Go for it! Great views, and not crowded

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

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
