Trail Overview

Closed from October to June. This is a great drive that takes you up and over the Oquirrh Mountains between Herriman and Tooele, Utah. This is a perfect place for an evening with great views. This area is particularly beautiful in the fall with many colors in the trees. You will also get a great birdseye view of one of the largest mines on earth. The Oquirrh Mountains are west of Salt Lake City and see far less traffic than the Wasatch Range across the valley. The drive can easily be done in any direction, and in most vehicles. There is a short side road to the top of West Mountain where you can look down and into the Kennecott Copper Mine.
