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.

Nephi's 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.

Trail Details

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.
