Description: This ride will stay in the same camp again for all six days in 2018. We are going to make use of the start of the Grandview Trail as well as the spectacular trails through Red Canyon and Mt Dutton. This will be the only XP ride in the area as we have cancelled the Bryce Ride after many years due to the decreasing number of entries. Perhaps in the future we will offer it again if we have sufficient interest.
Directions: Base Camp is located at 37° 44.010’N x 112° 14.501’W. From US Hwy 89, south of Panguitch, Utah, go 7.5 miles east on Hwy 12 to Forest Road 117, also known as the Tom Best Spring Road. Turn left (north) and continue 1.2 miles on the excellent gravel road to camp on both sides of Tom’s Best Spring Road. You can turn left or right and camp anywhere within the 150 foot limit on both sides of the two track roads.
When you get the top of Red Canyon the turn off is only a third of a mile, so slow down and be ready to make that turn. Should you miss the turn you can go to the Chevron station just down the road for a turn around.
Meals: Lunches are provided. Dinners will be available for an extra fee.
Awards: Individual daily awards are available for the first to finish and the horse in the best condition. Daily participation awards will be given to all riders. Riders who complete all six days will receive jackets or plaques.
