Good trails

Hello all I am new to Jeeping and I live in northern Utah and I wanted to find some good beginner trails that I could start out on. Any ideas?

Where at in Northern Utah? I'm in Logan, there's some pretty gnarly stuff up millville canyon and providence. Right hand fork is pretty sketchy in the snow and mud.

It's fun. Most people go to American Fork in the summer months because its cooler and you can get shade where 5 mile there isn't really any

My wife and I are headed out to Rattlesnake on Saturday. One of my favorite trails to spend a random weekend on.

Yes. It's scenic and has some very cool desert views, has cell service all the way to the top ( at least for me, I have Verizon) so you can go alone with alot more comfort than some trails, and the way it's run it can be very difficult or very easy. It all just depends on which bypasses you want to take. Our current plan is to be at the Chevron just before you head west out of town at 10 AM if anybody wanted to tag along. I'll keep the thread updated with what time we'll be there exactly. Anybody would be welcome to join us.

Hmmmm my wife has no plans for me on Saturday I will most likely come out to play with the XJ cause it has AC and the YJ does not. Not to mention it rides a lot better.
