Robert Sutherland’s 105 Mile Trek from Cedar City to Jacob’s Lake, Aug – Sept 2023

. . . This page links to a series of 21 video’s highlighting different parts of Robert Sutherland’s 105 mile trek from Cedar City, Utah to Jacob’s Lake, Arizona in late August and early September of 2023. On several of the first Days he was rained on, there was a zero visibility sand storm, and water from his canteen got into the video battery pack, making it so several of the video’s he shot were destroyed.

This swhchs.org site is largely for kids and those interested in history. The Southwest is one of the few places left in the world where one can have an adventure like Robert describes in these videos. Next year he plans to hiking from the Maverick on the south end of Cedar City, up the mountain, to Brian Head, across Eagle Mountain, back down the mountain north of Fiddler’s Canyon, and to the Maverick on the South end of Enoch at Old Highway 91 and Minersville Road. We plan to share documentation of this next trek here also.
