Trail Overview

This popular trail, mixed with easy and moderate terrain, is in the Cameo Cliffs OHV Area (i.e. Hook & Ladder Area). Follow cliff edges along the northern half of the route and end at a spectacular view of Wilson Arch. Popular for ATVs but most routes are wide enough for UTVs and Jeeps. Plan on stopping for pictures and lunch at Waypoint 6. The Cameo Cliffs to Wilson Arch route is now part of the Easter Jeep Safari.

Difficulty

Moderate. A mix of easy and moderate terrain. About a quarter mile before Waypoint 06 there is a steep downhill ledge that is borderline difficult, but an experienced driver can get a stock, high-clearance, 4x4 SUV down and up this spot. If you don't want to try it, you're close enough to walk. The view at the end is worth the effort. Trails are marked with numbered brown posts. Slickrock is marked with painted white dashes and red-tipped rebar.
