Difficult, long, but very scenic and exciting, this is one of the most popular trails near Moab. Hell's Revenge intertwines with the Slickrock Bike Trail, so be very careful at crosspoints. Bikers have the right of way. Sand Flat Recreation Area has a small fee.
When Dan Mick came to Moab in 1973, Hell’s Revenge didn't have a name. He and friend George Schultz named the trail while driving it on one particularly hot day. George was the first president of the Red Rock 4-Wheelers and Dan was the second (1986-88). Mickey’s Hot Tub got its name because Dan was the first to drive it.
From S 400 E, on the east side of Moab, take Mill Creek Drive east 0.5 mile. Continue straight uphill at the cemetery on Sand Flats Road. After 1.7 miles, enter Sand Flats Recreation Area and pay fee. The parking lot for Hell’s Revenge is on the left just ahead. If riding an unlicensed vehicle, park in the lower lot where the trail ends. You are permitted to ride up the paved road to where the trail starts.
