This trail is not for a beginner when it comes to jeeping. While there are some easy portions, there are others spots that require a spotter or the knowledge to pick a line to get you past an obstacle. We spent almost an entire day...More

This is such a beautiful drive along the river and the hiking and climbing trail to see the petroglyphs and Dino prints is a great trail. Continue to scramble around the rocks up higher and you will find more prints. What a great place.

There is a gravel parking lot here with various trails. We did the Indian Petroglyph and Dinosaur Tracks trail. If you are in decent shape and not afraid of heights, the trail is easy and you can reach the top within 15min or so. I...More

Fun and challenging trail. You are driving right near the edge of cliff during part of the trail. Other areas you are climbing large loose rocks and then cruising thru the sandy desert.

As with most of the best trails in the Moab area, you'll find a couple of scary places on this trail, and some places where proper wheel placement will be key as you climb some rocky spots. Use a spotter if you can, and pay...More

Beautiful scenery along the Colorado River. This hike is enjoyable and sports great photo opportunities. There are petroglyphs and dinosaur tracks to be seen off of this trail.

Great trail with excellent views all around. Fun challenges, many, but not all offering easier bypasses. You should be lifted, and have lockers and larger tires. You can do the first part of the trail on the way to Golden Spike, but the entire loop...More
