RIDE DESCRIPTIONS

TRIP #1  Taste of Ticaboo (9:00 AM)

Intermediate Trail Riding open to all ATVS/UTVS – street legal only (75 miles)

Highlights: This ride is on the BLM Henry Mountains range. Visitors will begin at Ticaboo Lodge and enter a canyon to the old mines, drop into Shitamarang Canyon, and exit by way of climbing out of the mine area into our “Jurassic” playing ground where we will rockhound for coprolite (petrified dinosaur dung), dinosaur bones, agate, jasper, and petrified wood.

We’ll then traverse the mesa top to the Badlands, where we can kick around for fossils like Devil’s Toenails (petrified clams) and petrified oysters. We’ll venture toward the Burr Trail with a stop in Eggnog to see the Butt Canyon petroglyphs, then once on the Burr Trails, we’ll study for rock art, and search for petrified wood. Crossing the Burr Trail, we’ll explore the Hall’s Creek Overlook, where you can see Brimhall Arch, and double arch that lies in Capital Reef National Park, then continue through more Morrison Formation back toward Ticaboo, culminating at The Narrows where we can shoot the machines through a slot canyon.

Trailhead: The trailhead is right behind BaseCamp, next to the Ticaboo Lodge, so no need to trailer the machines.

The Trail:  This long route is primarily on county trails and BLM trails, well graded, and some maintained gravel roads. The Burr Trail is paved.

TRIP #2  The Mount Hillers Loop (9:00 AM start time)

Intermediate Trail Riding open to all ATVS/UTVS (90 miles)

Highlights: This ride is on the BLM Henry Mountains range. Visitors will begin at Ticaboo Lodge and enter a canyon to the old mines, drop into Shitamarang Canyon, and exit by way of climbing out of the mine area into our “Jurassic” playing ground where we will rockhound for coprolite (petrified dinosaur dung), dinosaur bones, agate, jasper, and petrified wood.

We’ll then traverse the mesa top to the Badlands, where we can kick around for fossils like Devil’s Toenails (petrified clams) and petrified oysters. Whereas the “Taste of Ticaboo” leaves south from here, the “Mount Hillers Loop” will turn north toward the Henry Mountains. We’ll tour the old Starr Springs ranch, veer off to a petrified forest where rather large stumps of petrified trees exist, then loop around Mount Hillers to the east, enjoying the beautiful red rock views from Gold Creek and The Ghost Ridge, circling around the north end of Mount Hillers, then as we continue on the west side between Mount Hillers and Mount Pennel, we’ll come across Bastion Reservoir, the Quaking Aspens, Stanton Pass, then back to the Badlands as we follow our earlier trail back to Ticaboo.

Trailhead: The trailhead is right behind BaseCamp, next to the Ticaboo Lodge, so no need to trailer the machines.

The Trail:  This long route is primarily on county trails and BLM trails, well graded, and some maintained gravel roads. A small section of Hwy 276 needs to be driven due to a blockage on the northern trail.
