The new Tacoma goes off-roading through Utah.

The new Tacoma goes off-roading through Utah.

Utah. Home to five national parks and a crawling rock landscape makes the perfect backdrop to this episode of Epic Drives. Host Arthur St. Antoine takes the new 2016 Toyota Tacoma off-road through the mountainous landscape with stops at all five parks.

But before the epic off-roading begins, St. Antoine meets up with Red Bull BMX riders to check out their practice trail that starts at the top of King Kong, a steep, narrow cliff. What the riders do on their bikes mirrors just some of what the 2016 Tacoma will do at the different parks.

Zion is first up on the park list, followed by Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, the Arches, and finishes in Canyonlands. At Capitol Reef, the Tacoma can stretch its legs through rough terrain, water, and dusty trails before moving on to the next location. Before the final spot, it’s time to make a stop at the famous Delicate Arch and get some local expertise from retired organic chemist and self-described amateur geologist Lee Shenton.

More adventures ensue, with a jaunt down the Colorado River and even more rock climbing in the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, but check out the video below to see all the epic off-roading and side adventures with Art St. Antoine.
