Trail Overview
Box Car Loop
This less-traveled trail winds along the west side of Hatch Wash. The area is wide open at first, but then the trail takes a steep turn down to beautiful, rolling canyon floors and washes. San Juan Public Entry and Access Rights (SPEAR) mark the trails and help protect OHV rights. Please stay within the marked route.
Getting There
Drive south from Moab on Highway 191 about 32 miles. Turn right on paved Needles Overlook Road, C.R. 133, at sign for Canyon Rims Recreation Area soon after mile marker 93. Follow paved road northwest 15 miles and bear right toward Anticline Overlook, C.R. 132. Road immediately changes to gravel. Continue north 0.1 mile and turn right on Eightmile Road. Look for brown post marker with #36.
