The area boasts top ATV trails (check out the Prospector Trail Complex), hiking trails and great gaming and hunting. Top human-made attractions include Deseret Peak Complex and Utah Motorsports Campus. If you're looking to stay in the town, consider driving or hiking to the Bingham Mine Overlook or attending a weekend star party at the Stansbury Park Observatory.
