A great spot for the weekend warrior, the Glade Run Recreation Area is comprised of 19,000 acres of sandy arroyos, slick rock and rolling terrain. Vegetation is sparse, primarily consisting of common grasses, rabbitbrush, sagebrush, junipers, and pinyons.
The recreation area is split into two off-highway vehicle use zones. The northern three-quarters of the Glade are managed for limited trail use and 3,800 acres on the south end are managed as an open OHV area. Challenging slick rock and wide sandy washes provide fun for off road enthusiasts in the open OHV section.
Rock crawling, an extreme form of off road driving using vehicles, from stock to highly modified, to surmount obstacles, is a popular activity. In rock crawling, drivers maneuver four-wheel-drive vehicles over very harsh terrain. Driving locations include boulders, slickrock, mountain foothills, rock piles, mountain trails, etc. Rockcrawling is about slow-speed, careful, precise driving. Rock crawlers often drive up, down and across obstacles that would appear impassable to the average person.
