Hero: East Tintic Mountain Exploratory Canyon Route
small-aa Icon
About 1 1/2 hours from Salt Lake City, this four-wheel-drive route is in the Prospector OHV Network and brings you along the East Tintic Mountains. This route gives you off-road access into the historic canyons in which the prospectors mined silver and gold in this area referred to as the "Tintic Mining District." The Tintic Mining District is among the oldest mining camps in Utah. Ore was first discovered in December 1869, about a mile east of Silver City, and the district was organized the following spring. The district is named in honor of the Ute Indian Chief Tintic, who lived his whole life in the area with his tribe. Shortly after the district was organized, an influx of settlers, prospectors, and miners started to move in. By 1899, the Tintic District was the leading mining center of the state of Utah.
