Hero: Chutes and Ladders
small-sr Icon

Chutes and Ladders is an extreme offroad trail in the western part of the Sand Mountain OHV Area. Constant walls, twists, wedges, and ledges line this thrilling challenge. Full-bodied rigs need not apply to this one; body damage would be inevitable. If you are looking for a challenge for your buggy, this would be an excellent place to start. Its proximity to the parking lot makes this even better, so if you break, it is just a short jaunt back to your trailer.

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.

Fees

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.

Requirements

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.
