Police officers and their families on Saturday helped dedicate the Fallen Peace Officer Trail near Moab.

The 14-mile all-terrain vehicle trail was originally intended to be named the Brody Young Trail in honor of the Utah State Parks ranger who survived a shooting in 2010. Organizers say Young insisted that the trail be named for all officers killed or wounded in the line of duty.
