Getting out to Chimney Rock itself is relatively easy if you’re used to off-road driving. But the rock isn’t the end of the line. There is a lot of trail left to travel after you pass that point. You can pick some fun lines or take bypasses. You encounter some light rock crawling, sand washes, a little moab-like area, hill climbs, and if your lucky you’ll stumble across a great little water hole. It’s an oasis, tucked away from those unfamiliar with the area. Lots of pinstripes to be earned on this trail!

Riding on the UTV out to Chimney Rock is always a great experience for our family. Not sure if I agree with the hard trail rating. I think it's more of a moderate trail if you drive around the mud holes and go whenever the weather has been dry for a period. We usually never run into many people on this trip, so, be sure that you are prepared. Cellphone service is spotty to non-existent.

Fun, Moab style Wheeling. Plenty of slick rock.
Nice scenic ranch road leading to the site. Please shut gates behind you, watch for ranch horses and dogs.
And as one of the signs on the ranch road says. "Drive like an Idiot, Get treated like an Idiot."
