Trail Overview

This trail is a cut-off a few miles from Hanksville to Goblin Valley and Wild Horse or vice versa with this fun short dirt road. You can enter from Goblin Valley Road or State Route 24. The trail has cattle gates on both sides that you are responsible for opening and closing. On the east side of the trail, you'll find small sandy dunes broken up by dirt. The west side of the trail is a rocky section that anything from a dirt bike to high clearance 4x4 should have little problems with. Make sure to check out Molly's Castle while you're there. Signs are posted saying no camping along this trail.

Had to get out a few times to pick the best line. Outback Wilderness did not have any problems.

We did this with our 4x4 Sprinter van. Would probably rate it closer to a 4 and put it at medium. Maybe that's just for Sprinters! Some rock climbing on the west end, some sandy hill climbs.

Great trail! Fun but not too difficult. The trail is mostly sand with some minor rock crawling along the way. There is one gate that is not locked.
