The start of this trail is not for the faint of heart! It is a narrow, rough trails the skirt the edge of the rock as you travel down into the canyon. The views are unbelievable! Once you are in to the canyon, the road goes for several miles until you connect with Potash Road. The going is rough and... More

The white rim trail is a awesome trip that takes a year in planning if you want to camp along the way. You must have a permit for the campsites. To do the trail justice you need to spend at least two nights on the trail. We were rained out last year which is a possibility each and every year... More

Truly stunning vistas and solitude are the reason to ride White Rim. Assess your conditioning and experience honestly before you decide on riding. There are no services of any sort and no bail-outs on this 100-mile loop. Some sections are well graded dirt, but most are simply a double-track 4wd trail. If you are less experienced, chose a qualified outfitter... More

WOW! This is amazing. Get in your 4x4 or truck and have a thrilling, breathtaking and amazing time. This is not a trip for cars! You need a high clearance vehicle. This is amazing especially the trip from 313 to the bottom of the canyon. Lots of small hikes to see the Colorado, and natural bridges.

Before you even consider driving this road, don't make the same mistake I did. Research it. Research it well. This is not a short jaunt through Canyonlands. This is not designed for your 4WD Subaru, small truck or SUV. This is not even designed for a jeep unless you have proper gauge tires designed for off-roading. What this road (and... More

The a White Rim is a short trail on paper, but looong when you're actually on it. The trail gets a little gnarly in some places, but the views are amazing.
