This looks like a good trail to walk. It
really looks like a risky line to choose. It
isn’t that the trail is really that hard, but
the consequences of a mistake are dire.
Located south of Zion National
Park, Sand Hollow State Park is one
of the most scenic OHV areas in the
country. Opened in 2003 as an official
Utah state park, Sand Hollow is 15,000
acres of red sand dunes, sand wash-es, open desert and red sandstone
formations, and there is also a large
reservoir with beach camping adjacent
to the Sand Pit Campground with 31
campsites. The SxS Adventure Rally is
held in November each year. This year
pre-registration ran $110 each for drivers and passengers, since insurance,
dinner, T-shirts and all BLM fees are the
same amount for both. Once you have
pre-registered, you may change your
ride choices, but you will not be able to
be added to rides that are full.
You could register on-site for $120,
but that registration does not include
a shirt, and there is no guarantee that
you will get the ride you want. Children
10 and under are free, but no shirt is
included. Registration covers three
days of guided trail rides, event T-shirt
(for those that register online), a swag
bag full of goodies from CST Tires SxS
Adventure Rally and many other vendors
and sponsors, all BLM & School Lands
and Trust fees, sales tax, three breakfasts, opportunities to talk with the top
vendors in the industry, participation in
UTV games (additional fees may apply),
and a chance to win many raffle prizes.
Oh, and during the event you may drive
your UTV around town with restrictions
on the main highway.
This is the beauty of Sand Hollow State Park. Mere feet from dunes and sand sport
galore, the slick-rock routes are stunning. This one looks like a beast of a climb.
Yep. We’d take a spotter here. Drops this steep can be blind from the cockpit as
you approach the drop. Knowing that you are on the correct line is priceless.
