Trail Overview

Moab may be full of amazing views, but this one certainly won't disappoint! You leave from the small sand dune area off of Behind the Rocks RD, and meander through mainly sandy/dirt 2 track that is relatively smooth, with some areas of sandstone as well. When you are nearing the end, there is more sandstone, and a couple of overlooks to stop and enjoy. Deep in the bottom of the canyon, you will be able to see Kane Creek, and the trail running through it. It's a short out-and-back trail that can be coupled with some fun in the sand dune, picture frame arch, or Behind the Rocks trail.

I would consider this a blue trail, I rated it a 5, there are some ledges the last 1/3 of a mile that require high clearance and a skilled driver. A spotter would be nice!

Very cool trail but I wouldn't call it a 3/10. I rated it a 4/10 overall, maybe a 3/10 for 90% of the trail but at the very end there are a series of good-sized ledges in a row in a narrow section with large rocks to avoid, I was able to do it but not without hitting my rear hitch a few times. Caught a couple of our group members off guard and caused a small amount of drama.
