Test your rig on “Rock Chucker” and “Widow Maker.”

This iconic loop follows around Arths Rim and offers a variety of fun, difficult obstacles. Many great views including one of the best overlooks in Moab (see above photo). This trail has gotten much more difficult over the years. When we first drove it in 1999, Widow Maker was only about 4 ft. high. Today it’s double that and growing. Very few vehicles can get up it without winching. We found no winch points. We suggest you team up and have a second vehicle take the bypass to the top of the obstacle to winch or serve as a winch point. Trail is open to OHVs. We got our RZR around with a little extra effort, but this trail is very difficult for ATVs.


Trail Ratings Defined

Lifts, bigger tires and lockers recommended. Not for stock vehicles. Optional Rock Chucker is extreme and for big rigs only. Lots of barren slickrock makes route-finding challenging. Possible large new roads for drilling activity may be confusing. Fortunately, the trail is well-marked with MM signs, white dashes and black tire marks. Backtrack if necessary.
