Double Sammy by GenRight more

::: Double Sammy :::

Non-stop rapid fire challenges with some extra-hard options, Double Sammy packs about as many difficult challenges as possible into a relatively short distance.  It also has fantastic scenery.  The views from the trail are beautiful, but the drivers are honed in on the trail 10 feet ahead of them anytime they are in motion.  Lots of off camber and max steep climbs and descents.  

Scenery

Fantastic views of Sand Hollow Reservoir just to the north, with Zion Park in the distance.  Hurricane Cliffs to the east, and Pine Valley Mountains to the West.

Surface

Sand Dunes up to the start of the slickrock (sandstone) cracks and ledges.  After a 70-foot max steep chute option, return is down the dunes back to Sand Hollow State Park.

Trail Details

Double Sammy will begin at Sand Hollow State Park and make its way up some deep sand dunes until it turns left into the nearby rocky sandstone. The first obstacle consists of a vertical wall and a consecutive series of steps which are by passable. The trail will meander its way through the sandstone cliffs with a beautiful and picturesque view of Sand Hollow Reservoir. There is an abundance of descents and accents. Midway through the trail, there is an optional obstacle called the Traverse as well as a pretty impressive and tricky 70-foot chute that is also by-passable. Rigs should have front and rear lockers, 33″ tires, and a winch. Expect possible body damage and/or mechanical breakdowns.

Date: Thursday, October 4th 
Time: 8:30 AM Staging, Departure at 9 AM
Location: Sand Hollow – Tunnel (Vehicle Passes MUST be obtained at Registration FIRST, You will be charged for entering the park without a pass)

The Maze by TeraFlex more

::: The Maze by TeraFlex :::

The Maze has quickly become known as one of St. George’s ‘must do’ trails for those who enjoy a more technical and hard-core challenge. If you aren’t bothered by steep ascents and descents, extremely off-camber situations, and exposure to 1,200-foot cliff edges, then this trail is for you!

The obstacles come one after another with consistent difficulty.  As you approach the first obstacle (The Drop), you may glance down to your right and between two rocks to notice that you are within a few feet of a cliff that is 1,000 feet above the valley below.  This is a trail to delight those who can appreciate adrenaline at 1 mile an hour.  

Scenery

For short distances between obstacles, drivers can pause to see fantastic views of Warner Valley almost straight down from the trails edge.  In the distance you can see the Arizona Strip.  The Strip is the approximately 50-mile strip of land between the Utah/Arizona border and the Grand Canyon.  There are several mountain peaks in the Strip.

Surface

For Trail Hero, the Maze is accessed from Sand Hollow State Park, going through the tunnel to access Hurricane Sand Dunes.  After driving up near the top of the Dunes, there is a short descent to the trail poised on a cliff above Warner Valley.  The majority of the trail is slickrock, with some sandy and rocky areas between the slickrock obstacles. The return trip is down the dunes to Sand Hollow State Park 

Trail Details

The first obstacle, known as ‘The Drop’, is just the beginning of an unrelenting series of white-knuckling and adrenaline pumping challenges, the hardest of which is the climb of an intimidating double-fall, perched above a towering 1,200-foot drop. And if that is not enough for you, there is the opportunity to attempt ‘The Soup Bowl’ near the end.

The Maze can be accessed from either Washington Dam staging area via West Rim Scenic route or alternatively from Sand Hollow Reservoir through the sand dunes. Rigs should be equipped with two lockers and a minimum of 33-inch tires as well as a winch. Short wheel-base rigs are not recommended for this trail. Expect possible body damage and/or mechanical breakdown.

Joint Effort by CargoGlide more

::: Joint Effort by CargoGlide :::

Joint Effort starts with a sandy drive up a wide wash, then the fun begins!  This trail has many steep slickrock climbs and dropoffs, with lots of of off camber to add more challenge.  Rollovers are common.  There are a few slot canyons that add to the fun.  At one point, the trail crosses the Double Sammy trail in a narrow canyon with sandy bottom. Each consecutive obstacle will be increasingly difficult, so tighten those belts, and be ready for some fun! 

Scenery

If you take a little time to catch your breath between the obstacles, you can look behind you and see beautiful views of Sand Hollow Reservoir with Zion Park in the distance.  You can also see the Pine Valley Mountains.  They are usually capped with snow during Winter 4x4 Jamboree.

Surface

Slickrock walls and sandy bottoms

Trail Details

This trail is a series of big obstacles, with each one more difficult than the last.  The short distance between the major obstacles has some challenges to keep you entertained.  Once you make it through, there is a trip down the sand dunes to clear out the pipes.

Date: Thursday, October 4th 
Time: 8:30 AM Staging, Departure at 9 AM
