Hero: Bobsled Cut Through
small-sr Icon

Bobsled Cut Through is a straight-through connector trail between West Rim and John's Trail, traveling west to east, severing the two halves of the Bobsled trail. The surface of Bobsled Cut Through is a mix of sand and slickrock with one small ledge less than 10 inches tall that must be negotiated. Erosion over time could cause this ledge to increase in size, but approach and departure angles should not be an issue. This trail is short and only takes a few minutes to travel. It is a great option for those who just completed John's Trail and want to head over to the more fun optional obstacles along West Rim and Faulty Towers. Bobsled Cut Through is 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, there are multiple entry/exit points for the area, 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.
