One of our favorite Jeep trails in Moab. Big obstacles and slickrock. A beautiful arch to stop and view. Obstacles are for experienced drivers but not too over the top crazy. Make sure to research the trail before you go so you know if it is within your driving skills. Fun!

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.

The view through the arch half way up shows the Moab Rim parking lot far below. This trail combines slick rock, some sand (best to ride right after a big thunderstorm if you can), a little easy gravel road, and some great technical mountain biking. You share the trail with keeps, which is a big plus - fun to watch... More

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 attention to his/her instructions. I've done this trail in a bone stock Toyota FJ-Cruiser, so... 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 is really fun and scenic.

It doesn't look like much from the parking lot, but once you are on the trail, away from the 4-wheelers, you get to taste solitude with a backdrop of stunning views. Easy to trip because your gaze is so distracted. We positioned ourselves for a sweet, quiet sunset. Ahhhhhh, take a deep breath.

Always a favorite off road trail in our jeep. Be sure to consult local knowledge on the condition/setup of your vehicle before going. There are some challenges and outstanding vistas here. Outhouse available at the trail head. Track is marked and pretty clear to follow.
