Recommendations near Brian Head, UT?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a remote camp (preferably with some mtn biking trail options) in the vicinity of Brian Head? I don't know the area at all and will be passing through for a night or two around the 1st of October. I'm not familiar with the area at all and have no desire to hang out with the Mtn Bike Park crowds.

Thanks in advance!

I believe Duck lake is near by, and has lots of BLM free camping and tons of trails. Just checked on maps says 30 minutes away. Check it out great area. I ride my ATV all around there for days, lots of trails. I may even be in the area about that time.

Brian Head is actually pretty sleepy but there's dispersed camping off hwy14. Just be mindful the closer you get to Duck Creek Village the closer you are to ATV/OHV central. There are also lots of options off 143 down to Panguitch Lake. Cold nights for sure in October. Navajo Lake and making a loop with Virgin Rim is a good ride. Also, Thunder Mountain isn't too far away with lots of dispersed camping.

It's not boondocking but there is a nice campground at Navajo Lake off of Highway 14 fairly near the Brian Head / Cedar Breaks area. There are trails around which we drove the SMB but would be fun on a mountain bike.

I recall that most of the forest service roads to dispersed areas were on the eastern end of the road, clearly visible on Google Earth.

The nice part about Utah is you can pretty much pick any Forest Service road in the state and find boondocking spots to camp. This is particularly true around Brian Head. However, there was a very bad fire in the area a year or two ago that wiped out about 20 miles of forest. I would suggest you just enjoy exploring and find a serendipitous spot.
