We traveled 100 miles over two thrilling days including an overnight at White Crack camp. The views of the Canyonlands from this vantage point are without comparison. Seeing both the night and sunrise and sunset are incomparable. It is a wilderness experience no doubt so be prepared and watch the weather.

Some drive this trail quickly as a challenge to their driving skills but you will be traveling through some of the most beautiful and unusual country in the West. You can make reservations for the White Rim Trail campsites 4 months in advance on the Canyonlands National Park website and they fill up fast. It's a challenging trip over some... More

This was our favorite overlook at Canyonlands. It is about a 2 mile round trip hike out to the overlook point. The hike is nothing special, but the end is fantastic. We were the only visitors at this overlook and the silence was awesome. The canyon below is an incredible site.

Did White Rim in VW dune buggy. Carry extra water ( 8 L) just incase you meet bicyclists who are in need. Started at 0700 & finished about 1800 using 10 gallons of gas. I ran out of gas with in sight of Shell station at Arch view RV park.

We did this trip in a 2WD Lexus RX350 and made it fine. However, Unless you are and experienced driver on rocky roads and washouts, I don't recommend it without 4WD. Also, if it has rained in the last few day or is predicted to rain on the day you are going, don't risk it. Having said all that, it... More

I've done the WRT twice on a dirt bike with a fairly large group of riders. Both times starting at Mineral Bottom and exiting once at the Shaffer Switchbacks and the other returning to Moab via Potash Rd. If you don't stop for many pictures (you will want to) be prepared for at least 5 hours of riding at a... More

We were in a Ford Expedition 4x4. The Expy made the rip with little effort. One of the best off road trips we have taken. Not for the faint of heart! We left from Moab and traveled to White Rim Trail via the Shaffer trail.

This road can be driven by most stock 4WD vehicles (check for warnings on the National Park Services Canyonlands Page. Note this road can take 8 to 10 hours.
