local trails?

Ok, I am dying to go jeeping, but I'm wanting some variety. I'm in Utah County and need to know if I am missing out on some trails I don't know about...

If you guys know of any other than my list please let me know!

trails I know:
(west of Utah Lake)
-Rattlesnake
-Constrictor
-Little Moab
(up AF Canyon)
-Mary Ellen's Gulch
-Forest Lake
-Silver Lake Flats
-Mineral Basin

I know the gates up AF canyon are still closed. I actually just got off the phone with the Pleasant Grove Ranger Station and they informed me that they won't be open till early-mid June. LAME

Please help me out if you are hiding some info!

Someday when we meet, I'll show you the sweet map I have of AF canyon. It has coverage all the way over to Midway, so it is great for knowing where to go to criss cross the mountains. It won't exactly be rock crawling, but it is quiet and very scenic.

So, are you coming out to LM with us tomorrow?

AF Canyon not open until June!!? Ridiculous. Have you checked over at RME4x4? I know they have a lot of coordinates of different trails.

Better play Jeeps again!! I tried looking but nothing is close. I heard something about corner canyon in draper?? I don't know if it's anything good though.

There used to be some stuff to do between Alpine and Draper; there were trails all over the mountains between the two towns. One well-known spot was called Hog's Hollow and was a favorite mud hole (if that's your idea of Jeeping, anyway). Not any real rock crawling, but lots of steep hills.

Now pretty much all of it is closed to motorized access.

Meh mud doesn't appeal to me at all. I can't find any other ones that are close by.

Dang... oh well, I guess we will just have to wait for the gates to open up AF canyon.

Southern Provo has some fun little trails up on the bench... nothing technical. There's an entrance located at 40.224286,-111.629614 . There are some serious mud puddles south along this trail as well.
Then there is also Squaw Peak Trail in the Provo Area...also less than technical

I've started a simple google map with some of the trails I mentioned above.

Add your trails that you know of in Utah County and elsewhere if you would like! (Utah County was just a good place to start for me.)
