ATV Adventures: Riding trails at the San Juan ATV Safari in Blanding

The red rock country of Southern Utah never fails to amaze me. It has been a few years since I have made a trip to Blanding and the closer I got, the more excited I became. Traveling down Highway 6 to Interstate 70, we saw the jagged outline of the ridges of the San Rafael Swell on our right. ...

ATV Adventures: The Arapeen OHV Jamboree — a fun ride and fishing as a bonus

My experience on the Arapeen Jamboree was amazing. It is the first time I have been since 2005, so a lot of things have changed in those 18 years. Originally, this jamboree had rides both in the San Rafael Swell and on the Arapeen Trails. They have now separated these into two events — the ...

ATV Adventures: Taking a new track on Shoshone OHV Trail in Northern Utah

ATV Adventures: Memories and adventures on the Chicken Creek Trail

I have ridden Chicken Creek before, but I have also ridden Farmington Canyon many times. It seems like even old trails make for new adventures. The Chicken Creek trailhead is east of Levan. Everyone I have talked to seems to know about the name of this little town, but for the record, here ...

ATV Adventures: The Arapeen OHV Trail System will put you on top of the world

In a continuing effort to provide information on places to ride for people new to the OHV world, I am reviewing one of my favorite trail systems in Utah. The Arapeen OHV Trail System is situated in Sanpete County, which is right in the middle of the state. That makes for a short distance ...
