Highlights

Highlight: Constrictor
This is one of the harder trails within this network, other than Sidewinder. Even more modified rigs will be put to the test just to get to the hardest of the obstacles; Eagles Nest. At this point, you should expect breakage or a rollover if you even have the guts to attempt this wall. There is a winch point beyond it, but it can only help so much. Many people turn around at the sight of Eagles Nest, however, a few have made it beyond this point and reached the top. This is a great trail for a bit more of a challenge within "the snakes" as the locals call it. Consisting of 5 total well-established trails, this area is sure to never leave you wanting more.

Mapping Crew - Utah

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, he's only been off-roading since he was 16 but fell in love immediately. He attended college in Denver for Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management and wheeled in Colorado for 4 years, but ended up moving back home to Salt Lake City. He currently works in an off-road shop and spends his free time doing anything he can to stay busy, which is usually working on his jeep or playing music. Outside of off-roading, he is an avid whitewater rafter and outdoor cook. Camping at least every other weekend in any season is a normal year. The further from civilization, the better. Bring on the memories!
