Overview

This is a gorgeous trail in western Utah that gives you some incredible views as well as some old mines to look down into. You also get to walk across the top of the grates that cover the closed-off mines. Just make sure you don't bring anything over them unless you have a firm grip! Being so close to Salt Lake City, you will often come across other off-roaders no matter the time of day or day of the week. Many people even do night runs in the area. There are many spurs around that can take you to different areas of the mountain so be sure you remember where you came from.
