I've been really wanting to make a trip here for years. I feel like the talon may be more fun than the crawler would have been.

What trails did you guys run?

Sand Hollow is good for 1 1/2 or 2 days max, and you can cover pretty much every trail in that amount of time. It's nothing close to Moab. There are a few technical sections, but they tend to be short and easy to get around if you don't want to do them. Also the sand areas can be are crowded on Saturdays. However, Sand Hollow (plus larger surrounding area) is very good on a dirt bike, and there are a lot of fun single track trails that open up into Warner valley and into AZ. I've raced there for years and feel that's really the magic down there is on two wheels. Also, Mesquite NV has a great motocross track, so if we do more than two days in that area, we prefer motocross bikes down there. We plan to explore the Kanab area (1 hour away from Sand Hollow) with the Talon so stay tuned for some upcoming videos of that.

Sorry, but there is no way you are running every trail in 2 days.

I'm guessing youre only doing the easy to moderate trails?

I was referring to Sand Hollow State park which I believe is barely 15,000 acres total, and a chunk of that is water. We bashed thru technical areas, like double sammy's, tripple 7, TNT, Chain reaction, and got thru the dune areas before the guys with sub-woofers & monster flags showed up. lol . Here is a GPS over the top of the tail maps but it's clearly covering most the riding trails at SHP in 2 days time. We also did some washes from desert race courses and the last Jeep rally that still had markers up, not on this map. Hopefully, that helps. It's a fun area!
