SandThraxx more

Easily known as one of the first of Sand Hollow's Toughest Trails, the challenge is often not even featured in other events due to it's extreme nature. This is where the big boys come to play. This trail should only be attempted by highly skilled drivers with something to prove to themselves or their buddies. Bring your camera's because you are sure to get some good footage. Be expected to roll and/or break. Sandthrax is gnarly.

Scenery

Towards east rim you drop into the canyon of Sandtrax. Look for wildlife in the area, or a cow or two that are grazing just below Molly’s Nipple.

Surface

Sand and sandstone obstacles that are cute, adorable, and flat out going to eat you for lunch if you don’t put your tires in the right lines.  Be prepared for rock rash, you’re going to get up close and personal with Sand Mountain.

Trail Details

The trail departs the fence line at the “green gate” and travels south toward East Rim. Take a left at the cattle guard and drop into the wash where you start SandThax.  There is a trail above SandThrax for those not wanting to push their limits on the trail.

Broken Chain more

This trail crosses Chain Reaction and directs drivers straight to full buggy territory.  Very skilled drivers in heavily fortified buggies have succeeded. With this being a NEW and difficult trail, we suggest that this is among the same type of difficulty as Arrowhead, but not as difficult as DeKleined. There are side obstacles that can make it more difficult than all over trails though... if you wanted to push it.  Many rigs have had big fails here.  This trail begins and ends at the bottom of the rock formations just to the south of Sand Hollow State Park.   

Scenery

Pause to take in views of Sand Hollow Reservoir immediately to the south with Zion Park in the distance.  The usually snow-capped Pine Valley Mountains are to the west, and Hurricane Cliffs are to the east. 

Surface

Slickrock canyons, wedges, and ledges.  Some sand hills.

Trail Details

Broken Chain begins in a sandy wash by Sand Hollow Reservoir and detours to the right out of Chain Reaction near the end of lower Chain. The first obstacle is a series of very difficult and tight obstacles that doesn't have any room between them for a break. Once cleared through the first 100 feet, you scale a huge crack and must navigate left across the crack and into another chute. The top of the chute is a good break area with flat parking that spectators can easily access. From there you drive to the hot tubs which is a series of basins formed by wind and water. This is where most rolls and breaks occur. Every bit of this trail is technical and fun. Stick the line and you're a hero, miss it... Well, you'll find out ;)

Nasty Half/Whole more

Nasty Half is just that--nasty. This trail has earned its name and is full of intense climbs and steep waterfalls. It begins in a wash to the south of the dunes at Sand Hollow Reservoir.  The close proximity to the dunes creates a combined hazard of sand upon the slick red sandstone, challenging the skill of any driver. 

Short mix of canyon, sand, and slots that can take all day to get through.

Scenery

Awesome scenery surrounds this trail.  The Hurricane Sand Dunes are along the east edge of Nasty Half.  Sand Hollow Reservoir is to the south, with Zion in the background.   view to the south is... the next big rock with sand on it!

Surface

Slickrock with sand.  Slot canyons and wide sandy canyon bottoms with steep sandhill climbs.

Trail Details

Nasty Half starts off with a tall vertical wall and doesn't let up until you find yourself flooring your way up the side of a sandy hill to resurface on the dunes. There are several undulating slots that require spanning and pose a big challenge trying to stay up and not tip over.

Many rigs have been known as "that rig" (you know, the one that is always breaking down) because there is almost always a guarantee of body damage and or mechanical failure. Rigs should be equipped with 2 lockers and a minimum of 37" tires.

War Machine more

::: War Machine :::

Buggy Territory never has been so fun! This new trail has many difficult spots that could be made easier with Rear Steer, but has been done in several drag axles. Featuring Keilman’s Crack, The Minefield, and more; this trail starts near Iron Man and ends near Joint Effort.

Scenery

Ha! Is that what we are doing? Looking at scenery?! It’s there but not as cool as these new obstacles!

Surface

A mixture of sand, rocks, slickrock climbs, boulders, cracks, and huge holes.

Trail Details

War Machine is rated 10, but could easily have some spots that are more 11 rated. Better to have a winch, minimum of 39’s, and the expectation that body damage is likely. A fun trail that will take every bit of 4 hours with a good group if every obstacle is done.

Date: Friday, October 8th 
Time: 8:30 AM Staging/Breakfast, Departure at 9 AM
Staging Location: Sand Hollow Beach (Vehicle Passes MUST be obtained at Registration FIRST, You will be charged for entering the park without a pass)

DeKleined more

The name comes from a noted buggy driver who, when he was introduced to this new trail, was declined on his first attempt.  Apparently, this is not usual, as he has lead trips on some of the most hardcore trails the southwest has to offer.  So, to poke a little fun at him, we named the trail after him... kinda!  Needless to say, this is the most difficult of the difficult.  Come prepared to be "DeKleined" by this trail.

Scenery

DeKleined is on the east hills above Sand Hollow Reservoir.  Great views of the reservoir and the red sand surrounding it.  To the southwest there are views of the many rock formations that hold most of the buggy trails run by Sand Hollow.  Behind the reservoir, you see the snow-packed peaks of Kolob and Pine Valley mountains.

Surface

Two-track sandy road from the Sand Hollow State Park to the trailhead.  Trail is mostly slickrock, with some sandy areas.  Return from the trail is via the same two-track. 

Trail Details

DeKleined has many of the most difficult climbs and off camber in not only our area, but anywhere!  Be prepared for tip-overs and breakage.

Arrowhead more

This is buggy territory!  The trail earns its rating with climbs up to the top of deep slot canyons with tires spanning both walls.  One slip here, and you will find yourself wedged with the cage on one wall and the tires against the other.  After a short drive on the sandy road along the Sand Hollow State Park, the wash to the south takes you up to bottom of the canyon, where the fun begins. The trail really doesn't go up the bottom of the canyon that much, it goes OVER the bottom of the canyon as you climb up above on the sidewalls.    

Scenery

Beautiful views of Sand Hollow, Zion Park, Hurricane Cliffs, and Pine Valley Mountains.  Lots of incredible scenery within inches of your buggy!

Surface

Sandstone (slickrock) slot canyons and waterfalls.  Huge ledges and some sandy sections.  Lots of max off-camber slickrock.  

Trail Details

Steep and deep slot canyons with varying widths and very difficult transitions.

Time: 8:30 AM Staging, Departure at 9 AM
