2019 Jeep Wrangler (4 door) (2.5"
lift, 33" tires)
After retiring in 2009, my wife, Tina, and I discovered Utah and after visiting the usual tourist attractions, in my wife’s Buick, we found Moab. And, after renting a Jeep and exploring a couple of trails, we were hooked. The Buick had to go, so naturally we traded it off for a Ford Raptor. However, my first “car” was a 1947 Willys, that my Grandfather gave me when I was 14, so having a history with that Jeep and the Raptor being just too wide for the Utah Jeep trails, we got a 2016 JKU Rubicon . We are mature, i.e. OLD, off-roaders and our current 2019 JLU Rubicon works great for the easy to moderate trails we enjoy. The scenery and remoteness are what bring us back, every spring and fall, to Utah.

After years of ignoring the area south of Green River, we finally took the South Lower San Rafael Road, for the first time, on our way to Moonshine Wash. Taking note of the many well-traveled turn-offs, on the 26-mile trip to the wash, we decided to go back and check them out. We are glad we did, as there is a lot to see and explore - Fossil Point, Moenkopi Badlands, Bull Bottoms, Chaffin Geysers, Trin Alcove Bend, Saucer Basin, Three Canyon – the San Rafael road is not boring, as we previously thought, and is worth exploring.
The Eva Conover trail remains my favorite trail in the Swell, and we never get tired of taking it. Since we have driven the Eva Conover trail to Secret Mesa several times, when exiting Eagle Canyon, we bypassed the first mile and started from the Utah highway maintenance yard road located between mile marker 120 and 121 on I-70 West and followed the Eva Conover/South Fork Coal Wash/Horn Silver Gulch/Dutch Flat Roads to Ferron. A fun, and spectacularly scenic trip and don’t forget to stop for ice cream at the Big Mountain Lodge store in Ferron.
