Bill's Sandy is a short trail in the Wood Hill riding area north of Price. It's not a stand-alone ride, but is a fun and quick option while playing around in the area. The trail is 1.2 miles long, tilting gently downhill from east to west (the trail is designed to ride in this direction). It's a very easy cruise, but with some stunts built in as options.
Fork left on Smo' Joes when you reach the Knott Pete's-Wyatt's Way intersection. When Smo' Joes reaches the cattleguard (with Therapy continuing straight), turn left on the broad trail out to the road. Cross the road to Dick's Cutoff, then fork left when you reach Bill's.
The trail begins with twisting but easy turns in the junipers. There's not much rock work here. And I found that, despite the name, the trail surface wasn't "Sandy" but was firm and easy to ride.
As you ride along, man-made stunts invite you to try something. (No guarantees here. Wood structures deteriorate, so you may not find the stuff you're seeing in my photos.)
Eastbound on US 6, take the first Price exit. Turn left and enter town on 100 North. About a mile after leaving the freeway, turn left (north) onto 300 East. Drive to 900 North and turn left. The road will turn to dirt and/or narrow asphalt, and will veer right and climb the mesa.
Classic trailhead: One-half mile later at the top of the mesa, just after passing the mound of dirt that hides the city water tank, fork left (west) and proceed 100 yards to a primitive parking area. the trail begins on the west side.
Wood Hill trailhead: On the dirt road, drive to the top of the mesa as above, but continue north another 1/2 mile. The prominent trailhead is on your left.
