The Paper Airplane Trail is a fun trail located at Powder Mountain, Utah. The trail takes you to a giant “Paper Airplane” sculpture (hence the trail name). The map shown below goes from North to South starting at the road, then ending at Baggage Claim. The trail continues back to the road, but on the day we rode the trail we continued on to Baggage Claim and then on to one of our favorite trails, Brim. We parked at the Brim trail parking, then rode back along the road for nearly 2 miles with a fair bit of uphill to the Paper Airplane trailhead.
Max elevation: 8640 ft
