    The ATV Paiute trail is extensive. Over 275 miles of trails through the mountains. Central to the trail is Marysvale. However one branch does come up to the Fremont State Park. There is a campground available and ATV's are welcome. A neighbor of mine was on this exact trail the same time we were driving through. She said the trail near Fremont State Park was especially beautiful.

    Along the road to the Visitor Center are 12 designated hikes. Following these will lead you to rock art on the walls of the canyon. Get a description and guide at the visitor center.

    Just outside the visitor center a typical pit house has been recreated along with a grainery. We had a hard time getting into the pit house due to being taller than the Fremont must have been. But on a hot day the house was noticeably cooler than outside.

    The visitor center is a great way to get to know the Fremont Indian way of life. There are artifact displays from the area, with a diorama of a typical home, pottery, clothing, food, and more.

    There is a short 15 minute movie detailing the finding of the site, showing the way of life of the ancient inhabitants.

    There is a small shop where books, and other related craft items can be purchased. All sales of course helping the bottom line of the center.

    The ranger led hikes are informative. They also sponsor activities such as atatl throwing contests and wildflower festivals.
