Ashley Hayes ReportingOn this weekend's SportsBeat Saturday, Rod Zundel begins his tour of Utah towns for KSL's Outdoor Adventures series.

This week was spent in Tooele. Ashley Hayes headed to the hills to film one segment for the show about horses. If you enjoy horseback riding, there may be no better place to enjoy your horse than the Stansbury Mountains.

Paul Dart, a range technician for the U.S. Forest Service, said, "There's some extensive trail systems here. We've got Deseret Peak at 11,030 feet. And there's a trail to that for hikers and horsemen."

The Stansbury Front trail connects the South and North Willow canyons running along the front ridge of the mountains for about 30 miles, at an elevation of 7,000 feet. The views are spectacular and the terrain unique to this mountain range, with elements of desert and alpine.

Rowe Harrison, also with the U.S. Forest Service, pointed out, "It's a great recreation place and it's not been overly populous right now. So it's not inundated with a lot of people. You can be pretty private up here."
