Trail Overview

You'll find so much to do here that you may want to camp and stay the weekend. It is a really fun area with corkscrew high banks, tricky narrow sections and great scenery. There is a large staging area at the trailhead.

Trail was great. No snow and not much mud. Only went to mini Moab and back but was steady sailing all the way there and back

Mostly dry. Some big ruts, but you can take lines around. Didn't get busy until last part.

Had a great day. Some of the further trails were still closed but got to do around 20 some miles after figuring out how to use the app for my first itme. Will be coming back in the summer.
