DeKleined

New for 2016!  The name comes from a noted buggy driver who, when he was introduced to this new trail, was declined on his first attempt.  Apparently, this is not usual, as he has led trips on some of the most hardcore trails the southwest has to offer.  So, to poke a little fun at him, we named the trail after him... kinda!  Needless to say, this is the most difficult of the difficult.  Come prepared to be "DeKleined" by this trail.


Scenery

DeKleined is on the east hills above Sand Hollow Reservoir.  Great views of the reservoir and the red sand surrounding it.  To the southwest there are views of the many rock formations that hold most of the buggy trails run by Sand Hollow.  Behind the reservoir, you see the snow-packed peaks of Kolob and Pine Valley mountains.

Surface

Two-track sandy road from the Sand Hollow State Park to the trailhead.  Trail is mostly slickrock, with some sandy areas.  Return from the trail is via the same two-track. 

Trail Details

DeKleined has many of the most difficult climbs and off camber in not only our area, but anywhere!  Be prepared for tip-overs and breakage.
