns to experience the outdoors in all seasons and rides in all weather. Life is too short to limit your experience to the short summers in the high country.
