Highlights

Highlight: The View
Probably one of the best views in the area, this is definitely a worth while spur. It is just a short 1.3 miles off of Black Rock Canyon and is very easy. If you search around, you can even find a geocache hidden in a tree. From the top, you can see all the way over Utah Lake to Provo and the Wasatch Mountains. If you turn around, you can see to Vernon and the Rush Valley to the Onaqui Mountains and the Sheeprock Mountains.

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!
