West Rim more

West Rim is one of the most popular trails offered for Trail Hero.  What makes it so popular is that if you are with a group that has a wide range of vehicles, from stock to wild, you will be able to tour together and find something that will challenge you.  There are many places where you can drive your stock rig up right next to the built rigs and watch them struggle to make the hardline.  You all will be amazed at the incredible 360-degree views of Sand Hollow, Zion Park, Pine Valley Reservoir, St. George, The Arizona Strip, and Hurricane Cliffs. 


The trail stages at the Hurricane Water Tanks, then heads over to the lower sand dunes by the golf course.  After going down and up the dunes, the course continues to the first slickrock obstacle, The Steps.  As the name implies, this is a set of ledges that will test your suspension and driving ability.  Like many of the obstacles on West Rim, there are easy, hard, and very hard lines.  Lunch is usually held at, appropriately enough, the "Lunch Room," an alcove surrounded on 3 sides by tall rock formations, and a nice viewpoint of Warner Valley and the Arizona Strip to the south.  From the Lunch Room, there is plenty of 4-wheeling left.  The "Rock Garden" is at the end of West Rim Trail.  From there, the return route is down Hurricane Sand Dunes.  

This popular trail tends to fill up fast. 

Scenery

Incredible 360-degree vistas of Sand Hollow Reservoir, Zion Park, Pine Valley Mountains, Warner Valley, the Arizona Strip, Hurricane Cliffs, and Hurricane Sand dunes.

Surface

Sand dunes and sandy roads, then slickrock ledges and two-track rocky roads.

Trail Details

There a many obstacles on this 4-rated trail, with twice as many options just off the trail.  The trail starts with "The Steps" (slickrock ledges) and then to "The Funnel" (a rounded 30" step that requires stacking rocks for stock vehicles).  From there, the climb is up a couple more steps to the "West Rim Boulevard", which is a rocky road the feeds several other trails.  After turning down onto West Rim, the trail travels along the rim on an alternately rocky and sandy road that is on the rim.  You leave the rim to travel between a set of evenly spaced pinnacles, called the "Toll Booths" that tower above the trail and have a ledge that can challenge stock rigs.  

A pullout called the "Scenic Loop" has beautiful views of St. George and the airport, and can be a challenge for stock rigs on it's entry steps and a short climb out on dirt.  From there, the challenges are various, winding through a rock-walled labyrinth until you reach the Lunch Room.  Great views from here, surrounded by rock walls.  

There are several challenging obstacles after the Lunch Room, starting with "The Squeeze" that can leave a rock rash on wide vehicles.  The trail ends in an area called the "Rock Garden."  This area has many various obstacles surrounding an open natural courtyard, allowing spectators to walk from one show to the next.  After leaving the trail, the way back is down the Hurricane Sand Dunes, affording a chance to increase the pace and blow out the dust.

West Rim Lite more

Most of West Rim Light Trail tours the rim of Sand Mountain, with spectacular views of Pine Valley Mountain, Sand Hollow Reservoir, St. George City, Warner Valley and the Hurricane Cliffs. The trail is mainly sandy road, with a few slickrock challenges and a sand dunes crossing. Stock 4x4 vehicles with properly inflated tires will enjoy this trail with a few challenges to prove their capabilities. Most of the trail is scenic four-wheeling. 

West Rim Lite Trail begins at the Washington Dam staging area. A sandy wash is followed to a dirt two-track, leading up the side of Sand Mountain. After a sandy section with a marked intersection, the trail leads up to “The Steps” obstacle, with progressively bigger steps to the right. Almost immediately after The Steps, the trail comes to “The Funnel,” which is a 36-inch high ledge with no bypass. Careful rock stacking is required for stock-height vehicles, and long rear overhang vehicles may drag their bumpers or hitches. There are a few smaller ledges before reaching the hilltop. The next section, known as “West Rim Boulevard,” is the main route along the ridge of Sand Mountain. West Rim Trail will depart to the right at a marked intersection. After a bumpy section, the trail travels the edge of West Rim with beautiful views of Warner Valley. Next is a group of large monoliths called “The Toll Gates,” followed by a steep rocky climb to meet back with West Rim Boulevard at the top. Along the Boulevard, views of Warner Valley, Arizona Strip, Pine Valley Mountain, Sand Hollow Reservoir, Zion Park, and Hurricane Cliffs surround you. At the end of West Rim Boulevard, there is a descent to the mesa at the top of “Competition Hill.” Here, the trail takes a tricky S-turn down the sand and then traverses the Hurricane Sand Dunes before reaching the East Rim Trail. More sand, slickrock steps and dirt trails complete the East Rim section of this trail. West Rim Light Trail ends east of Sand Hollow Reservoir.

