Travel Time & Difficulty:
Plan on at least 4-6 hours to run the trail at a moderate pace, not including travel time to and from the trail head. Add 1 hour for optional Spiral Jetty side trip, and 1 hour for Zaqistan. Route can be ran either direction.
Most of the trail is a mild dirt road. A few moderately rocky sections slow you down but aren't difficult. Trail can be ran in a stock 4x4 vehicle, or OHV.
This route covers the Transcontinental Railroad Backcountry Byway coming from Corinne to Lucin, and then south to Wendover.
Stops along the way include the ATK/Thiokol rocket display, Golden Spike National Historical Park, Spiral Jetty, Kelton and Terrace cemeteries, sun tunnels, salt flats, Zaqistan, and the animal pen display.
