Driving trails in Sand Hollow State Park, Utah is something that literally everyone should experience. It is life changing if you have never done it before. The scenery is, without a better word – Breathtaking. You can’t take a bad photo when the sun is shining, and every where you look there are places to wheel – of every level difficulty imaginable. It took about 17 hours of driving from Central WA State, down to the bottom of Utah.
Sand Hollow is a place where you can bring your Buggy & Boat – with ability to use both in the same day. Pretty incredible. The Trail Hero event is annual – and is a very unique, fun filled week. 4 days of Trail Runs & 1 Vendor Show Day at the end. This year we were met with some terrible looking forecasts honestly, but when the time came – Mother Nature decided to save the best weather for wheeling days. Our Vendor show was rainy, but the Trail Runs were a total SUCCESS!
To understand this event, you must first look at the world class facility of Sand Hollow, in Hurricane, Utah. Offering thousands of all access off-road acreage embedded with trails ranging from Mild to Wild; Sand Hollow also offers the only location that entails a 5 star resort retreat complete with 18 hole golf course, villas, off-road rentals, and services. Along with lake access year round, both dry and wet camping facilities, and the very off-road friendly City of Hurricane, only 3 miles away make this a prime location. We believe this is going to be the new happening spot for 4wd enthusiasts & professionals alike.
This year we sponsored our very own run – The Ladies Trail Run: By Nitro Gear & Axle on Milt’s Mile (WATCH VIDEO BELOW)
The day after we got to the BNB, we met up with Waldy’s Offroad, Novak Conversions, & the guys from KrawlZone (KrawlTV) and headed out to a beautiful waterfall location – “Toquerville Falls”

The next day – We were up & at it early, and lined up at Staging Area with several Jeeps & Toyota’s for the “Sliplock Gulch” Trail Run. This was a fantastic time, no breakdowns, or roll-overs! Lot’s of very cool rock walls & dry waterfalls here on this trail. It was our 1st official Trail Hero 2018 group & the lines we drove did NOT disappoint!

We took an hour or so to hit some dunes at Sand Hollow State Park during day 3 of Trail Hero – The LS powered Tiffany Blue JKU made EASY work of moving through the soft, traction robbing sand & the 37″ Nitto Mud Grapplers hooked up at each end of the JKU’s brand new 8 Lug & Locking Hub Converted Axles. With the new Currie F9 housing in the rear – We might as well have had “Sand Commander” painted on the side 😉
