    Hayden Cook reviewed Kane Creek Canyon

    about 2 years ago

    Recently I ran this trail during the Easter Jeep Safari in my Toyota FJ Cruiser (very modified). It was definitely not for the faint of heart. Not a beginners trail and not one I would recommend going on my yourself even if your rig is pretty modified (at least not by yourself the first time). The most major obstacle is a spot Hamburger Hill, a tough rock garden that requires careful wheel placement. Expect scraping on rock sliders and skid plates and even bumpers. And be willing to take body damage as there are outcropping rocks at some points that could cause side damage to your vehicle.

    Went off-roading up towards Kennebec Pass to this spot at the top of the trail known as The Notch. Simple drive when in a higher clearance vehicle. Four wheel drive may be needed but isn't required,especially with dry conditions. Beautiful high elevation sights to see from the notch. You get above the tree line for sure and there are hiking trails nearby.

    Gone on this trail twice as part of the Alpine Loop trail which also includes Engineer Pass. It is not very difficult at all but as with all the trails in the area, the views are gorgeous and it is well worth the while!

    Very beautiful trail, not that challenging at all but this is a good one to do along with Cinnamon Pass as part of the "Alpine Loop". Any stock 4x4 vehicle can do this if they have decent ground clearance. Make sure to go to the "Oh Point" near the pass of the mountain, it is breathtaking. Literally, you are above 13,000 feet, there is no air lol.

    I off-roaded on this trial this summer and it was awesome! It does take a while to get to from Moab since you must travel all the way to Canyonlands National Park but it was worth it. Very nice and technical trail where 4 wheel drive is a must, and having high ground clearance will help.

    There are some parts of the trail where you HAVE to drive backwards because the switchbacks are to narrow but it is easy. And there are also some narrow sections, and I mean NARROW! You have to actually pull in your mirrors or else you risk scraping those on the rocks! So just make sure you have a spotter or are very careful!

    Very fun trail! If you have little to no off-road experience, this is a great trail to break yourself in, and even for off-road junkies like me who have done way harder trails, it is still a favorite! I've done it 3 or 4 times now and I really enjoy it, some of the sandstone drops and climbs exceed 30 degrees which makes it feel like you're going straight up or straight down but it is so fun! Being lifted and having lockers is a good idea and as always, going with a group in case of trouble is always recommended!

    Awesome trail! Can't wait to do it again! but only attempt this trail if you have experience off-roading and I would advise going with a group or at least with others to help you. Being lifted and having lockers will help, but I was with a guy in a stock jeep wrangler that was able to make it so it can be done. This trail can be driven in a loop and then you come back out the way you came or you can continue on through Golden Spike and then Gold Bar Rim. I drove the loop in my lifted FJ Cruiser and it was a blast!

    Hayden Cook reviewed Hell's Revenge and Potato Salad Hill

    almost 5 years ago

    Awesome awesome awesome trail!! Hell's Revenge is one of the most famous and popular trail for off-roading in Moab, UT and if you have a suitable 4x4 vehicle, I definitely recommend it! There are obstacles on the trail that are optional and can be by-passed such as Hell's Gate, Escalator and Tip-Over Challenge but even not doing those difficult/dangerous parts still makes this trail super fun. I've done it now twice in my modified FJ Cruiser and it is such a rush diving on that sand stone and getting to go over 30 degrees up and down and even drive through some of the hot tubs!

    Potato Salad Hill is a nearby obstacle to the trail that many people ion their extremely modified rock buggies will do and tipping and rolling on this obstacle are very common occurrences! Do not attempt without extreme confidence in what you are doing or without a spotter if you aren't sure.

    Its nice driving around the park but there isn't a whole lot to see from the car, what really makes the park worth while are the guided and self-guided tours!

    Very cool ghost town and getting there from Silverton is very easy. All it is is a dirt road, you could get there in 2WD easy. Definitely check it out.

    The Poughkeepsie Gulch trail is a great, fun, and challenging trail that should only be attempted by those who how have pretty build vehicle capable of handling very tough conditions. The one obstacle which makes this trail so well known is "The Wall" which will require excellent articulation, at minimum a rear locker,and of course, low 4-wheel drive and high ground clearance. If you start this trail from Highway 550, you will actually be starting on the Mineral Creek trail which is rated as a difficult trail because it does have some narrow roads where passing is impossible and there are some rocky obstacles but a stock 4x4 SUV with high ground clearance can do this. You will eventually reach the sign where you take a left to go to Poughkeepsie Gulch and after a while you will reach a nice long climb on loose rock where 4 wheel drive and momentum is important. Soon after this though there will be one small rock obstacle which can be avoided but then you reach "The Wall". The Wall has multiple places where one can go up and I personally was able to get up without the use of a winch but there are a few winching points at the top for getting up since it is challenging. Damage is pretty common here and having rock sliders or skid plates will probably help. A spotter will also help a lot and going on this trail with others is also a smart idea. After the wall, there are more rock obstacles but none as intense as the wall, and once you reach Lake Como, that is the end of the trail!

    Hayden Cook reviewed Corkscrew Gulch

    almost 5 years ago

    I've driven this trail multiple times and it is very easy and can be done in any high clearance 4x4 SUV, however, what can really make this trail easy or hard is the weather! In July of 2013, I was able to do it twice in 2 days and I got to see this trail at it's absolute worst! One day, I was running the Alpine Loop and after traveling on Engineer Pass to Lake City from Ouray and coming back across on Cinnamon Pass, I reached Animas Forks and had the choice of either coming across California Pass and Corkscrew Gulch to get to the Million Dollar Highway or I could go down the road to Silverton and then drive back to Ouray. But since it was late in the day, my buddy and I decided it would be shorter to cut across the mountains to get back. As we started back onto the trails and onto the mountain passes, the weather started to turn on us like it had been doing almost every evening, but because the trails are mostly composed of rock, I never felt in danger of slipping and I never lost traction, even when it was pouring cats and dogs and even when it started hailing.

    But as we started down the switchbacks on Corkscrew, the weather started clearing up a little, and just when my buddy and I had though we had gotten out of the worst of it, we met our first mud slide. On the Corkscrew trail, something you must understand is that if it starts raining, you better get out of there, because that whole canyon is an active mud slide area. If it hadn't have been for my mud terrain tires or my high clearance from my lift kit and my lockers, I'm not sure we would have made it. We ended up having to drive through about 6 thick, deep, and dangerous mud slides that had occurred. With some of them, as you would drive though, you could feel yourself sinking in and sliding off the road but you just had to keep on the gas and hope you got through!

    So just know that this trail is a breeze when it's dry, but if it has been storming or is wet, I'd stay away!
