This is the most well-known offroad trail in the area, although it is still pretty abandoned most of the year. This popular trail from Saratoga to Vernon Reservoir follows a section of the Prospector OHV Complex. This complex has hundreds of miles of dirt roads ranging from Tooele to Eureka and Utah Lake to Dugway. You could spend days on the trails and never see the same thing twice. The mines in the area are the main reason for the offroading since this was once one of the most extensive mining areas in Utah. There are still plenty of mines that you can explore if you know where they are. Although now closed off, Nutty Putty Cave is one of the more famous of them all and even has a movie out about the story of the man whose body remains within the walls. Black Rock Canyon is the only trail to take you straight up and over the East Tintic Mountains, allowing you to reach a new area of trails. The View is a spur off of this trail and provides one of Utah's best views of the West Desert. Be sure to pack plenty of food and water, as getting lost on all the spurs out here is easy, and bring a flashlight to explore the caves!
