Highlight: Tub Ridge
Although just a short spur off of Reservation Ridge, this stunning offroad trail will give you some incredible sights of the Uinta Mountains just southeast of Strawberry Reservoir. Many years ago, a wildfire burned through the area scorching the land. With the passing years since the fire, the grasses and wildflowers have grown back in creating a very unique and beautiful landscape. There are an endless amount of colors to see in the springtime with all of the flowers blooming. Wildlife is also abundant from butterflies and deer to black bears and mountain lions. This spur is sure to provide many photographic opportunities so be sure to take this three and a half mile trail to the end and have your camera charged and ready!

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!
