Cliff Hanger

1 Review
Location Moab, UT
Rating Difficult,
Length 8.6mi
Time 4hrs

Vehicle Types


Narrow shelf road features huge dropoff along cliff.

Trail meanders along high rocky cliffs and offers nonstop challenges. Incredible scenery especially at the end. Our RZR performed better than our Jeep on this trail. We would caution ATV riders to wear a helmet. Very popular mountain biking area with many other bike trails intersecting. Be courteous; pull over and let bikers pass.


Trail Ratings Defined

Strictly hard-core. No stock SUVs. Huge ledge along cliff edge at 2.6 miles is not for the faint of heart. At Wpt. 03, if you’re not careful, it is easy to slide sideways and roll over.

William F. Dawson, says

Not for the faint of heart. The trail starts with an immediate set of stair step desents, crosses a dry creek bed then challenges you with a 3-4 foot ledge. There are a series of very challenging obstacles until you reach the namesake obstacle on the face of a 400 foot cliff. Our winch was never used but only because we were with a group that had a couple of very experienced spotters.. careful wheel placement is the key to this trail. Cliffhanger is a “in and out” trail meaning that the only way is the way you came in. This can cause some very serious thoughts while in the middle of the trail.
