Hero: Bobsled

Bobsled is a straight-through, north-to-south alternative between West Rim and John's Trail. The northern half of the trail is primarily bumpy slickrock as you make your way to or from the West Rim bathroom. A few optional obstacles can be found along this stretch, but a high clearance vehicle is suitable for the entire section. The trail's southern half is the most fun, with tight, high-bank sandy corners that are great for those looking for a speed fix. This trail is two-way, and users should always anticipate oncoming traffic. Occasional protruding rocks can be found in the sand, but the southern half is still suitable for any high clearance vehicle.

About Sand Mountain

Sand Mountain is an extremely unique parcel of public land. Designated as an Open OHV Area, riders are free to make their own trails. Due to this, many of the long-established named trail routes have several variations that can take easier or more challenging routes through the intended trail. The GPX track for this trail helps you navigate the area, but various lines, bypasses, and additional obstacles may exist along the way. Riders are encouraged to stay on existing trails and not unnecessarily drive over or destroy vegetation.


Riding on Sand Mountain is entirely free. However, the area has multiple entry/exit points, including "the tunnel," which connects Sand Hollow State Park to the open OHV area. Any entry into the boundaries of Sand Hollow State Park requires a Utah State Park Pass.


When operating on Sand Mountain, users must attach an orange or red safety flag to the vehicle, rising at least 8 feet off the ground.
