We’re just a week away from our run over Trappers Loop to the Huntsville Barbecue Company in beautiful Huntsville, Utah next Saturday, 19 August.
We’ll meet at the east end of the Hogle Zoo Parking lot at 9:00 for a 9:30 departure. We’ll go up Emigration Canyon to Utah 65 where we’ll turn north to East Canyon Reservoir and then west on Utah 66 down the canyon and into Morgan where we’ll drain n’ gain at the Phillips 66 on North State Street near Interstate 84. From there we go under the interstate onto the Old Highway Road (N 700 E) west to Mountain Green, over Trapper’s Loop (UT 167) North and into Ogden Valley. Then we’ll turn right onto Utah 39 to go to Huntsville where we’ll have lunch at the Huntsville Barbeque Company on the west side of Huntsville Square (235 South, 7400 East).
Parking will be along the west side of the Huntsville Square park, just across the street from the restaurant. We’ll order off the menu inside and then they’ll have special seating for us on the shady lawn in the back.
After lunch options to return home include back the way you came, down Utah 39 through Ogden Canyon and onto Highway 89 south back to SLC or, for the more adventurous, you can continue north around the lake to Eden, then Liberty and up/over North Ogden Divide and back onto Highway 89 to return to SLC.
Here’s a link to Google Maps for a preview of the route. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XDsW7MYNrO-i4QbKPbYSNiKGxrY&usp=sharing
Gas up the LBC, check the fluids and maybe bring a large wet towel to clean the barbecue off your face and hands before getting back in the car! Hope everyone can join us for the run.
See you next week!
