    The purpose of this thread is to discuss various meet ups and trail runs in Utah. Once a date and location has been decided, we will start a new thread to discuss details and post pictures and such. That way all who are interested with potential meet ups, but are unable to attend one won't be bombarded by pointless messages.

    Hey everyone! My new T4R gets here today! We need to do a run to break her in, what are you guy's thoughts about July 1st? Most likely within a couple hours of Utah County.

    Okay lets decide on a location, Maybe run AF canyon to Midway? Or Squaw Peak to Hobble Creek? I'm happy to travel further than that, but those are the first to come to mind

    Squaw Peak Rd is my vote. I just did the AF to Midway route last weekend :)

    I've never done either, but I'd love to go on a run. Not sure about availability just yet, but I think I'm free. It depends on when my parents come into town...

    I tried to run squaw peak to hobble Creek two weeks ago, got turned around by a 20 foot snow flow. Tried AF to Midway last Saturday, got turned around by snow too. Both should be melted by July. [​IMG]

    You still might! Other than that snow flow, I didn't see any. So it might be melted enough to cross. And AF to Midway was online like 2 feet deep, and that was a week and a half ago. I might have tried it, but I didn't have another rig to pull me out if I got stuck.

    Yeah I won't have another rig either, and mine is brand new so I might be a little hesitant lol. Sounds like they will be great for a ride on the 1st!

    Some here and there on the Forest Lake trail, but up and over to Midway none at all.

    Squaw sounds like more of an adventure ;)

    I think Squaw Peak would be great. I have been wanting to do that trail. I should be able to make this trip.

    I did the squaw peak road a couple of weeks ago as well and ran into snow. But it was fun until then.
