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!
