You'll need to obtain a free day-use permit to access this amazing trail. There is a 50 per day limit. If you want to camp, you'll need to pay for an additional permit. This is a popular destination, and permits for White Crack and Murphy Hogback Campgrounds sell out quickly. No services are available so bring water and fuel. Licensed dirt bikes are allowed, but ATVs and UTVs are not. No pets or fires.
From downtown Moab, take Highway 191 north about 11 miles and turn left on Highway 313. Follow signs to Canyonlands National Park. Total distance about 32 miles.
