Trail Overview

This 5.6-mile trail takes you from the Dinosaur Tracks south of Sand Hollow to the top of the East Rim. You go from 3100 feet to over 3600. The trail twists and turns over the hills below the rim, and then you arrive on top. The scenery is spectacular, the views are amazing, and the trails are fun. When riding in the desert here, it's a good idea to carry recovery equipment, such as a snatch block, a saw, and a tow rope. During the spring, summer and fall, watch for rattlesnakes. And we don't ever ride without at least one firearm. Temperatures in the summertime get hot, but the winters have a lot of great riding days as they don't get much snow in Hurricane. Starting Feb 2023, Utah is going to require an online course, which they say will take 15-30 minutes, for all off-roaders. You will have to print out something to carry with you.

Difficulty

Areas of wash and erosion are common after heavy or monsoon rains. Some areas are off-camber, but nothing too difficult in this trail.
