This road is a quiet winding pathway overlooking Central, Utah. The road is flanked with Utah Juniper trees and plenty of small rabbits and squirrels. You'd find the course is a great run for some elevation gain and scenery. I'd recommend using a GPS as their are several dirt roads that may confuse you that intersect the road you see on the map (the intersecting roads are not on the map). It appears that the road is infrequently traveled and provides clean air and some good views. Not all the waypoints are noted on the map (for clarity purposes) but can be seen here.

1. Go North from St. George on State Route 18 or Bluff Street.
2. Travel through the communities of Diamond Valley, Dammeron Valley, Veyo, then to the Central Junction.
3. At the Central 4-Way, park near the intersection at waypoint 001.
4. Follow the map and head West up the dirt road.
5. Enjoy the run!
