We had a late start that day and got to the beginning of the road out of Moab at about 11:30 am. The views were spectacular, with rock formations towering 1000 feet above us and the Colorado/Green River almost a 1000 feet below us at times. The rock formations and colors were amazing. I told my friends that it was... More

Before I went on this trail, I have heard all the rumors about how Subarus/Minivans/BMW X3 are able to drive the 100 miles of White Rim Road. I even though about brining my Subaru Outback onto it. But now after I have gone through it, I absolutely have to say that you really need a high clearance 4WD to do... More

The views and sheer beauty of this place rate a "6". Words can't describe what you'll see.... but I'm rating this a 4 because if you don't know what you are doing here, you can get yourself into serious trouble. The only camp sites available for the dates we went were 65 miles apart. We are a physically fit family... More

Enjoyed a two day trip on White Rim Road with camping at White Crack and Hardscrabble B which were amazing. This is a 100 mile journey that definitely required a 4WD vehicle...much of the road can be done with 2WD but the climb up from Potato Bottom over Hardscrabble Hill would be very challenging simply due to the inclines. Having... More

This is a great place to get away for a drive with plenty of solitude and views. Also, the camping out here, if you reserve a site, is a great place to get shots/views of the night sky without the interference from nearby cities, as there are none!

Scenic Loop around west side of park. However, this is over 100 miles of rough desert road, and best done in a two day trip. Hot and dry. Recommend try the first part and go to see the arch, then return the same way, unless you plan to tent camp on the way.

We just got back from this trip and it was a blast. The ranger at the station was very helpful in providing us information, but we never imagined it would be like it was. First, the scenery is second to none and there is more than enough thrills for the 4wd community without being outright treacherous to novices. I rate... More
