The Fallen Acess is a rocky and challenging connector road between Sand Dune Way and East Fenceline Road. This trail intersects and crosses many popular trails within the Sand Mountain OVH area but is primarily used to access "The Chute" obstacle at the top of Double Sammy and the beginning of The Fallen trail. From the west, the trail starts as an easy trek through soft sand with occasional protruding slickrock and slowly transitions to wavy slabs of petrified dunes. After passing Double Sammy and Papa Smurf, the trail slows to constant crawl speeds and increases in difficulty substantially as you negotiate constant undulating rock, steep drops, and minor off-camber situations. Good suspension articulation, skid plates, and rocker protection are certainly needed for this trail. The trail can be run in either direction and is the same difficulty either way. This trail best suits experienced drivers in modified vehicles with larger tires.
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.
