Highlights

Highlight: Edwards Canyon
This is a great off-road trail if you're looking to get away from the crowds of Salt Lake City. It is a short drive from the Wasatch Front and far less popular than 5 Mile Recreation Area just north of here. With it being less known, you will likely be alone all day with the possibility of an occasional vehicle rolling by. The scenery in the Tintic Mountains is unique to the West Desert of Utah. Although you may not find any challenges here, it will be a nice and peaceful getaway.

Waypoints

1. Trailhead (0 mi)
The trailhead has a little bit of meeting space, but not much. It actually starts at the base of a grassy hill, even though it doesn't look like much. There is no need to air down for this trail other than ride comfort.

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!
