Overview

Amazing back way to Canyonlands National Park.

We recommend you drive this canyon from top to bottom to enjoy the views as you descend. A great way to return from Canyonlands National Park, Dead Horse Point State Park, or Gemini Bridges, Trail #22.

Trail Ratings Defined

Easy most of the time; however, after heavy rainstorms, narrow canyon is prone to washouts and rock falls. Check conditions with BLM. Sometimes they have to close the road for repairs. Two-wheel- drive vehicles okay going down, but you’ll be better with 4-wheel drive going up. Our stock Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk had no problems.

Ran the trail from south to north. Overall the trail is easy, however, waypoint 2 (the tunnel and Pucker Pass) are rather difficult. At the tunnel, the trail has been torn up terribly. In a stock Xterra, I had a difficult time making a decent line through all the rocks and ruts. At the narrows section, the trail has a lot of basketball-sized rocks in soft sandy soil making them roll all over and making you lose traction. Those two sections (in my opinion) should be rated as blue, the rest of the trail is green. After those two obstacles, the rest of the trail was easy.
