Damon Hopper driving on Arrowhead trail

This is buggy territory!  The trail earns its rating with climbs up to the top of deep slot canyons with tires spanning both walls.  One slip here, and you will find yourself wedged with the cage on one wall and the tires against the other.  After a short drive on the sandy road along the Sand Hollow State Park, the wash to the south takes you up to bottom of the canyon, where the fun begins. The trail really doesn't go up the bottom of the canyon that much, it goes OVER the bottom of the canyon as you climb up above on the sidewalls.    

Scenery

Beautiful views of Sand Hollow, Zion Park, Hurricane Cliffs, and Pine Valley Mountains.  Lots of incredible scenery within inches of your buggy!

Surface

Sandstone (slickrock) slot canyons and waterfalls.  Huge ledges and some sandy sections.  Lots of max off-camber slickrock.  

Trail Details

Steep and deep slot canyons with varying widths and very difficult transitions.

Date: Friday, October 5th 
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)
Trail: Arrowhead Canyon

Nasty Half/Whole By Maxxis Tires more

::: Nasty Half/Whole :::

Nasty Half is just that--nasty. This trail has earned its name and is full of intense climbs and steep waterfalls. It begins in a wash to the south of the dunes at Sand Hollow Reservoir.  The close proximity to the dunes creates a combined hazard of sand upon the slick red sandstone, challenging the skill of any driver. 

Short mix of canyon, sand, and slots

Scenery

Awesome scenery surrounds this trail.  The Hurricane Sand Dunes are along the east edge of Nasty Half.  Sand Hollow Reservoir is to the south, with Zion in the background.  Pine Valley Mountains are to the west, usually capped with snow during Winter 4x4 Jamboree.  The view to the south is... the next big rock with sand on it!

Surface

Slickrock with sand.  Slot canyons and wide sandy canyon bottoms with steep sandhill climbs.

Trail Details

Nasty Half starts off with a tall vertical wall and doesn't let up until you find yourself flooring your way up the side of a sandy hill to resurface on the dunes. There are several undulating slots that require spanning and pose a big challenge trying to stay up and not tip over.

Many rigs have been known as "that rig" (you know, the one that is always breaking down) because there is almost always a guarantee of body damage and or mechanical failure. Rigs should be equipped with 2 lockers and a minimum of 37" tires.

::: RollerCoaster :::

The newest trail in Sand Hollow was cracked open by a couple Trail Hero Sand Hollow Off-Road buggy guys. This trail is a rated a 9 if you run the regular path but if you want additional buggy obstacles, this trail can turn into a 10 quick. Elevation changes and steep, technical climbs allow drivers to assent from the lower portion of the park all the way up to the top of the bluff. The Trail covers a 900 foot elevation change in stages and steps of about 15 foot to 60 foot climbs and features 13 obstacles that are just down right fun!   

Scenery

Beautiful views of Sand Hollow, Zion Park, Hurricane Cliffs, and Pine Valley Mountains.  Lots of incredible scenery within inches of your buggy! Once at the top of the trail, you can see just about every cool sight to the north.

Surface

Sandstone (slickrock) slot canyons and waterfalls.  Huge ledges and some sandy sections.  Lots of max vertical but crawlable, technical slickrock.

Chain Reaction by Rugged Radios more

::: Chain Reaction :::

This trail teeters on the edge of being buggy territory.  Very skilled drivers in heavily modified full-size rigs have successfully negotiated it, but few of them escaped body damage.   Many rigs have had big fails here.  This trail begins and ends at the bottom of the rock formations just to the south of Sand Hollow State Park.  While not as high rated as Arrowhead Canyon in the next canyon to the east, it still has plenty of adrenaline factor for buggies and heavily modified full body rigs.

 

Scenery

Pause to take in views of Sand Hollow Reservoir immediately to the south with Zion Park in the distance.  The usually snow-capped Pine Valley Mountains are to the west, and Hurricane Cliffs are to the east. 

Surface

Slickrock canyons, wedges, and ledges.  Some sand hills.

