Highlights

Highlight: South Fork of Coal Wash
This is a cool trail to run if you are in the area. It will be run if you do Eva Conover first, or if you want to run it south you will begin on this trail. After Eva, it is nice to be able to lay down the skinny pedal and cruise through this sandy wash. You even get to a nice large dune that you can have some fun at for a few minutes or let the kids out and give them a little workout. This trail is a fairly active wash coming off of the main Coal Wash so it changes with every storm, but the scenery stays incredible.

As with all washes, be prepared and aware at all times. Storms can be miles away and still cause a flash flood. Always have a high point in mind in the event of a flash flood.

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!
