As a relatively new driver on off-roads, I would say the moderate rating is fair. Lots of varied terrain and obstacles, with stunning views. It took a while, maybe 4-5 hours, in my 2020 Jeep Wrangler Willys (mud tires + a little extra lift than the Sport). I never scraped and the Jeep did great, but certain parts were definitely, “Uh, not sure about this.” But in a fun way!

You’ll be on a heavily trafficked trail system for a while, but when you finally break off to Chicken Corners it gets a bit more spread out, the views are awesome and the terrain is nothing to stress about. Slow and steady!

Great views and although not too difficult, you do have to stay alert as there are blind corners and traffic coming the other way once you get through the first 5 miles or so. Oh, and you are basically 8-10 feet from a steep cliff for a good portion of the trip down and then back up. Some of the turns do have some rock steps. Not large, but depending on your vehicle you could scrape a little. They add just a little anxiety to the blind turn, but again, they are not awful. Going back before I leave to get some additional pictures and video. It is very scenic.

We did this in a jeep and the views were unreal. We did not dare to do the very last part of it as it was icy and looked way too scary. It was our first time jeeping and it was not bad at all. May require someone to spot you in a couple of places where jeep might hit ground if you are not careful. I took one star off because it does take a long time and you have to back track the whole way to get out which seems to take forever. But Schafer was closed so that was not an option.

Awesome trail for the new guys to Moab, we rode a Ranger crew with four adults and a child and two four wheelers. Awesome views and lots of picture locations. This is a great family trail!

This is a great ride out to the Dead Horse area. Spectacular views. Consider the trail to be easy for a RZR 1000. No obstacles or challenging spots. Take a lunch and enjoy the views at trails end.

This was an amazing experience. We went 4x4 in a RZR-S 900. To do the entire trail give yourself plenty of time, as it’s quite long. We got to the trail head at 930am. Made it back after many stops with lunch and exploration at 330pm. End of February so it was around 34 degrees. Luckily there were no clouds or wind. We had to bundle up, with multiple layers. Also at this time of the year ski goggles made it very enjoyable. Thick gloves and ski masks also needed as the wind chill while off roading can bite right through you. We saw only one other vehicle the entire time we were there. While it was cold, we were fairly comfortable with our layers and gear. Highly recommend doing this just for how few people are out at that time of the year. There were some parts going down Hurrah pass that were covered in snow but the trail is well marked and wide during that descent. The actual chicken corners was more narrow and was a little on edge if you’re not used to driving in steep cliffs. But it’s short and again the trail is well maintained and wide enough. When we started going back to the trail head the snow had melted so it was very muddy so some slippage was apparent.

Great 42-mile out and back trail in Polaris Ranger Crew 570-4. No problems minus a couple bottom scrapes here and there ... nothing major. Rainy most of the day, but cleared up when we got to the end. Well worth the haul all the way, ending across the Colorado River from Thelma and Louise Point.

Took this drive with my wife on 9/29/2018. This is a phenomenal drive. Low clearance vehicles should not attempt this. There were a couple places that would high-center a Subaru. Make sure you have ample clearance, water (it was 90 degrees), food and time. If you’re not camping start early. I would set aside at least 5 hrs for a scenic drive/pics. There were som places that were washed out and should not be attempted if you’re a newbie. A tow from the far end can easily run $1,000. Not a typo. Worth every minute. If you’re scared of heights don’t look down. Moab was booked solid but out here after Hurrah Pass you’ll be pretty alone except for an occasional side-by-side. No service. No water. No shade. Plenty memories.

Trail was very crowded around 2 pm in the afternoon. Starting out trail is very well marked and you know which way to go. Once you get to the bottom of the canyon there is not much signage and multiple off shoot trails which can be confusing. Most of these trails are for ATV/UTV. We had a 16 Jeep with 6 inch lift and 35 inch tires. Seen multiple people doing this in stock 4x4s and I wouldn’t see that being a issue.

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.
