Highlights

Highlight: Clay Deposit Road
Clay Deposit Road is located within the Dixie National Forest near Enterprise Reservoir. The trail cuts across rolling hills and through a scenic canyon that connects with two other popular trails in the area. You connect this trail with Slaughter Creek twice throughout the trail. This allows you to run a long portion of Slaughter Creek, through The Pinnacles and back out on Veyo Shoal Creek Road, making for an incredible all-day loop. The trail is both scenic and mildly challenging for stock 4x4's. There are narrow shelf roads with sweeping switchbacks. You'll take in the passing mountains that are decorated with white sandstone formations. Always keep an eye to the sky, golden eagles, bald eagles, owls and hawks can be spotted hunting this remote wilderness.

While living in the Midwest, I developed a passion for searching out new trails and hidden spots. That passion continues to this day in the beautiful southwestern United States. My wife and I are full-time RVers who travel from region to region, exploring every nook and cranny we can find. While we're getting to know the locals, we gain insight into these areas then pass on that knowledge to our subscribers. We truly enjoy traversing long, beautiful back-country routes with epic campsites, but we equally enjoy pushing the limits on challenging rock crawling trails. Our rig was built to do everything, and that's what we hope to share with our subscribers.
