*What is the Dirt Crew? It’s a group of people working towards a common goal on the trails. We have so many people using the trails that we need help informing and educating the users about all aspects of trail use.

Who should join? Hikers, bikers, horseback riders and OHV users who frequently use the trails and want to volunteer 10 hours a month to protect the places they love. 

Celebrate 63 years with State Parks by coming out to play! Check us out on Facebook and Twitter @wasatchmountain
