Stay off this unless you are in a 4x4 vehicle and experienced driving a 4x4. Your route will be crawling over rock or driving in deep sand. The first 10 miles from Shafer can be accomplished in a lifted truck if the route is DRY. The portion from Mineral Bottom into the park is very very difficult sand regardless if... More

There are many tour providers to choose from, therefore be sure to look at them all to figure out which one fits your needs best. Rode the White Rim Trail over 4 days and camped each night with a tour operator. We had the perfect number of people 10 total and 2 tour guides. It made this trip extremely easy... More

There seem to be 2 different trails reviewed under this topic. We visited the trail overlooking the canyon, not the 4-wheel drive trail in the canyon. This is an easy walk to fabulous canyon views. Even if you already did Grand View, take time for this one, too. Every view gives you a different feel for this majestic place!

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.
