This is a fantastic drive if you have 2 days to spend in Canyonlands. We were able to drive from the visitor's center/Shafer Trail switchbacks to the Murphy Hogsback camp in about 5 hours (with many stops for pictures), camp overnight, and then drive out of the park through the Mineral Road switchbacks in about 4 hours (BLM 129 on...

My friend encouraged me and my family to go with them and camp overnight. We made it a three day trip and camped in two different spots and enjoyed every minute of it. There's such a wide range of scenery to see on this trip from the White Rim canyon to the beautiful red rocks and the view of other... More

We have both driven and bicycled this trail. You need a high clearance 4X4 vehicle to go here. This is a pretty easy trail, good for inexperienced off roaders. Don't miss Mussleman Arch. It's so cool! Also, check out the chert knappings on the ground at White Crack. There's a trail there, you can hike down and see chert deposits.... More

We did the whole trail in 9 hours. Beautiful scenery. Rough roads, tight switchbacks, narrow squeezes and high ledges. I'm not a fan of heights, but I survived. Murphy's Hogback and Hardscrabble Hill will test anyone's nerves. Now that I've calmed down, I think I would do it again.

What an amazing way to celebrate a friends milestone birthday! We went with Holiday Rivers Guiding and they helped make the entire experience that much better. I'm a novice mountain biker and this trail challenged me at times (i walked up a lot of Murphy's Hogback and Hardscrabble) but it also invigorated me and gave me memories for a lifetime!... More

Unbelievable views of huge rock formations with varied colors and shapes. We enjoyed watching rock climbers. Limited service but well worth the visit.

I recently completed a 3 night / 4 day mountain biking tour of the White Rim with Western Sprit, and all I can say is "wow." The guides were amazing, the location jaw-dropping beautiful, and the experiences unforgettable. I did the trip as a solo traveler, and I must say this is the PERFECT trip for solo travel. You can...

We traveled 100 miles over two thrilling days including an overnight at White Crack camp. The views of the Canyonlands from this vantage point are without comparison. Seeing both the night and sunrise and sunset are incomparable. It is a wilderness experience no doubt so be prepared and watch the weather.
