Chad and some very special friends christen the Poison Springs Loop in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, a new eight mile route that connects the trail system and is now open to side by sides and ATVs for the first time!
The new trail system opened for these machines on Feb. 16, and we couldn’t be more excited to show it to you! From epic views you simply can’t beat to lively water crossings (the Dirty Devil River to be exact!) to notable features like Butch Cassidy’s inscription and naturally, towering rock formations, the sheer vastness and unrivaled beauty of this area will knock your socks off!
Base camp is the town of Ticaboo, where we stayed at the Ticaboo Lodge and enjoyed awesome rentals from Base Camp Adventure Center. Plus there’s plenty of food options at Moki’s and several other nearby spots in Bullfrog.
It took a village to make this happen and the efforts of OHV advocates must be applauded. Now, we know our OG fans understand this, but some of our newest fans may not, so we really must restate how important it is to stay on the designated trails and practice good trail ethics while you’re out exploring!
Big thanks to our friends and sponsors including Utah State Parks OHV Program, Eagles Landing Travel Plazas, Steadmans, Blue Ribbon Coalition, Jorgensen’s, Ticaboo Lodge and Garfield County for joining us on this ride and enabling us to bring you more adventures like this each week.
