Camp Jackson, Blue Mountain, Blanding, Utah 10-18-2015

Blue Mountain, Camp Jackson, Blanding, Utah   20 mi
Larry and Geri rode out on Friday 10-16-15 20 mi.
We staged on the Devils Canyon Campground Road, and rode out on #92, the Lower Bulldog Canyon Trail, Nice sandstone bluffs, some water crossings, ponderosa and white pines.  We turned north on trail #1, which passed thru some aspen. (There is a trail head and restrooms to the right) We turned west/left on the road on #92 and quickly took the Camp Jackson Trail, it is not marked on the sign as a 50" trail, but it is on the map. 

We have found, if it is marked on the map, there is an obstacle down the trail which makes larger OHVs impossible to go.  There was one drop off, built up with some branches, which would be difficult if you were over 52inches.

trail was changeling and beautiful, scrub oak, aspen, pines and long vistas along the way.  We came to a road (Johnson Creek Road) where there was thick aspen and a few hunting cabins.  We rode to the Marvin Tunnel, which is almost covered up by falling dirt and trees, too dangerous to go into. Since there wasn't a way back to our staging area we had to double back on the same trail, but it was just as interesting.
