This was may second trip the the White Rim Trail. Last year I completed most of the trail in one day (bypassed Shafer Switchbacks, taking Potash road instead). This year I planned a slower trip on the trail, reserving three of the overnight camp sites along the trail. Weather completely different this year, with rain showers and thunder showers. So...

White Rim Trail – the Mecca of mountain biking. I have ridden this ~100 mile trail twice with very serious mountain bike racers who have raced all over the U.S. and maintain that the White Rim is the most scenic and best biking. This trip deserves 2 overnights and you must put in for the campsites 90 days in advance... More

We did the entire trail in one day in our Jeep Grand Cherokee. What a ride! We were blown away by what we saw. Vistas, canyons, cliffs, rock mountains......words cannot express it. Scenery like no where else. But be warned. It'll test the limits of your vehicle as well as your own endurance. You'll find yourself on narrow goat paths... More

We used Navtec expeditions in Moab, Utah for our tour. I highly recommend this tour and this company. You do not want to take your vehicle on this adventure.

This trail goes under the rim and ends back at the parking lot. Great views, not crowded, not difficult but is a good distance (6.8 miles) and wonderful scenery.

We road the White Rim with two other families, a total of seven kids age range from 5-11, and seven adults, three trucks and 14 mountain bikes. My only regret is not having another driver so I could have rode more. I found the driving a bit scary and the riding fun at times but mostly very scenic and quite... More

Rode this on my xt225 motorcycle with a group of friends and it was stunning. Amazing. I was drop jawed in awe most of the time. What an incredible way to see the landscape! A pinnacle moment in my life - it was just that beautiful!

We drove the trail in a single day, and don't regret it, but it would be a lot of fun to take more time. The views of the canyons are stunning and you get so close to the edge, it gives you a real appreciation for how deep they are. We finished our drive in the dark. I got out... More

We initially thought we would ride this 105-mile trail on bicycles but a shoulder injury two days before turned me into a SAG wagon driver. We went in October, 2009 and the weather was perfect for all five days of the ride. Our vehicle was 4WD but did not have a low-range capability which was not a good idea. They... More