Scenery

Incredible views of Warner Valley and the city of St. George are along West Rim.  Beautiful views of Zion Park, Warner Valley, Arizona Strip, Sand Hollow Reservoir, and snow-capped Pine Valley Mountains surround you from the West Rim Boulevard. 

Surface

Most of West Rim Lite trail is on sandy two-track road.  The initial climb from the Washington Dam staging area is sand and clay.  There are sandstone (slickrock) ledges along the way, and a loose stone climb from the rim up to West Rim Boulevard. There is a downhill sand dune crossing.  

Trail Details

The Steps, a ledgy section has variable difficulty depending on the route chosen.  Left is easy, and to the right is progressively more difficult.  The Funnel is a rounded 30" ledge that requires a few rocks stacked for stock height vehicles.  A loose stone climb from West Rim up to West Rim Boulevard requires 4 wheel drive.  The sand dunes crossing at the midpoint is downhill.  The East Rim section after the dunes has several ledgy areas with up to 12" ledges.

Smurfette more

::: Smurfette :::

One of the original trails at Sand Hollow has essentially passed by the wayside as newer trails have been broke open but this classic comes back to life at Trail Hero in 2022. Most people have never heard of the Smurfette trail, which is rated 6. It may be a little too much for larger full sized/full bodied vehicles, but jeeps and mid sized rigs will have a TON of fun.

Trail Details
Start at the Sand Hollow Tunnel and work your way between the Arrowhead Trail and Chain Reaction. once you get into the rocks, it is step after step and climb after climb until you get to the top. Once at the top, you come out next to the end of Double Sammy and pop out right at the Chute. Riders will attempt the Chute if you wish (Which is about the half way point of the trail). Next you will venture over and cross the top of Arrowhead, Front Range, and the start of The Fallen as you work your way along the fenceline. From there you work down towards the old Green Gate hitting obstacles that are a lot of fun.

Nephis Twist more

This trail is newer to the Southern Utah Trail Network. Nephi Twist starts out in the town of Toquerville and wonders through the ravines in the back country to the La Verkin Bluffs. There are several obstacles which become easier with a locker, but are possible with good driving and no locker. If you want to increase your level of driving, there are several short obstacles that require lockers front and rear, but the trail bypasses these on regular occasion. Once at the top of the La Verkin Bluffs, trail riders will make their way across the bluff and down to the La Verkin Creek which will make a perfect lunch stop. From there, you take the same path back across the bluff and down to Toquerville.   

They will also learn a lot about the area.  CB radios are recommended, in that much of the information about the area will be during the drive.

Scenery

Much of the wonderful scenery that can be enjoyed  are once you reach the top of the bluff.  From this point, you will be able to see across Hurricane Valley, into the Desert Reserve, and look down upon Toquerville and La Verkin. Once to the edge of the Bluff, you can view La Verkin Creek from a birds eye view and see all the way back into the back side of Zion National Park.

Surface

Gravel Road, Rocky and loose dirt accents and descends, dry river crossings, and fun, off camber, two track trails.

Nephi Twist is a new trail that is roughly 16 miles long. Bring a lunch and have some fun in this Utah Back Country that was previously not available until now.

Resurrection more

This extremely fun trail features a series of small slicklock waterfalls with plenty of challenges.  You'll find cattle bones, caves, and a tombstone that shows this trail is rich in history, even though it is new to the mountain. The trail has three sections. and all three sections has been completed by a Jeep with no lockers and 35" tires. We recommend that you have at least one locker.

The first section is a sandy wash that leads to several small ledges and climbs that make the trail pretty fun as you climb your way in elevation. About half way in the first section is Skully's Pinch, an obstacle that requires drivers to stay as far left as possible because the Pinch comes from a rock that sticks out, wanting to lay claim to your rear fender panel. Out of the 40 vehicles we have taken through this trail, easy spotting has allowed 100% safe passage without body damage. There are several spots that you can increase your level of difficulty but the original trail guides vehicles around those spots.

