Highlights

Highlight: Twelvemile Pass
Located in a small portion of the West Desert, the Tintic Mountain Range is home to endless exploration activities. In its heyday, the Tintics were one of the biggest and most successful mines in Utah. Each canyon gives new life to the chance of finding a piece of history. Twelvemile Pass Road is the northern route to give you access to all of these canyons. Although nothing exciting on its own, this trail is a must if you are wanting to explore the Tintic Mountains.

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!
