As Off Road enthusiasts, access to public lands is an extremely important commodity, and that access is continuously shrinking. Regular vehicle access to public lands is vital to those with special needs, including wounded Veterans who may not be able to hike in to a trail, or ride in on a mountain bike. This issue is what Trail Hero is bringing national awareness to with it’s 5 day event consisting of guided trails, challenge race and a golf tournament in Hurricane, Utah’s Sand Hollow. It not only offers a lavish resort, golf course, and restaurants, but thousands of off roading trails in the beautiful Utah Desert. Trail Hero teams up with Hero For A Day, 4 Wheel To Heal, and Utah 4 Wheel Drive Association to raise funds for awareness.
Leading up to this amazing event is the Adventure 2 Trail Hero, led by one of Off Road Vixen’s very own Jeepn Gypsy, Paula Mann.
Paula lives, eats and breathes the Jeep and Off Roading lifestyle by living out of and exploring from her Jeep Wrangler 365 days a year.
This is a 3 night- 4 day adventure that kicks off in Torrey, Utah and leads the group directly to Sand Hollow for the Trail Hero event. This excursion takes them down some of the most beautiful, remote terrain in the region and they are running trails from sunup to sun down.
Every night they enjoy amazing homestyle dinners provided by their sponsors, including us here at Off Road Vixens. There, they sit around a bonfire and tell stories about their adventures of the day. This is the place friends and memories are made. On the last day they pull into Sand Hollow ready to take on Trail Hero itself. They celebrate their journey with a bonfire beach party sponsored by GenRight Offroad, have an amazing dinner, and host their Welcome 2 Trail Hero Giveaway.
If you are an off roading fiend, and if you think our access to public lands is an essential part of our lives, consider joining in on this epic event next year! And make sure you join Paula on her Adventure 2 trail Hero!