The second section comes after you get out of the Canyon and over to Jacob's Draw. It has a series of roughly 6-8 obstacles that are pretty fun as you climb even higher in elevation. All obstacles are kept in mind for vehicles with only 1 locker, even though we have driven it many times without any lockers.

The third section takes you across the dunes to a bluff on Sand Mountain which is situated between two dunes. This bluff contains a tombstone for whom we will never know. Additionally, the bluff has a cave that has been cut into it, fun for the kids to explore. The cave goes about 25 feet horizontally into the bluff. It is a dead end and doesn't contain any other cavities. 

Scenery

Nice high desert scenery, with some views of Sand Hollow Reservoir and Zion Park.

Surface

Sandy Roads for the first part, then steep slickrock waterfalls, then rocky gulches with steep waterfalls and ledges.

Trail Details

There are a couple of 7- and 8-rated optional obstacles on this trail.  Body and drivetrain damage is likely for these harder obstacles.  We suggest each vehicle come prepared with at least 1 locker and 35" tires although the trail can be completed with 33" tires.

Plan B...FG more

Plan B is located at the far south edge of the Hurricane Sand Dunes.  The trip from the Hurricane Water Tanks is bumpy until you reach the upper dunes, and then you get to try out your dunes capability.  Once you reach the trail, you start right off with an off-camber ditch that leans you close to a rock ledge on your right.  Then, you get to climb a max steep hill, then drop down to a max steep drop and a max off-camber turn with an imposing rock on the right.  From there, the trail delivers continuous challenges and incredible scenery.  After the trail, you can drive down the dunes and enjoy the views of Sand Hollow Reservoir with Zion Park in the background.

Scenery

Plan B takes you far out past the sand dunes of Sand Mountain.  It is a very scenic drive through the sand dunes or across the top of West Rim and down to the edge of the dunes.  Plan B meanders its way through a few challenging hills and washes, then follows the edge of Sand Mountain with big views of the Arizona Strip and Warner Valley below. 

Surface

Sand dunes to the entrance, then slickrock with ledges, cracks, steep walls, and off-camber shelf roads.  Return is via the sand dunes.

Trail Details

After the trip up the dunes to the entry, the steep climb and drop-in sometimes catch drivers off guard.  There are two off-camber turns that most drivers find unnerving.  The "Tilt a Whirl" is an off-camber narrow shelf that is poised above a thirty-foot drop-off.  There are some optional obstacles to give the trail a little more of a punch. A highlight of this scenic but challenging drive is the arch found along the cliff-side.  This is the perfect spot for lunch before turning back.  And of course, we have to find some more obstacles on our way. Rigs should have a lift and a minimum of 31" tires and a rear locker would be a plus.  If you choose to do some of the optional obstacles, then 33" tires would be best, with both front and rear lockers.

Sliplock Gulch more

This extremely fun trail features a series of steep slicklock waterfalls with plenty of challenges.  The trail has three sections. 

The first section is the scenic rim road from the dunes to the bottom of the gulch. It has a couple of steep waterfalls that will build your confidence on the slickrock.  
The trail enters the second section after crossing into the bottom of the gulch.  After entering the gulch, you will come to a series of tight climbs.  The second one is Horseshoe Falls.  Take the bypass if you want to keep your sheet metal straight. After completing the rest of the climbs in that gulch, the trail exits the gulch and takes the road back down the west side, until turning west and travelling past the start of John's Trail.  There is a steep sand drop into a wide slickrock gulch that begins the third section.


The third section starts with a couple of tough ledges.  Bypasses are commonly used on them.  Towards the end of this section, there is an optional area with a couple of climbs and a tight slot before a wide V-notch. Careful driving is needed to avoid body damage.

This challenging trail is a lot of fun.  Be careful, and take the bypasses when you are not confident about an obstacle.

Scenery

Nice high desert scenery, with some views of Sand Hollow Reservoir and Zion Park.

Surface

Sandy Roads for the first part, then steep slickrock waterfalls, then rocky gulches with steep waterfalls and ledges.

Trail Details

There are many 7- and 8-rated optional obstacles on this trail.  The most noted is the Horseshoe Falls in the second section.  It has been known to have tip overs and breaks regularly.  If you attempt it, you should probably have a strap with a few big guys on it to keep the front end down.  Body and driveline damage is likely.  At the end of the trail, there are several options, including a tight chute, steep waterfall, and a wide V-notch, that have all caused damage.

