Located in the St. George / Hurricane / Washington area in the state of Utah, this is hands down the coolest hard core rock crawling I've ever done.
A bunch of Canadian rock crawler guys I've competed with have an annual Moab trip in May, and decided for their 10th year, to try a new location.
I invited myself, and it worked out super well.
Now, onto the pics...
Day 1 we went and did some wheeling on some private land.









Cacti were in full bloom -

Days 2 through 4 were spent in Sand Hollow, a Utah state park. The best $10/day I've ever spent. Clean public bathrooms, gravel staging area, lake/reservoir access, friendly staff, and no one stole any of the $$$ tools and spare parts I had in the bed of my truck. The land is specifically designated for recreation. Within the park, if you can drive your ______________ there, its legal to drive your ____________ there. They rented pontoon boats, jet skis, ski boats, quads, sand rails, side by sides, and even had a snack shack.
We saw folks riding horses, folks out taking pictures of the plants / sand dunes, and everyone was respectful to everyone else.
Oh, and it has some of the most bitchin terrain I've ever driven.
Day 2 -
Trail called 'Nasty Half'

Trail called 'Arrowhead'












Trail called 'Chain Reaction' followed by a trail called 'Smurfette'. I didn't take very many photos on those trails apparently.

Day 4 -
Went looking for some trails, and kinda drove on stuff that it looked like no one had ever driven. But that is part of what made this trip so cool.






We ran part of a trail called 'Milt's Mile' later on that day, but then got off that.


Once getting off that trail, we found this cool deal, and drove it, then picked our own path back to the trucks.

That cool deal is called the chute. It's technically after upper chain reaction. We usually do that then afterwords run down smurfette trail. There's a bunch of awesome trails there. I love that place, I try to spend as Mich time as I can there. Now you've motivated me to get the crawler up and going again.....thanks!
