Highlights

Highlight: FR 91B
If aspen groves and a high probability of seeing some wildlife appeal to you, FR 91B might be worth the detour. Its western end begins near Sheep Springs, a perennial water source attracting the local 4-legged forest denizens as well as turkeys and other critters. The trail climbs quickly on the shoulder a small canyon into a grove of quaking aspen trees. The north fork in the road leads to a gravel pit cut into the side of the butte around which FR 91B skirts. Though the main road is often gated, the local ATV crowd has created some alternate entrances to find some fun on the soft slopes of the quarry. FR 91B is short but packs a lot in its roughly one and a half miles. Side trips are often the best trips. Enjoy!

Standing at the gate of the gravel pit, I glanced up at the treeline above and in front of me. A very nice antler rack rose up amidst the pines. The bull took a brief look back at me and left down the reverse slope. That happens to me a lot in this area. I really like this little side trail.

Hi! I'm Wade. After 43 years as a pilot, split evenly between flying fighters for the Air Force and Boeing 737s for the airlines, my feet are firmly planted on the ground. Seems I spent a lot of my flying time looking out the cockpit window thinking, "Yep, I could drive that trail." My trips range from a few days to a month. Most are solo in my silver 4Runner named Bullit. We range over all the southwest exploring remote places and trying to get as much dirt under the wheels as possible. Occasionally I get in some hiking, backpacking, and bushcraft as well. My most ambitious overlanding plans include a trip to Tuktoyaktuk and Dead Horse. Sharing my experiences as a member of the Trails Offroad crew is a true pleasure. Hope to see you on the trail soon.
