The Arapeen Trails are some of my favorite. Always looking for new ones, Kevin Christiansen of the Sanpete County Travel Council put me in touch with Brad Bradley, a retired DWR conservation officer. Brad told me that the title was just a fancy name for “fish cop.”

It is hard to resist an ATV adventure on the Arapeen ATV Trail System. I had bragged about fishing on the quiet little ponds and beautiful lakes on Manti Mountain to my friend Taylor Durrant from Arizona. Being an avid fisherman, Taylor wanted to see for himself, so we set a date for an ATV …

The original purpose that created this adventure was to find a cabin that was supposed to be up Wildcat Canyon. It belonged to my friend Terry Maxfield’s grandfather. As near as we could determine, the trail began just south of Emery and climbed up a canyon to Wildcat Knoll.

The ride is called an Iron Man because when the trail is smooth it is fun to go fast. You can ride so that you can see a lot of a little scenery, but you don’t go very far. On the Iron Man, we see a little of a lot of scenery and we go far. Threatening to ride fast reduced the number of ride…

Being a sucker for adventure, I thought, “Who wouldn’t want to ride the Mad Dog ATV trail?” It was the second day of the Beaver ATV Adventure Days sponsored by the city of Beaver, Utah, and the Tushar Mountain ATV Club and I had signed up for the Mad Dog ride.

The first time I saw a Polaris RZR RS1, I wanted to take one out on the trail. That didn’t happen until July of this year, but it was well worth the wait. Greg Belnap of Moto United in Salt Lake City called me and said, “You have got to drive the RS1.” Well, I already knew that, so arrangeme…

The altitude at the Bryce Canyon Pines Motel is 7,700 feet. The temperature outside our rooms when we walked outside was 33 degrees. One of our riders splashed water on his windshield to clean it and it turned to ice instantly. That was enough reason to go to the motel’s restaurant and let t…

We just can’t beat a week with a truck, especially one of the smaller ones such at the Nissan Frontier. Over the past three years Nissan has won many awards for being the top rated mid-sized pickup from JD Powers. As other mid-sized pickups have tended to grow over the years, Nissan has stayed true to its size, and even offers two different length wheel bases in the Frontier.

Riding an ATV from the northern border to the southern border of Utah has been done before. It takes six days to do it sensibly, if you can make sense of it. We were going from south to the north and we only had five days available so we decided to begin in Kanab and end in Kamas.

Last week I reviewed the new 2020 Kawasaki Teryx KRX 1000, but I spent so much space on how much I enjoyed the machine that I ran out of room to write about the ride. It was every bit as great as the KRX.

Kawasaki is famous for its family friendly four-place Teryx UTV. I have seen these on the trails and often all four seats are filled. 2020 marks the introduction of a new Kawasaki sport UTV — the Teryx KRX 1000.

Of all the trailheads on the Shoshone ATV Trail System, Curtis Creek is closest to home. Being a little lower in elevation than some of the other mountain trails, we hoped it would be clear of snow.

We have ridden the Pony Express Trail before, but on this ride I saw the trail through new eyes. We were riding in my Kawasaki Teryx 4 with my brother-in-law, Mike Timothy, and his wife, Katherine. She had a great-great-grandfather who was a Pony Express rider.

Traveling west from Faust on the Pony Express Trail over Lookout Pass, south of Skull Valley, we found a kiosk with information about the Onaqui Mountain wild horse herd that roams this area. I thought, “Yeah, right,” and remembered the many times I had been told to watch for wild horses on …

We have always enjoyed driving a Dodge Charger, especially when we have been at events and have got to try out a Hellcat. So it was very intriguing for us to have a week with the new all-wheel drive Charger that should prove to be quite a hit here in the Beehive State.

When my wife saw the pictures of a geologic feature known as White Pocket that I had visited a couple of years ago, it went on her bucket list. It was the second day of a three-day trip on the Arizona side of the Utah border. The first day, we traveled through the Kaibab Forest visiting view…

Early last year, Mercedes made an unprecedented move by announcing that it would introduce a new A-Class sedan to the U.S. market. This was great news as the A-Class is a very affordable entry level luxury sedan and would start at just $32,500 for the two-wheel drive, and only $34,800 for the 4Matic, or all-wheel drive version that should prove to be very popular in Utah.

With snow in the higher elevations still preventing access to mountain ATV trails and travel restrictions being relaxed, people who have been cooped up are busting out all over. I learned that the crowds at Five Mile Pass the weekend of April 25-26 numbered about 2,000. Two serious ATV accid…
