    Rattlesnake at 5-Mile, UT

    A couple of weeks ago a small group of us did the Rattlesnake trail at 5-Mile about 20 miles West of Lehi, UT. This trail follows a series of washes and tailing piles from long since closed mines. I had run this trail a few years ago in my ’06 Adventure with no problem but had much more confidence in hitting some harder lines in the ’09 Alpha with the solid axle front and 37s. Having a little too much confidence on one obstacle, I slid past my Schwarttzy skid plate and dented in my gas tank skid and decreased my fuel capacity a little. We ran out of daylight and were not able to get to the end but stopped at a spot where you can look down some of the old mine shafts. In one of them, you can make out the back end of an old jeep that made an unfortunate wrong turn in the dark before they had closed them up. Towards the end of the trail there is an obstacle called Waynes World that I’m anxious to check out and maybe give it a shot. I highly recommend this trail if you’re in the area. Lots of great views and some fun local history.

    Looks like a fun trip. Maybe next year I'll have more time to do some trips.
