Trail Overview
Rainbow Terrace
Rainbow Terrace runs west along phenomenal Rainbow Rocks. Challenging rock formations and some meandering curves take you along sandy wash bottoms. The trail itself is a fun loop, but you can also combine it with the Crystal Geyser trail to complete the route featured at the Easter Jeep Safari.
History
Highlight: Rainbow Rocks (a.k.a.“The Needles”) is striated with red rock layers. When the setting sun hits the massive wall of rock just right, especially after a rain, it can produce a dramatic, photogenic rainbow-like effect.
Getting There
From downtown Moab, head north on Hwy. 191 about 11 miles and turn left on Hwy. 313. Go about 8.5 miles west and turn right on Dubinky Well Road after overlook on left. When the road forks at 1.4 miles, bear right. Go another 5 miles and turn left on Spring Canyon Point Road. Go west 2.2 miles and turn right on a one-lane road just past distinctive Tombstone Rock.
