Wayne’s World is a brand new trail for the 2019 Winter Jamboree! It was developed on Sand Mountain in the spring of 2018 by the Desert Rats and UPLA. The trail starts at the Red Gate (next to the Green Gate) and ends at the Green Gate in a 6 ½ mile oblong loop through a part of Sand Mountain that has not received much attention in the past.
Spectacular views of the Pine Valley Mountains, Zion National Park, Sand Hollow Reservoir and the Hurricane Cliffs.
Sand dunes, steep slickrock, off camber sections, washes and ledges.
There are many obstacles on the trail. Many have names such as an obstacle called Wild Thing
, a 10-foot dry waterfall that will get your attention. Another obstacle, Stairway to Heaven
, is a quick series of four steep climbs on sandstone with ledges that will test your ability to see the line and use your lockers. Then, a slightly off-camber ledge that is called Staying Alive
before three more steps and on to a short, slightly off-camber climb on slickrock properly named Gotta Have Faith
. About then it’s time for a lunch break where you can try the optional 35-foot high sandstone outcropping called “The Terminator”. After lunch you continue through more sandstone descents and climbs and head over to an area near Double Sammy where you will squeeze through a sandstone fin area called We Will Rock You
and then to an off-camber sand chute named Don’t Stop me Now
. The last named obstacle is a steep one-way decent in the sand dunes…. End Of The Line
. All of this along with stunning panoramic views. This trail is a good introduction on what to expect on a 6 rated trail with nothing extreme but a real confidence builder preparing you for higher rated Jamboree Trails!
