The a White Rim is a short trail on paper, but looong when you're actually on it. The trail gets a little gnarly in some places, but the views are amazing.

I have ridden the White Rim trail two times on my mountain bike and hope to return for more. The views change with nearly every mile, you are always seeing something new. The restrooms and campgrounds are primitive but that's what I expect, to get away from the world. We have ridden in groups, some with great bike skills and... More

Book your permit early to get the best dates and camp sites. We had a blast with 12 bikers and 2 sag wagons. We camped at Airport, then Candlestick (which made for a long second day but a short last day), then Labyrinth. All of the camp spots are good after a long day of bike riding - Google around... More

It's a freaking DOOZY!!! So either pack lots of food and water for a long day trip and be in the kind of shape Lance Armstrong is in, or be smart, and pack a tent and supplies and camp overnight. Then wake up to an awesome sunrise and finish the ride...good for couples but guys, don't drag your girlfriends up... More

We did the entire route in a day in our jeep. It's a long one day trip but more than possible without to much rush. Scenery is undiscribable. The route is fairly easy with a high clearence vehicle, only downside is it is very narrow making it hard to pass mountain bikes or slow moving vehicles, also it's not one... More

Yes, it is a beautiful area, but it is a long way around and you have to keep to your permitted schedule. It is in the part and it you want to spend extra time in one area to explore a little more and your permit doesn't state that you will be there, you need to move on to your... More

Where do I start! This route has so many fantastic views it's hard to put it in words. Countless photo ops will keep you on the trail for as long as you'd like. I spent 6 1/2 hours on a trip tha I thought would last maybe 3 to 4 hours. Just do it!

Travelled 14 miles of this trail from the junction of Schaeffer Canyon and back. When you are in Canyonlands and looking into the Canyon you really get a perspective of the depth of the canyon. Once we were down on the White Rim Trail you could look up and all the way down to the bottom of the canyon and... More

So incredibly beautiful. We like how the scenery changes a bit from place to place. The campsite may be the prettiest in all the land! So neat to see Mesa Arch from a completely different perspective. If you like the outdoors, this ride should be on your bucket list

We started out on Schaeffer Canyon and then went onto White Rim. Long and bumpy, but great scenery. Lot of places to get out and view surroundings.