Milt's Mile Lite more

Milt’s Mile Lite

Most of Milt’s Mile Light Trail follows along the edge of Milt’s Mile Trail. Several sections are part of the original Milt’s Mile, and a couple of sections are shared with the current Milt’s Mile. This trail affords spectacular views of Pine Valley Mountain, Sand Hollow Reservoir, Hurricane Cliffs, and Zion Park. During the event, there is a great spot to watch the “entertainment” when the 6-rated Milt’s Mile vehicles negotiate a tough section in the canyon below. A couple of intimidating sections at the beginning, earn a 4 rating. With good spotting on a few obstacles, stock high clearance 4x4 vehicles with competent drivers can successfully negotiate this trail. Much of the trail is easy slickrock and some sand.

Scenery

Beautiful views of the Sand Hollow Reservoir immediately to the north, with Zion Park in the distance.  Pine Valley Mountains are a few miles to the west.  Hurricane Mesa is to the East, with the rock formations of lower Sand Mountain nestled in the sand dunes immediately to the west.

Surface

Slickrock (sandstone) with several sections of two-track and some sand dunes at the end.

Trail Details

Milt’s Mile Light Trail begins at the Hurricane Water Tanks staging area. The access route follows along the north boundary fence on a two-track sand trail for 3/4 mile, turning south into a sandy wash, and up to a slickrock bowl where the fun begins. A couple of slickrock climbs provide a good warm up and an opportunity to see what stock-clearance vehicles are capable of doing. The bowl looks pretty tough, but careful driving and good spotting will award drivers with the feeling of conquering it. From here, the trail will go up a ledgy road, giving drivers a chance to check their clearance in a couple of spots. An overlook stop near the top of this section, is where you can watch the show as the 6-rated Milt’s Mile vehicles negotiate tough obstacles in the canyon below. The next section drops down a couple of ledges into a small canyon, and then up a bypass around “The Crack” obstacle on Milt’s Mile. The route continues up a wide section of slickrock, then crosses over a dry wash. A short trip along the base of some nice rock formations, including a large hoodoo, and you are out of the canyon. Be sure to stop at this point and enjoy the views looking back. From here, cross over a broken fence line, and head west 3/4 mile, then north to a cattle-guard crossing. Follow the sandy road north 1 1/4 miles to arrive at the Hurricane Water Tanks staging area.

West Rim more

West Rim is one of the most popular trails offered for Trail Hero.  What makes it so popular is that if you are with a group that has a wide range of vehicles, from stock to wild, you will be able to tour together and find something that will challenge you.  There are many places where you can drive your stock rig up right next to the built rigs and watch them struggle to make the hardline.  You all will be amazed at the incredible 360-degree views of Sand Hollow, Zion Park, Pine Valley Reservoir, St. George, The Arizona Strip, and Hurricane Cliffs. 


The trail stages at the Hurricane Water Tanks, then heads over to the lower sand dunes by the golf course.  After going down and up the dunes, the course continues to the first slickrock obstacle, The Steps.  As the name implies, this is a set of ledges that will test your suspension and driving ability.  Like many of the obstacles on West Rim, there are easy, hard, and very hard lines.  Lunch is usually held at, appropriately enough, the "Lunch Room," an alcove surrounded on 3 sides by tall rock formations, and a nice viewpoint of Warner Valley and the Arizona Strip to the south.  From the Lunch Room, there is plenty of 4-wheeling left.  The "Rock Garden" is at the end of West Rim Trail.  From there, the return route is down Hurricane Sand Dunes.  

This popular trail tends to fill up fast. 

Scenery

Incredible 360-degree vistas of Sand Hollow Reservoir, Zion Park, Pine Valley Mountains, Warner Valley, the Arizona Strip, Hurricane Cliffs, and Hurricane Sand dunes.

Surface

Sand dunes and sandy roads, then slickrock ledges and two-track rocky roads.

Trail Details

There a many obstacles on this 4-rated trail, with twice as many options just off the trail.  The trail starts with "The Steps" (slickrock ledges) and then to "The Funnel" (a rounded 30" step that requires stacking rocks for stock vehicles).  From there, the climb is up a couple more steps to the "West Rim Boulevard", which is a rocky road the feeds several other trails.  After turning down onto West Rim, the trail travels along the rim on an alternately rocky and sandy road that is on the rim.  You leave the rim to travel between a set of evenly spaced pinnacles, called the "Toll Booths" that tower above the trail and have a ledge that can challenge stock rigs.  

