OHV/Off Road Driving

The most aggressive portion of the trail is the first mile or two headed up from the gravel road (north part). Everything after tower Arch Is mild in comparison. I have a 6” lift and great clearance but I saw a stock non lift Jeep make it up.

Did this trail with a f250 diesel. 6” lift and 37” mud tires and it did great. Fun trail with the kids in the back. A few technical spots where if you know what you are doing isn’t bad at all but you could easily bottom out if you don’t know what your doing or don’t have the clearance.

Awesome trail!! We started at Salt Valley Road and took it down in the park. Not much to see here except the prairie dogs darting across the road. Once we got into the park, it was fantastic! We did this 4WD technical trail in a stock Jeep JLX with 33” mudders. Definitely challenging for my first time out here, but it was a blast. Highly recommend!!

7/2/2020 fairly difficult run up to tower arch. lots of rocky switch backs. Great view of tower arch. short walk down to aye arch. doesn't take long to get there. The run to Eye of the whale longer and not difficult. You get to a large rock that looks kinda like a whale.

Nothing hard, literally just the back road into Arches. You can turn off to the left about a mile from the end of the trail for a technical off road trail.

Did this in a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sport with 2 inch lift after supper in late June as the sun was moving into golden hour. It was gorgeous watching the rocks of Arches as we drove toward the park. It starts off easy, then gets onto some slick rock for a fun ride. Stop along the way to see the dino tracks. This was our first ever Jeep trail. I drove it with two tweens along for the ride. We were grinning ear to ear the whole way in and at the end. Stay to watch the sunset in Arches, then head down the main road.

A short stop off a 4x4 road, or about a 5.5mi walk along a dirt road from the last bathroom facilities opposite balancing rock. Only saw 2 other groups out here, definitely worth exploring.. but be mindful of the full sun exposure and temperatures if you choose to walk/hike.

Is anyone able to tell me if this is open for dispersed camping?

Lots of fun! Definitely want high clearance for this. We started at the turnoff by Balanced Rock, went to Tower Arch and then back over to the main road by Devils Garden. There’s one spot that’s “questionable” going from Eye of the Whale Arch to Tower Arch. Tower Arch is well worth it! Driving back from Tower Arch to Salt Valley Road is by far the hardest part of the drive. There’s a ramp that you need to navigate that we managed to do in a GMC Sierra, a Jeep would have no problems but it’s definitely rocky!

I did the entire trip from arches all the way until the 70. It was muddy and very slippery. Not gonna lie there were times that I thought I might get stuck. I have a Jeep Wrangler 4x4.

Just a two track road. You could drive the entire way. We hiked and it was a good walk but lots of people drove a4x4 and were fine. The arch is fun to scramble around and have lunch.

I took this trail from the Tower Arch trail which is harder than this one. This trail is pretty easy with no crazy tire lifters and over half of it is smooth sand. The feature itself is very cool and definitely worth checking out if you're in the area. As always there is some conflicting info in the reviews with some saying they did fine and some having a hard time. That is the exact point of my channel and this video, if you'd like to see every obstacle on the trail and decide for yourself check it out below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVxCyKMQ3CY

Took a 2019 Cherokee Trailhawk and it handled it with zero issues. I did the whole loop into the park and it was great. Make sure you have enough gas!

Completed with stock Subaru Crosstrek. November 2018. Really great beginners off road trail. A few places will require some clever approaches if you don’t have a lift. But we made it through with no scrapes. A few modified Jeeps were surprised to see a little Crosstrek on the trail. Don’t miss the dinosaur tracks pull off about halfway through. Easily the coolest thing to see on the trail.

Hardcore off-road sections with steep rock climbs. Large ground clearance needed

I’d recommend 4x4; we disconnected sway bar & aired down our wrangler. Parking available at trail head to hike the rest of the way in. Steep Slickrock down the other side; recommend trail treads on your shoes
