ATVing 5 Mile Pass Again

ATVing 5 Mile Pass Again



5 mile pass is an excellent place to ride in the spring while waiting for the snow to melt.

Here is a trip I took May 8th 2010 with the Mill Canyon Crawlers ATV group. We went to 5 mile pass and then over into the next valley. There is a motocross track in the middle of nowhere. Map at the bottom. We also stumbled upon a rattlesnake.

I will also soon post about my new tires and fuel controller that I used for this trip.

Five Mile Pass is located about 20 miles (32 km) west of Lehi, Utah on the Utah County and Tooele County line. The area, part of the Great Basin Desert is popular for motocross, off highway vehicle recreation, mountain biking, hiking, and camping.

The area is managed by the Bureau of Land Management of the United States government. The Pony Express passed through the area during 1860-1861. The area also was traveled by the stagecoach and pioneer families heading west for Nevada and California. Other historical activities in the area include mineral mining and quarrying.

(MyATVBlog Strongly Suggests using the proper safety gear including a helmet. We also support one’s freedom to choose to not wear a helmet.)