A pullout called the "Scenic Loop" has beautiful views of St. George and the airport, and can be a challenge for stock rigs on it's entry steps and a short climb out on dirt.  From there, the challenges are various, winding through a rock-walled labyrinth until you reach the Lunch Room.  Great views from here, surrounded by rock walls.  

There are several challenging obstacles after the Lunch Room, starting with "The Squeeze" that can leave a rock rash on wide vehicles.  The trail ends in an area called the "Rock Garden."  This area has many various obstacles surrounding an open natural courtyard, allowing spectators to walk from one show to the next.  After leaving the trail, the way back is down the Hurricane Sand Dunes, affording a chance to increase the pace and blow out the dust.

The trail is mainly sandy road, with a few slickrock challenges and a sand dunes crossing. Stock 4x4 vehicles with properly inflated tires will enjoy this trail with a few challenges to prove their capabilities. Most of the trail is scenic four-wheeling. 

West Rim Lite Trail begins at the Washington Dam staging area. A sandy wash is followed to a dirt two-track, leading up the side of Sand Mountain. After a sandy section with a marked intersection, the trail leads up to “The Steps” obstacle, with progressively bigger steps to the right. Almost immediately after The Steps, the trail comes to “The Funnel,” which is a 36-inch high ledge with no bypass. Careful rock stacking is required for stock-height vehicles, and long rear overhang vehicles may drag their bumpers or hitches. There are a few smaller ledges before reaching the hilltop. The next section, known as “West Rim Boulevard,” is the main route along the ridge of Sand Mountain. West Rim Trail will depart to the right at a marked intersection. After a bumpy section, the trail travels the edge of West Rim with beautiful views of Warner Valley. Next is a group of large monoliths called “The Toll Gates,” followed by a steep rocky climb to meet back with West Rim Boulevard at the top. Along the Boulevard, views of Warner Valley, Arizona Strip, Pine Valley Mountain, Sand Hollow Reservoir, Zion Park, and Hurricane Cliffs surround you. At the end of West Rim Boulevard, there is a descent to the mesa at the top of “Competition Hill.” Here, the trail takes a tricky S-turn down the sand and then traverses the Hurricane Sand Dunes before reaching the East Rim Trail. More sand, slickrock steps and dirt trails complete the East Rim section of this trail. West Rim Light Trail ends east of Sand Hollow Reservoir.

Scenery

Incredible views of Warner Valley and the city of St. George are along West Rim.  Beautiful views of Zion Park, Warner Valley, Arizona Strip, Sand Hollow Reservoir, and snow-capped Pine Valley Mountains surround you from the West Rim Boulevard. 

Surface

Most of West Rim Lite trail is on sandy two-track road.  The initial climb from the Washington Dam staging area is sand and clay.  There are sandstone (slickrock) ledges along the way, and a loose stone climb from the rim up to West Rim Boulevard. There is a downhill sand dune crossing.  

Trail Details

The Steps, a ledgy section has variable difficulty depending on the route chosen.  Left is easy, and to the right is progressively more difficult.  The Funnel is a rounded 30" ledge that requires a few rocks stacked for stock height vehicles.  A loose stone climb from West Rim up to West Rim Boulevard requires 4 wheel drive.  The sand dunes crossing at the midpoint is downhill.  The East Rim section after the dunes has several ledgy areas with up to 12" ledges.

Ram Rally Renegade more

The trail is reserved for the Red Rock Ram Rally, to ensure Full Size vehicles and Ram Trucks have a dedicated trail. You may join if you do not drive a Ram Truck, but please be aware that you may be traveling with full sized vehicles.

The Ram Rally Renegade Trail got its name for drivers who don't want to sit on one trail all day.  Instead, Renegade hits the hot "optional" obstacles, driving from one end of Sand Mountain to the other.  The trail starts off with a trip up the "Launch Pad" which is almost impossible to crawl.  From there, you go over and give Johnny's Hot Tub and the steep climb next to it a try. The obstacles keep coming until you reach the 70' max steep chute at the end of Double Sammy.  For an 8-rated trail, this one will test drivers and rigs to the max.

Scenery

On Renegade, you get to see it all, since it goes from one corner to the next.  Panoramic views of all the area surrounding Sand Mountain and the Hurricane Sand Dunes.

Surface

Sand dunes, steep slickrock, slickrock waterfalls, and dirt roads.

