The Editors

The Trail Hero Story…

Planning launched in October 2015 for the first Trail Hero event to be held in Fall of 2016, bringing rock sports and land use together.  The idea from the beginning was to bring out the hero in everyone, while showcasing the marvelous scenery and rock crawling fun of Southern Utah.

The Mission…

A Trail Hero is someone that puts the collective movement before themselves. Selfless, these heroes give back to the community, donate time and/or money to the cause, and participate above and beyond that of industry standards. The mission of Trail Hero is to get more involvement and awareness to southern Utah off-road; provide more people an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors; and give people who normally wouldn’t have a chance to hit the trails the power to do so.

Powerhouse Location…

To understand this event, you  must first look at the world class facility of Sand Hollow, in Hurricane, Utah. Offering thousands of off-road acreage with access for all, embedded with trails ranging from mild to wild, Sand Hollow also offers the only location that entails a 5 star resort retreat complete with 18 hole golf course, villas, off-road rentals, and services. Along with lake access year round, both dry and wet camping facilities, and the very off-road friendly City of Hurricane, only 3 miles away make this a prime location.


Coming next week, October 6 – 8, 2018, Trail Hero proudly boasts on their website that they are, “the only event in two decades of rock sports history to place all aspects of our great sport into one picturesque/powerhouse location.” This event has quite a few very defining features that will appeal to a broad interest of folks on multiple levels.

Raffle and More…

Trail Hero will host a Charitable Raffle conducted and collected by Utah 4Wheel Drive Association during the event, as well as 4 days of trail rides on 82 trails for stock Jeeps, buggies, and UTV’s. The trail rides are designed to keep the entertainment flowing for participants with the ability to watch or take part in various features throughout the week.

After the trails are done for the day, riders can conquer “Bounty” obstacles, watch 10 competitors break new ground on the hardest trail in the country, capture a Rock Crawl competition, showcase a high speed Rock Race, and tie together the industry with a very formidable vendor show that features charitable raffles, live music, onsite catering, car show, and Closing Ceremonial Film of the event. Furthermore, Trail Hero will also feature the first ever Rockin’ Golf Tourney on the greens of Sand Hollow Resort, and a VIP event to thank our sponsors and vendors for their participation in helping keep public lands public at the Rock Sports Gala.

Free to Spectators…

Simply put, no single event has ever had every aspect of our sport on one platform until now, all while being FREE to Spectators. Charitable donations will be accepted by Utah Public Lands Alliance and Utah 4 Wheel Drive Association.
