SUU is a great place to go play the game. The parking lot at the northwest corner of Center and 300 W is available to the public and the campus ground are open 24/7.
There are also a lot of portals along Coal Creek Trail. Take 200 S east until the road curves and park on the side of the road. The paved trail runs east into Cedar Canyon for approximately one mile.
You can also find many portals in the downtown area bordered by Center St, Main St, 400 N, and 100 W and in the Park Discovery and Aquatic Center areas of Leigh Hill as well as Frontier Homestead State Park.
