3 Day Fastpack Gear Loadout

The Skyline Trail

The Skyline Trail is a high elevation trail located in the Tushar Mountain Range near Beaver in Southern Utah. Last summer, the OV crew successfully fastpacked through the entire route, covering over 62 miles and about 10,000 feet of elevation gain in 3 days.
