Highlights

Highlight: Barlow Canyon Mines
Definitely a worthwhile spur off of Barlow Canyon this road leads to one of the best mines in the area. The road up is really nice, although only half a mile long. Once you are at the top of the trail, there is a mine back and to the left in the rock hill. You can see where the old entrance used to be, an open gated entrance, and a grate over another shaft. If you venture the other direction from the road, you will see some tailings from that mine.

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!
