Trail Overview

Extremely popular with all types, including hikers and mountain bikers, you'll love this drive and its amazing red rock scenery and breathtaking views of the area. There is not a lot of parking available, so it isn't recommened for unlicensed vehicles.


Difficult: This is a real 4-wheel-drive trail, although the ledges are manageable with careful tire placement. By far the toughest spot is 'The Steps.' They require very high ground clearance. The most aggressive stock SUVs can do them, but most stock vehicles will bottom out, so skid plates are recommended. Trail is very narrow and backing is sometimes required to pass. Not recommended for extra wide and extra long vehicles.
