Vehicle Types


You must start early to complete this remote trip in one day.

This trail meanders below the scenic western rim of Canyon Rims Recreation Area and is bordered on the west by Canyonlands National Park. Starkly beautiful, rugged, and very remote. Don’t go alone. Take lots of water and extra gas. Get an early start from Moab if you expect to return the same day. A fun weekend trip if you add Lockhart Canyon, trail #67. Lots of great dispersed camping and a BLM fee campground on the south end. A fun trail for ATVs and UTVs the first 8.2 miles. After that, for the next 1.3 miles, ATVs and UTVs are prohibited in Canyonlands National Park. You can also ride to the park boundary if you come in from the south end.


Trail Ratings Defined

The first mile through a narrow canyon is the most difficult part. After that, lesser challenges continue until Wpt. 03. Our stock 2-door Wrangler Sport with 32’s had to be strapped one time in the canyon, but our 4-door Rubicon with 35’s had no problems. If you drive the trail from the other end and can’t get through the canyon, it’s a very long return drive. Without extra gas, you could run out.

Just completed the trail from the Canyonlands side into Moab. It had snowed the night before but is almost all melted now. Road/trail conditions are good. The side closest to Moab was a bit technical and a lot of fun. The rest of the trail offers some great views. We did this trail because Elephant Hill was closed due to snow.
