This may be the most popular trail in Moab. It’s very close to town, not too long, challenging in a fun way and amazingly scenic. If you only have time for one difficult trail, this is the one you want to do. The trail is intertwined with the Slickrock Bike Trail. Be very careful at crossing points and remember that bikers always have the right-of-way. There is a fee to enter the Sand Flats Recreation Area.

As you pull into the parking lot at the start of the trail, you’ll see a new road on the left marked EXIT ONLY. This new exit allows you to turn around at any point along the trail and return to the start. A new road has been created south and parallel to fin on which you normally enter. It was always a problem getting out there because that fin is so narrow. If you return to the start, you’ll see an exit sign to the right just south of Lake Michigan.
