As part of a 4-day backpacking adventure, we hiked some of White Rim Road. I'm glad I did this on my own two feet rather than on four wheels, since some of the road looked pretty intense for a vehicle. In fact, we saw a...More

We were only in the White Rim Road for a short duration, after driving down the Shafer Trail. The views were impressive and I would suggest driving the road to Musselman Arch; at the very least. You can turn around and head up the Shafer...More

This was one time I was glad I was on a tour as you are really high up and close to the edge of the cliffs. It is scenic and beautiful. The vistas are beautiful.

We traveled a relatively short distance on the White Rim Road from the Shafer Trail to Mussleman Arch. I would love to take 2 or 3 days and travel the entire White Rim Road but we loved the portion of the road we saw. The...More

You can cover the road in a day. However, it is my personal opinion that it will be a very long and crappy day. It is about 150 miles from pavement and back to pavement. That is a lot of miles to cover. There are... More

Not sure who you are asking this. But I can tell you that in June, it is hot, hot, hot. Even camping at night will be hot. If you are planning to get a motel room, then White Rim Road is not the best idea. There are many... More
