Tooele County is one of Utah’s most uniquely beautiful places, and features some of the most dramatic and diverse landforms on earth. There are 11,000-foot high peaks, an inland sea, verdant valleys, and a mysterious desert with a bizarre expanse of white salt. The place is also enormous. As Utah’s second largest county, the state of New Jersey could just about fit inside its nearly 7,000 square miles. To go along with Tooele County’s impressive size, the opportunities to explore—for real adventure and recreation—are boundless. If you love to hike, ride a bike or horse, camp in the mountains, ride an OHV across a desert, or even scuba dive, Tooele County’s “Visibility Endless” awaits you.
What also awaits you is Tooele County’s compelling “Old West” history, like the Pony Express Trail, the Donner-Reed Party and more. Known for our remarkable 100-mile views, the county is also renowned for being the “Fastest Place on Earth,” with land speed racing on the Bonneville Salt Flats, and thrilling automotive and motorcycle racing at Miller Motorsports Park.
All of this, and less than 30 minutes west of Salt Lake City.
