Overview

A few small ledges on way to beautiful overlook.

Fun trip to a very high overlook of the Green River. This is the final leg (the easy portion) of the Easter Jeep Safari Hell Roaring Rim Route. You’ll go by Horsethief Campground near the start. It’s one of the larger BLM campgrounds with 56 sites, picnic tables, fire rings and spaces large enough for motorhomes. It’s popular because it’s close to Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park.

Trail Ratings Defined

A wide graded road until after Waypoint 03, where it narrows and gradually gets rougher. There is one moderate ledge you have to negotiate about 0.2 mile from the end. A car is not going to get through, but an SUV with moderate clearance can make it. If you don’t like the ledge, you’re close enough to walk the rest of the way.

The rocky ledge at 12.1 miles, as described in the book just after Waypoint 04, has gotten quite difficult. I got down the ledge and back up in my stock Wrangler Sport, but it was challenging. Fortunately, you are just a 2/10 mile from a spectacular view at the end. You can avoid the difficult ledge by staying left at Waypoint 04, but the view at the end is not as good, plus you still have to walk some.
