Classic hardcore trail for modified vehicles only. Very high ground clearance, lockers and large tires required, winch recommended. Always drive this trail with a group. Several sections of the route cross barren slickrock where route-finding is extremely difficult. Fortunately, the trail has been marked with painted white lizard symbols, which greatly improve your chances of staying on the trail. Painted symbols wear away over time, so you’ll be glad to have a tracklog.
This trail is one of 55 trails from the book, Guide to Moab, UT Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails, 2nd Edition, by Charles Wells, and is available at www.funtreks.com. less «
