Trail Overview

This is a short but super steep and fun side trip from Box Car Loop. The middle portion of the route takes you along a shelf road, and finishes in a straight, flat section. It's a great ATV and UTV route, and the trailhead is located at the exit of Box Car Loop, Trail #64, so its easy to do both of these trails in the same day.

Difficulty

Difficult. Hardest part of trail is the initial short stairstep descent. This is followed by a longer smooth slickrock descent, which has a higher pucker factor, but is not as difficult. Aggressive, stock, high-clearance 4x4 SUVs can do this trail with experienced driver. Rear locker helps coming back up the steep stairsteps (pictured above).

Access Description

Drive south from Moab on Highway 191 about 32 miles. Turn right on paved Needles Overlook Road at sign for Canyon Rims Recreation Area soon after mile marker 93. Follow paved road northwest 15 miles and bear right toward Anticline Overlook. Road immediately changes to gravel. Continue another 7.1 miles and watch for small road on left marked 37D.
