Great National Park.

My first moderate trial in my Jeep Renegade Trailhawk all stock. Driving from south to north was beautiful but barely required the 4x4. The carved out sandy roads were a breeze and as it changed to bumpy rocks we were slowed down a bit but there was a stretch of extremely sharp rocks and sheer cliffs I did not feel comfortable attempting. I watched a Rubicon struggle and scrape the heck out of their under carriage so I promptly turned around only to scrape mine in doing so. My moderate ground clearance did not seem to be enough to tackle this last bit before the 62. Otherwise the drive before and back was very serene.

Super fun a little scary with a stock 4 runner 5th gen. Absolutely a bucketlist activity.

Loved it!

I did this trail counter clockwise starting at 7am. It was fairly easy to navigate. The steep incline the last 1.5 miles was a great workout. The scrambling (since I did counter clockwise) was all downhill. As I’m very comfortable it was not difficult or scary but a. It jarring on the knees for those with injuries.

The signage for the trail is pretty threatening, while I get it, I think they could back off a tiny bit.

All in all, I’d do this hike again but only early as it got hot by 10:30 when I finished .

FANTASTIC drive. Im a solo female in my 2014 JK--a novice off road--and i did just fine, but I was concentrating deeply to make sure my tires werent sliced up on the rocks. Also, you have to mind the curves, not just the terrain. It takes about a 2.5 hours in total if you take your time and enjoy it. At an hour in, you begin switchbacking down and up multi-colored, jagged cliffs. This alone is worth the drive from pavement over uneven, rocky desert. Watch for Black-tailed Jackrabbits. The canyon itself is more dramatic than I'd expected and there are plenty of areas where you're the only thing fitting through. This was my 6th time to DV and I'm so thankful i was finally A) in the right kind of vehicle and B) there when it was open!

A nice trail I would rate it as easy, very picturesque worth the drive.

it was a fun trip did it in my super duty so if i can do it you can too

Whether you’re biking the road in May, driving it in the crowds of July, or enjoying the quiet after 10pm, this road is unbelievable.

This is one of my new favorites! I made it with a stock Chevy K1500 and 32" tires. The rocks are sharp so I'd suggest making sure you have good tires, but ground clearance requirements aren't too bad. I didn't find the last switchback to be anything overly difficult either, but I have a regular cab short bed. I might think differently if trying it with a longer wheelbase, though I suspect it's still manageable.

We did this road from the national Park entry, the first part is really sandy. You definitely need to lower the tires pressure and have wide wheels as well as permanent 4x4 with lower gears and equipment to get your truck out of the sand in case.
After the sand, around 10 miles in, the road start narrowing and climbs, a “normal” 4x4 won’t probably make it and there really fewer turning points to turn around.
You need to drive through a lot of sharp rocks on the street, deep cuts and pretty intense obstacles to overcome driving up the mountain (better with differential blocks) .
Your tire pressure at this point need to be lowered or you won’t probably make it and be prepared to pop a tire and mount a spare tire on your way.
You won’t have network, and there are many minor side ways that can get you lost if you got stuck there and be prepared to walk in hard conditions, consider at least 1 gallon of water in case things go wrong, power battery for the map on the phone, and a knife for possible bobcats who might chase you (suggestion if you break down is to walk at sunset-night for avoiding the heat), flashlight and analog compass.
We popped the rear tire and we forgot the jack for the spare, a mistake that could have driven to a miserable death if we were not lucky enough to have water, equipment and know how to hike in the desert.
We walked 17 miles to get out on the 62 and get network, took us 6 hours hiking in with others two people we rescued on the street who got stuck in the sand, it was not possible to tow them out as their little suv 2wd was heavily stuck.

Here are our specs:
-Land Rover Range Rover 4.0 P38, 3 inch lift , 265/65 , wrangler duratrac tires

Here are our suggestions:
-don’t do this road if you are not experienced with desert, rocks and driving up in narrow, steep mountain off road tracks.
-be prepared with spare wheel and gear yourself up
-be prepared if your transmission break down or you hit a rock with and your wheel nut is gone
-have good breaks and low gears up/down, lockers preferred but not necessary if you know what you are doing
-this road is definitely not moderate, some passages who are hard and require rock crawling experience
-drive slowly on the rocks

A part of this is a fun road, good views and pretty scenic different grounds.

Did this after doing the fins and had a great time...

We took the trail going through the Hurrah pass trailing the very edge of the clifs and it was wonderful. the top has breathtaking views and the trail isn't too difficult to the top. Going down on the other side to get to the Chicken Trail is a tad bit more difficult but still not too bad.

I hiked only portions of this, rather than the entire trail because I was deviating to other trails on the same trip. The miles of this trail I hiked had me pass Emerald Pools, which was lovely. I also thought the view was incredible once you pass Emerald Pools, where I was looking down, through the valley.

Thelma and Louise was filmed here!

Definitely need an off roaring vehicle! Or something at least with high clearance. Once you start there’s no turning around.
One of my favourite places to date. Lots of wildlife and places to stop and do small hikes around. The old town is super cool too. Some people drive though it quickly, but honestly take your time and soak everything in. It’s gorgeous

Did it November 2016 in an '04 4runner. Completely stock except for the 2" lift and Icon suspension. 2nd trail I had ever done. Terrifying! So many chances to roll and destroy your rig and yourself. I did celebratory donuts when we made it out in one piece. I learned a lot that day.

Breath taking place. So many beautiful sights

SO BEAUTIFUL! Pictures doesn’t serve the scenery justice.

Great trail. Be careful on the last hairpin switchback. I nosed in, reversed down the trail 150 feet or so to the next switchback which left me pointing forward again and did not require making a somewhat gnarly 3 point turn. Otherwise, the trail is pretty spectacular. I was in a stock 4x4 2018 tacoma and made it no problem. Did scrape my side predator side steps a couple times, but no big deal.

We forgot to record the entire drive, but we started at the toll booths in Springdale and went all the way to the eastern edge of the park (one way). One worry I had was would our Volvo with bikes mounted on top be OK to go through the tunnels, and they were. Do keep in mind that the tunnels have a height restriction and bigger vehicles like buses or RVs may need an escort. The escort may cost extra, but otherwise there are no additional charges to go through the tunnel (without escorts). We did not do any hiking, but did stop at a few viewpoints to soak in the scenery, so we were in the park about 3 hours. It was a beautiful day and not too many people. As it had rained earlier in the week (with flash floods and rock slides), we think many may have avoided the park today (July 14). But as all of the roads were open, we had a pleasant drive through. Hope to come back again for some hikes!

Very rewarding hike but try to avoid going on the switchbacks when going counter clock wise during the middle of the day during summer. Sun saps the energy out of you.

One of my all time favourite drives next to Icefields Parkway in Banff. Good memories here with my boyfriend. I'll forever cherish this drive.

Did this trail today and had a great time. My quad struggled in the cold air/elevation but still made it. Rocks are sharp but my 4 ply tires held up well. You have to take this trail slow but it was worth it to get to the end. Stock 4x4 will be a close call while anything lifted will do fine. Quads and dirt bikes can handle this.
