Trail Overview

Fins & Things is a great example of the famous "slick rock" sandstone of Moab. It is located in the Sand Flats Recreation Area, which requires a fee. Prepare for steep climbs and descents, deep sand, and loose rocks. Follow the one-way travel signs.


Difficult. Very steep slickrock climbs and descents. Few big ledges to get hung up on. Easier in short wheelbased vehicle. Compact, aggressive, stock SUVs can do it with skilled driver.
