Every now and then I get to spend time in the Duck Creek Village, Utah area.  Of course, when I’m there I try and find interesting places to run.  On my last trip I ran Stout Canyon Road (Forest 063).  This is a nice 9 mile forest service road, generally down hill From UTAH-14 to US-89.

Towards the beginning of the course you will run through forest impacted by the 2012 Shingle Fire.  The area is partially regrown and not ugly, though you have to appreciate the fire damage for what it is.

After that you run through typical Utah forest and eventually into sparse cabin property.  A nice 18 mile round trip.

  • Non Technical
  • gradual incline/decline
  • No cell-service
  • very little traffic
  • Can be muddy
  • No big payoff, though you do get a nice view of the red rocks.
