The Trail Hero Event Details

Trail Hero is built around joining together the drive for more access and awareness to our trail system and sport. With the combination of 4 days of wheeling trails from mild to wild and our themed days, to provide those less fortunate the opportunity to the great outdoors; Trail Hero is truly built with everyone in mind. Once done with the trails, participants can enjoy other aspects of our sport by attending various features throughout the week like the Night Rock Crawl, Endurance Rock Race, and Bounty Hill, all of which have start times later in the day so you can enjoy your trail ride. The idea is that we provide rock sports entertainment from every aspect of our industry so that after the trails are done, people are not left with an empty day. This entertainment is open to the public and free of charge; however if you would like, both UPLA and U4WDA will be onsite collecting donations to aid our fight for land use local to the state of Utah.
Registering for trails is easy, just pick out what trails you want to run. For information on each trail, click on the lowercase " i ". If you are in a group, you can buy more than one trail at a time. Just leave the names of the drivers the comments box so we can put it in our records. Prices and inclusion are listed below. Regisiter today as trails have population limts and once full, trails will be closed to further participation. Lastly, if there is a trail that you really want to be on but is full, call and let us know. We'll do our best to work with you on developing more opportunities.

Southern Utah Weather
In Early October, Hurricane Utah can still have a high of the Mid to low 80's with an average low of 50. Rain becomes more prevalent later in the month from the middle to end of October.  The Mid 80's makes Hurricane a perfect wheeling destination during the early part of October. Furthermore, the fall colors start changing the scenery into a picturesque experience. Southern Utah is known widely for it's color country and October is the climax of the change from Summer to Fall Colors.