Ladies Run-Resurrection more

This is the LADIES RUN, which requires LADIES to drive. If you are a guy and plan to drive, I suggest you also plan to wear a Dress and Wig...

This extremely fun trail features a series of small slicklock waterfalls with plenty of challenges.  You'll find cattle bones, caves, and a tombstone that shows this trail is rich in history, even though it is new to the mountain. The trail has three sections. and all three sections has been completed by a Jeep with no lockers and 35" tires. We recommend that you have at least one locker.

The first section is a sandy wash that leads to several small ledges and climbs that make the trail pretty fun as you climb your way in elevation. About half way in the first section is Skully's Pinch, an obstacle that requires drivers to stay as far left as possible because the Pinch comes from a rock that sticks out, wanting to lay claim to your rear fender panel. Out of the 40 vehicles we have taken through this trail, easy spotting has allowed 100% safe passage without body damage. There are several spots that you can increase your level of difficulty but the original trail guides vehicles around those spots.

The second section comes after you get out of the Canyon and over to Jacob's Draw. It has a series of roughly 6-8 obstacles that are pretty fun as you climb even higher in elevation. All obstacles are kept in mind for vehicles with only 1 locker, even though we have driven it many times without any lockers.

The third section takes you across the dunes to a bluff on Sand Mountain which is situated between two dunes. This bluff contains a tombstone for whom we will never know. Additionally, the bluff has a cave that has been cut into it, fun for the kids to explore. The cave goes about 25 feet horizontally into the bluff. It is a dead end and doesn't contain any other cavities. 

Scenery

Nice high desert scenery, with some views of Sand Hollow Reservoir and Zion Park.

Surface

Sandy Roads for the first part, then steep slickrock waterfalls, then rocky gulches with steep waterfalls and ledges.

Trail Details

There are a couple of 7- and 8-rated optional obstacles on this trail.  Body and drivetrain damage is likely for these harder obstacles.  We suggest each vehicle come prepared with at least 1 locker and 35" tires although the trail can be completed with 33" tires.

Milt’s Mile Lite

Most of Milt’s Mile Light Trail follows along the edge of Milt’s Mile Trail. Several sections are part of the original Milt’s Mile, and a couple of sections are shared with the current Milt’s Mile. This trail affords spectacular views of Pine Valley Mountain, Sand Hollow Reservoir, Hurricane Cliffs, and Zion Park. During the event, there is a great spot to watch the “entertainment” when the 6-rated Milt’s Mile vehicles negotiate a tough section in the canyon below. A couple of intimidating sections at the beginning, earn a 4 rating. With good spotting on a few obstacles, stock high clearance 4x4 vehicles with competent drivers can successfully negotiate this trail. Much of the trail is easy slickrock and some sand.

Scenery

Beautiful views of the Sand Hollow Reservoir immediately to the north, with Zion Park in the distance.  Pine Valley Mountains are a few miles to the west.  Hurricane Mesa is to the East, with the rock formations of lower Sand Mountain nestled in the sand dunes immediately to the west.

Surface

Slickrock (sandstone) with several sections of two-track and some sand dunes at the end.

Trail Details

Milt’s Mile Light Trail begins at the Hurricane Water Tanks staging area. The access route follows along the north boundary fence on a two-track sand trail for 3/4 mile, turning south into a sandy wash, and up to a slickrock bowl where the fun begins. A couple of slickrock climbs provide a good warm up and an opportunity to see what stock-clearance vehicles are capable of doing. The bowl looks pretty tough, but careful driving and good spotting will award drivers with the feeling of conquering it. From here, the trail will go up a ledgy road, giving drivers a chance to check their clearance in a couple of spots. An overlook stop near the top of this section, is where you can watch the show as the 6-rated Milt’s Mile vehicles negotiate tough obstacles in the canyon below. The next section drops down a couple of ledges into a small canyon, and then up a bypass around “The Crack” obstacle on Milt’s Mile. The route continues up a wide section of slickrock, then crosses over a dry wash. A short trip along the base of some nice rock formations, including a large hoodoo, and you are out of the canyon. Be sure to stop at this point and enjoy the views looking back. From here, cross over a broken fence line, and head west 3/4 mile, then north to a cattle-guard crossing. Follow the sandy road north 1 1/4 miles to arrive at the Hurricane Water Tanks staging area.