Trail Details

Chain reaction begins in a sandy wash by Sand Hollow Reservoir. The first obstacle is one gigantic waterfall.  This obstacle is buggy only.  The waterfall is easily bypassed by entering into the wash a little further up. Chain Reaction consists of Lower Chain and Upper Chain.  Lower chain follows this wash.  It is full of obstacles that can get ugly real fast if you are not careful.  The wash narrows into a tricky series of falls and around a bend that requires maneuvering your rig by a massive boulder.  Then it opens up and you begin making your way out of the wash.  To reach Upper Chain, the driver must climb a very slick and vertical hill.  At the top, Upper Chain begins, leading you along the ridge above the wash. Upper chain presents just as many intimidating challenges to both the rig and its driver.  You will almost always receive some "love bites" from the rocks.  Rigs need to be, at a minimum, locked front and rear with at least 35" tires. Chain Reaction has an extremely high possibility of body damage and/or mechanical breakdown.

Chutes & Ladders more

::: Chutes & Ladders :::

Just like the fun childhood board game, Chutes and Ladders will give the buggy crowd high's and low's... This is a newer trail at Sand Hollow and is rated a 9 if you take the regular trail, but there are plenty of options in the 10 range if you would like to push your limits.

Scenery

This trail doesn't have much for scenery, though once at the top, you can look down towards Sand Hollow State Park Lake and out to Zion National Park.

Surface

The begining of the trail has lots of sand to rock transitions, after about 1/4 of the trail is complete, the trail turn primarily to sand stone. Lots of ledges, cracks, climbs and drops. Drops are reletivily rated around a 7-8 in difficulty. 

Trail Details

Entering the first climb of the trail has proven to be an obstacle that has not been completed as of yet. We are giving the first person to make the climb the option to name it. The first climb is a vertical ledge with a breakover that has been too much to handle as of yet. The bypass is simple and is rated around a 7 in difficulty. The next obstacle is a crack that puts you in a direct position to make a difficult left hand turn. The left hand turn has two options, the right line is for the big guys and has been completed by one person. The right line is a fun chute that takes full throttle to execute. The third challenge is called "J's Jumble" which if not on the correct line will put your rig in a bit of a diffcult position that feels like it will roll over. Only saving grace is that there is no where to roll over as you'll just scrape your body through the obstacle. The other side of the wrong line will cause your roof line to pinch into a small overhang. On the correct line will allow an enormus vehicle to drive through, so no size limitations here.

The next chute is called Cam's Corner named after one of the initial drivers rolled while attempting the climb. Cam's Corner is a series of ledges at the bottom of a 45' long chute.

Once at the top of Cam's Corner is a pretty fun climb called "Double Bump" which has been driven while both wet and dry. The next obstacle is where the trail splits off in three different directions. Far Right is the regular trail which features a series of various ledges that will make you climb and articulate at the same time, perfect for a photo with the Lake in the back ground. The middle line is a fun buggy line that is called "2nd to Reverse" which is called that way after a driver grabbed 2nd gear in the middle of the climb and instead accidentally caught reverse, sending him back down the climb in a hurry. The far left climb is full of 10 rated obstacles that will test the best equipment out there called "Rich's Route". 

Once to the top of the trail (A Full Bodied FJ40 on 40's has made it to this point), drivers start down into a valley called "Darth Valley" and back out another fun chute. Then into an off-camber dropwhich has a bit of a pinch at the bottom. Once on the other side of this next chute, drivers will be glad they are done with this Adult Verson of the famed childhood game ;)

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.

DeKleined more

::: DeKleined :::

The name comes from a noted buggy driver who, when he was introduced to this new trail, was declined on his first attempt.  Apparently, this is not usual, as he has lead trips on some of the most hardcore trails the southwest has to offer.  So, to poke a little fun at him, we named the trail after him... kinda!  Needless to say, this is the most difficult of the difficult.  Come prepared to be "DeKleined" by this trail.

KrawlZone TV's Quick Clip of the DeKleined Trail
https://youtu.be/pv5pzJwRClQ

Scenery

DeKleined is on the east hills above Sand Hollow Reservoir.  Great views of the reservoir and the red sand surrounding it.  To the southwest there are views of the many rock formations that hold most of the buggy trails run by Sand Hollow.  Behind the reservoir, you see the snow-packed peaks of Kolob and Pine Valley mountains.

Surface

Two-track sandy road from the Sand Hollow State Park to the trailhead.  Trail is mostly slickrock, with some sandy areas.  Return from the trail is via the same two-track. 

Trail Details

DeKleined has many of the most difficult climbs and off camber in not only our area, but anywhere!  Be prepared for tip-overs and breakage.
