    Looking for info on St.George, Utah Sand hollow

    Going to St. George, Utah in a couple of weeks for a wheeling trip with a small group of Jeepers.
    Looking for info on wheeling the area. Jeeps are JK's, JKU's, LJ, XJ. All ore on 35's and larger tires and lifted
    at least 3" or more. There will be approx. 8 jeeps. All have been wheeling our area for a few years.
    Will be out there for five days of wheeling.

    Looking for area's for wheeling. I know that Sand Hollow is out there and we will be doing some of those trails.
    Any other area's to look at ? ?

    I know that I have to follow the rule "DON'T DO ANYTHING STUPID, YOU HAVE TO DRIVE THIS JEEP HOME".
    We will be out there for a week near the end of October. Looking for recommendations as to what trails to
    run and what to stay away from. Will not have any buggies in the group.

    Any other trails in the area to run? ?

    Any repair shops located in the area ? ? Hope they are not needed, but you never know.

    Thanks for your input.

    Dixie 4Wheel is a huge shop there.

    If you want a day run that's less rock crawling and more scenic, try and shoot straight south towards the Grand Canyon. Google: Trumbull, Bar 10 Ranch, Whitmore Point.

    Yep Dixie is the big shop in the area. They used to have a trail map for your phone on their website. Their map listed all the trail ratings on the map.

    Make sure you have a whip flag as they are required in Sand Hollow. I zip tied mine to my CB antenna.

    Enjoy! Its a great area to wheel. I cant wait to go back.

    For a mellow, scenic run go find Toquerville Falls. Beautiful area.

    Re: Looking for info on St.George, Utah Sand hollow

    I love Sand Hollow. The trails in Sand Hollow proper are not as long. Many can be done in a half day, or less. Dixie is out there, but there is also Sand Hollow Off Road that does repairs in Hurricane. (Her-ih-kin) Rooms are cheap, too.
    As for trails, Toquerville Falls is awesome. If you want to amp up the difficulty, take the route that goes through the Nephi Twist trail. That will put it about a 6 and is a beautiful drive up the canyon. There is also Honeymoon trail that is a nice easy trail.
    If you want to amp up the difficulty, there is Double Sammy, which is probably my favorite trail in Sand Hollow. Faultline and Razorback are both a little more difficult, but doable. I think Razorback is an 8, but you can dive out off Faultline to head back to town. There are longer trails, as well.
    Plus, St George and Washington are not far away, if you are looking for something non four wheel drive to do.

    Thanks for the info so far, keep it coming. We will be staying in the south end of St George, some of us in motels and some are camping.
    We're leaving in a week and a half and will be spending 5 days of wheeling.
    A whole new area for me

    Take a drive through Zion if you've never been. Beautiful country. They have dispersed camping at Sand Hollow and have showers and toilets as well.

    I'll second Double Sammy, it's fun.

    Looking for info on St.George, Utah Sand hollow

    We just got back from Sand Hollow. You can find mild to wild trails in the ‘park’. We played on the wild ones, but did run up Double Sammy on the last day.
    For the park trails they have symbols painted on the rocks. The upright Jeeps are for the mellower Jeep lines. The upside down ones are for the buggy lines.

    We stayed in the park at the Sandpit campground. The showers are nice and we had a group site for 16 folks. It was also only $15 a night.

    Here’s a tease or two of some of the more extreme stuff out there.

    If you would pry your sorry arse out the Scottsdale Fashion Square once in a while you would know more about the BLM and the USFS (you do know those acronyms, right?).

    Huck---------

    Great pictures that you posted.
    Shows me the trails I should stay away from while there unless I'm watching some of the buggy boys doing their thing.
    Looks like you guys had a great time.
