Highlight: Temple Canyon
Temple Canyon provides access to a large network of off-road trails. Popular for all motorsports, the Bear River Range in the Wasatch Mountains is also a very desired place for hunters to gather from summer until the snow falls. This trail is one of the easier dirt roads into the network allowing trailers to be towed up, while also providing a quick and easy exit for off-roaders needing to refuel or buy food in nearby Laketown. With its close proximity, it is also a nice way to combine off-roading with a visit to Bear Lake. Spend a day or an entire week exploring miles of trails right off of Temple Canyon.

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!
