    Eagle Scout Signs Technical 4x4 Trails

    If Kyle Miller, of Boy Scout Troop 1670, was looking for a challenge, he sure got what he was looking for. Supervising an army of volunteers, Kyle orchestrated the marking of three highly technical four-wheel drive trails in the Sand Mountain OHV Area, successfully completing one of the most innovative and difficult Eagle Scout projects attempted in the St George Field Office!

    Kyle and his volunteers used white paint and stencils with a jeep graphic to mark the technical trails known as Double Sammy, East Rim, and Sliplock. The project included organizing 20 four-wheel drive vehicles to navigate the terrain and complete the work.

    “Without a doubt, this was one of the most impressive Eagle Scout projects ever done for our office. All the four-wheelers who like to play on Sand Mountain will truly benefit from Kyle’s work.” said Dave Kiel, BLM Recreation Planner.

    When asked what he found most challenging about the project, Kyle replied, “For me, it was finding out what it really means to be a leader.” Talk about learning the hard way — orchestrating a full fleet of vehicles while successfully completing such a challenging project is no easy feat!

      Cool project! This would be an amazing way to get close up photos of petroglyphs that modern humans can’t reach!
