The Hog Canyon Trail System was visualized by the founders of the Canyon Country 4x4 Club in 1995. Then, in 1998 The Canyon Country 4x4 Club was formed and incorporated. The club consists of environmentally concerned citizens from and around Kanab. Our main concern is to protect, preserve and enjoy our gorgeous area while enjoying our favorite pass time FOUR WHEELING!
In 2002, we approached BLM with the Hog Canyon Trail System on paper. At this time, we brought to their attention the damage that was occuring by the 2% of society that just doesn't care.
The media and other uninformed environmental groups are misrepresenting the truth.
The area is no longer clasified open by BLM, but The Trail System Is Intact. Everyone must stay on the designated trails as marked and enjoy our gorgeous scenery.
Since our beginning, we have been doing worth while community and environmental projects and working to keep our roads and trails open for everyone to enjoy.

Signs Go Up In Hog Canyon!
Nov. 8, 2005 representatives from Utah Parks and Recreation Dept. came to Hog Canyon with signs in hand. Members from the Canyon Country 4x4 Club and Ut/Az ATV Club pounded the Informational and directional signs where they belonged.
Now Four Wheel Drive Enthusiasts can identify trail location and difficulty before they enter.