Plan B...FG more

Plan B is located at the far south edge of the Hurricane Sand Dunes.  The trip from the Hurricane Water Tanks is bumpy until you reach the upper dunes, and then you get to try out your dunes capability.  Once you reach the trail, you start right off with an off-camber ditch that leans you close to a rock ledge on your right.  Then, you get to climb a max steep hill, then drop down to a max steep drop and a max off-camber turn with an imposing rock on the right.  From there, the trail delivers continuous challenges and incredible scenery.  After the trail, you can drive down the dunes and enjoy the views of Sand Hollow Reservoir with Zion Park in the background.

Scenery

Plan B takes you far out past the sand dunes of Sand Mountain.  It is a very scenic drive through the sand dunes or across the top of West Rim and down to the edge of the dunes.  Plan B meanders its way through a few challenging hills and washes, then follows the edge of Sand Mountain with big views of the Arizona Strip and Warner Valley below. 

Surface

Sand dunes to the entrance, then slickrock with ledges, cracks, steep walls, and off-camber shelf roads.  Return is via the sand dunes.

Trail Details

After the trip up the dunes to the entry, the steep climb and drop-in sometimes catch drivers off guard.  There are two off-camber turns that most drivers find unnerving.  The "Tilt a Whirl" is an off-camber narrow shelf that is poised above a thirty-foot drop-off.  There are some optional obstacles to give the trail a little more of a punch. A highlight of this scenic but challenging drive is the arch found along the cliff-side.  This is the perfect spot for lunch before turning back.  And of course, we have to find some more obstacles on our way. Rigs should have a lift and a minimum of 31" tires and a rear locker would be a plus.  If you choose to do some of the optional obstacles, then 33" tires would be best, with both front and rear lockers.

West Rim more

West Rim is one of the most popular trails offered for Trail Hero.  What makes it so popular is that if you are with a group that has a wide range of vehicles, from stock to wild, you will be able to tour together and find something that will challenge you.  There are many places where you can drive your stock rig up right next to the built rigs and watch them struggle to make the hardline.  You all will be amazed at the incredible 360-degree views of Sand Hollow, Zion Park, Pine Valley Reservoir, St. George, The Arizona Strip, and Hurricane Cliffs. 


The trail stages at the Hurricane Water Tanks, then heads over to the lower sand dunes by the golf course.  After going down and up the dunes, the course continues to the first slickrock obstacle, The Steps.  As the name implies, this is a set of ledges that will test your suspension and driving ability.  Like many of the obstacles on West Rim, there are easy, hard, and very hard lines.  Lunch is usually held at, appropriately enough, the "Lunch Room," an alcove surrounded on 3 sides by tall rock formations, and a nice viewpoint of Warner Valley and the Arizona Strip to the south.  From the Lunch Room, there is plenty of 4-wheeling left.  The "Rock Garden" is at the end of West Rim Trail.  From there, the return route is down Hurricane Sand Dunes.  

This popular trail tends to fill up fast. 

Scenery

Incredible 360-degree vistas of Sand Hollow Reservoir, Zion Park, Pine Valley Mountains, Warner Valley, the Arizona Strip, Hurricane Cliffs, and Hurricane Sand dunes.

Surface

Sand dunes and sandy roads, then slickrock ledges and two-track rocky roads.

Trail Details

There a many obstacles on this 4-rated trail, with twice as many options just off the trail.  The trail starts with "The Steps" (slickrock ledges) and then to "The Funnel" (a rounded 30" step that requires stacking rocks for stock vehicles).  From there, the climb is up a couple more steps to the "West Rim Boulevard", which is a rocky road the feeds several other trails.  After turning down onto West Rim, the trail travels along the rim on an alternately rocky and sandy road that is on the rim.  You leave the rim to travel between a set of evenly spaced pinnacles, called the "Toll Booths" that tower above the trail and have a ledge that can challenge stock rigs.  

A pullout called the "Scenic Loop" has beautiful views of St. George and the airport, and can be a challenge for stock rigs on it's entry steps and a short climb out on dirt.  From there, the challenges are various, winding through a rock-walled labyrinth until you reach the Lunch Room.  Great views from here, surrounded by rock walls.  

There are several challenging obstacles after the Lunch Room, starting with "The Squeeze" that can leave a rock rash on wide vehicles.  The trail ends in an area called the "Rock Garden."  This area has many various obstacles surrounding an open natural courtyard, allowing spectators to walk from one show to the next.  After leaving the trail, the way back is down the Hurricane Sand Dunes, affording a chance to increase the pace and blow out the dust.
