   This trip has just about everything you'd want in an off road trip. Bud said this was one of the best ones. The trip is 44 miles long and took 8 1/2 hrs. to complete. Thanks again to "Bud" Leland Sanders & the St. George Jeeper's for this trip report.

Getting there!

   Between Las Vegas and Mesquite, Nevada in the desert is a small town of Moapa. Leaving Interstate 15 at Exit 88 just South of Moapa on Hidden Valley Road, 9 jeeps with the St. George Jeepers headed out for another neat and very scenic adventure. Scenery, Mines, loads of Petroglyphs, wild animals and challenges lay ahead. This is one trip you won't want to miss out on. Photos, maps and GPX tracks provided. Map below.
