Hey Joe Canyon

1 Review
Location Moab, UT
Rating Difficult,
Length 8.6mi
Time 2hrs

Vehicle Types


Narrow trail along river’s edge ends at equipment-strewn mine site.

The attraction here is a collection of old mining artifacts scattered around the Hey Joe Mine site. The river scenery is great, too, but you may be too busy fighting the elements to notice. A great trail for ATVs and UTVs. Shaded dry camping at the bottom.


Trail Ratings Defined

In several places, this trail is literally falling into the Green River, while aggressive, scratchy tamarisk threatens to choke off access completely. Washes have gotten deeper and rocks continue to fall across the trail. Fortunately, locals work hard to make repairs and burn back the tamarisk. At this writing, the route is still part of the Easter Jeep Safari. We took our RZR on this trail rather than risk scratching our newer Rubicons.

Priscilla and I rode this trail three years ago and have dreamed of running it again ever since...We will finally be returning in the beginning of this August, This time with *FunTreks* map book and chip installed in our Garmin Zumo XT...This is one of the most glandulous Trails there are, and the river is unbelievably wide and swift...Phenomenal...
