Highlights

Highlight: Allen's Ranch Road
This is an important road in the area. Although it may be short and mild, it allows quick access to the Tintic Mountains from Little Moab/Chimney Rock Pass on a public road. Other roads in the area are quite a bit out of the way or private property. This is also part of the Prospector OHV Backcountry Complex taking you from Utah Lake over to Vernon Reservoir. The Prospector OHV Backcountry Complex is a network of trails in the west desert of Utah taking you from town to town by dirt. The network spans hundreds of miles and achieved funding in 2010 for signage and maps. The network ranges from Tooele to Eureka, and Utah Lake over to Dugway. This accommodates day runs to long multi-day trips to everything in between. Gear up and be ready for an adventure in the west desert of Utah. Allen's Ranch is also a Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit (CWMU) so hunting is permitted on this private land.

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!
