What we're about

Originally started as a hiking group Davis County Outdoor Adventures does more than hiking alone and not always in Davis County. There are plenty of activities to do. Enjoying the stars on a dark night. Festivals and fairs. Biking with road and mountain bikes on trails, at parks and resorts. Backpacking and camping in the mountains and near ponds and lakes. Concerts, skiing, snowboarding, and the hiking that grew this group into what it is now.

Come join people going on adventures and experiencing what the outdoors offer.

Overlanding Adventure: Trip on Skyline Drive

Station Park

Meet at Farmington Station park and ride (map pin) at 0800 on 8/7. What is overlanding? More of a buzzword (aka camping, expedition, off-roading, etc), look up the definition here: https://overlandjournal.com/what-is-overlanding/ We’ll be starting off of highway 6 near Tucker, UT with this route here (https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/utah/manti-la-sal-skyline-drive-route-6-to-route-31) Planning on camping for 2 nights and will be hiking and may be bringing a mountain biking along. I don’t know what trails/water yet. This will be an adventure for sure, you WILL need a 4WD high clearance vehicle. Planning with supplies is a MUST, extra fuel, water, spare tire, recovery gear, etc. Basically I want to take Skyline drive to route 31 down to Fairview, then up to Thistle on the way home. We may explore routes further south. There’s no set agenda, I’m not familiar with this area. Plan on plenty of stops, side excursions, and exploring.
