This weekend, Chad heads back to the San Rafael Swell with our great friends at Lone Peak 4 Wheelers Jeep Club for our latest #OHV50 trail. We hit the Black Dragon Canyon, a natural treasure and a Jeepers paradise you definitely don’t want to sleep on. Hone your skills, meet new friends and enjoy amazing adventures in rock crawling with this awesome Jeep club!
This beautiful trail features petroglyphs, including one of its namesake. Also, DYK in the early days of ranching on the San Rafael Swell, Black Dragon Wash was a wagon road connecting the Sinbad Country and Cottonwood Wash with the community of Green River. That road has now eroded away until it is now rated a moderate 4X4 road. We like history!
And this week, we’re also showing you how you can support the gateway communities near these awesome trails — where to stock up, eat and stay when you visit. Check out Rays Tavern, The Tamarisk Restaurant, Melon Vine Food Store, Crosscut Brewery & Convenience Store and Grogg’s Brewing to help grow our rural communities’ economies!
Reece Stein takes us to Jordan Narrows Trail for this week’s “Where To” segment. The parkway meanders through both urban and rural environments, and with the parks, wildlife, boardwalks and flowers you can enjoy, you will see why we recommend this trail for your next outdoor adventure.
In this week’s “What’s New” segment, Scott Huntsman installs mods on a 1956 Chevy pickup. He chooses a new Edelbrock carburetor and expertly calibrates this epic street rod with fine tuning only our Tunex expert can show you!
Chad heads to Eagles Landing Veterans Golf Tournament in Mesquite, Nevada in this week’s “Along the Way.” The tournament benefits the Utah National Guard Charitable Trust, which provides directly to the families of veterans. This four-person scramble style event is a favorite for golfers of all skill levels to enjoy a leisurely golf game where the real winners are the veterans.
