Utah "Club"

Guardsman's Pass if still open. Mount Nebo loop. Alpine Loop Road. There is a nice drive up by Oakley by Smith and Morehouse resevoir.

Those are all dirt track at worst. Another cool drive is the Highway 150 out of Kamas. Its called Mirror Lake Highway. Plenty of little dirt tracks off that.

This time of year they can all be restricted, but not much snow has fallen so possible they are open.

Or head west and south of Tooele for the Pony Express Trail.

Andrew,
Thanks for the tips on where to drive. We opted for the mirror lake scenic byway. We took forest service road 041 which started tame but turned pretty rocky and narrow, it was fun.
We circled all the way to Evanston WY and then back to Deer Valley.
Thanks again we would not have had near as much fun without our recommendation.
D90 source is great.
