The Intermountain Mustang and All-Ford Stampede in Salt Lake City, Utah, is this year's new kid on the block for Pony Trails. We'll tip our hats to Mike and Joyce Epperson from the Northern Utah Mustang Owners Association. With their diligence, they have earned a trail at their event. Between the tag team of Mike and Joyce, who were willing to do just about anything to get a trail, we decided we would head to an area of the country where we haven't been before. So get ready-here we come. Salt Lake City may never be the same. Joyce and Mike, don't say we didn't warn you.

Trail Directions:
From the parking lot of the Heber City Holiday Inn at the intersection of Highway 40 and S.R. 189, we'll head north on Highway 40. At S.R. 224, we'll exit and head to Park City, where we'll stop for lunch and a chance to watch the autocrossers burn away their rubber at the Park City Resort. After lunch, we'll head back to 224 and run to Interstate 80, where we'll head west to Exit 134, then north on S.R. 66 to East Canyon State Park, where we'll stop for some scenic beauty and photo ops. Then we'll head north to Portersville and Cliff Burwell's Garage and Ford Collection. From Burwell's, we'll get back on 66 until we hit Interstate 84. At 84, we'll head east/southeast to Exit 164 and Coalsville, where we'll gas up and slurp down a cold beverage. At Coalsville, we'll pick up S.R. 32 and follow it south through Oakley, Francis, and finally out to U.S. Highway 40, where we'll head south again and return to our host hotel.
