Jeff Bouton, Fruita, Colorado says

I drive this trail during late fall and winter, because of the cooler temperatures, and the lack of tourists in the Moab area, and I think it's one of the best, most relaxing, easy, trails in the entire Moab region. I'm retired; so I drive it during week days, and I've never seen any other vehicles on this trail. The only vehicles which might experience some minor 'chassis scraping' in a very few areas, would be long wheelbase rigs. I've never even put my Jeep in four wheel drive on this trail: that's how easy it is. Great trail, on a very well maintained dirt road, with beautiful scenery.
