Moderate. A few small ledges and rocky spots. We encountered one sandy section with deep washouts, but managed to get past. Follow white dashes across the slickrock.


It took 8 hours to travel 35 miles from Moab to Thompson back in 1883, the year passenger train service was available from Thompson to Salt Lake City. Travelers could stop at the Halfway Stage Station to rest, eat or even sleep overnight. Source: Kiosk at the site.
