Tavaputs Ranch and Range Creek ATV Tour

This year's adventures will once again include a Guided Tour of Range Creek, complete with Fremont Culture Sites
and Early Cowboy Historical Sites.

The trip includes the usual 80 miles of riding, delicious food, comfortable lodging, a FULL day Range Creek Tour and a guided tour of the Tavaputs Plateau. The cost is only $350 per person. As usual, this will be a very fun-filled weekend of riding, relaxing, dining, touring and adventure!

Plan to meet at East Carbon City Hall. Here you will park your vehicles/trailers and get on your ATV's riding along the old railroad grade for 10 miles-passing Columbia and the abandoned mine site at Horse Canyon. From Horse Canyon it is another 10 miles up and over the 8500' pass that drops into Little Horse Canyon, where we arrive in Range Creek Canyon. We park our machines in a secure area between 2 locked gates. Butch and Jeanie meet us here with Tavaputs Ranch vehicles which we will use for the tour. (Range Creek is closed to public motorized use).

We will travel 13 miles down Range Creek Canyon touring the Fremont Indian Culture sites. After enjoying a delicious picnic lunch at the NHMU Field School Station at the Historic Wilcox Ranch, we continue back up the canyon stopping at Fremont pithouses, viewing granaries and beautiful rock art. Our tour ends by 5:00pm. Once back in the saddle, we will ride up through Sheep Canyon to the top on the Tavaputs Plateau. It's here the road gets FUN as it climbs over 2000' in just a few miles. Beautiful views as we negotiate 10 switchbacks on the way to the top!

Upon arrival at Tavaputs Ranch, you will be shown to your cabin, where you can stow your luggage and dust off prior to your amazing evening at the Tavaputs Lodge. Enjoy a delicious dinner, star gazing and socializing with the group as you relax around the fire pits.

You should get up early to see the amazing SUNRISE that the plateau is famous for. Country breakfast served, followed by more relaxing and socializing before our 20+ mile tour of the private property on the plateau viewing breathtaking scenery. Enjoy a Tavaputs BBQ to round out the day before we head off the mountain-and back to East Carbon City by 6:00pm.

This will be a FULL 2 days of adventure! Come and enjoy!
