Cruise up and down incredibly steep, giant slickrock fins The dominant feature of this trail is its steepness and great traction on the slickrock. Unbelievable fun and fantastic scenery. Best part is between Points 9 and 13. Small fee required to enter. Fee includes map with rules and regulations. Read and follow rules carefully. For information on this trail, contact the Sand Flats Recreation Area at (435) 259-2444. Steep slickrock climbs and descents. Some large ledges have bypasses, but not all. Short vehicles with high approach and departure angles do best, but many stock SUVs are seen on this trail. I'm sure their bumpers drag. The south loop is not recommended for ATVs.

Incredible views and challenging enough to keep the driver on his toes but still easy enough in parts for rookie drivers to take the wheel for a while. Amazing scenery on virtually the entire trail.

This trail is NOT for those who have trouble with looking down on both sides of the Jeep at a drop off while you drive atop a very narrow rock fin.

If you can handle that, you will love this trail as if feels like riding a roller coaster without all the safety devices to keep you from getting hurt.

Have Fun!

Love the roller coaster feeling on this trail. One section is only drivable in the day. Worth not skipping this part although you do drive through some campsites so use caution.

So much fun, I was only able to complete the first portion of the loop due to weather. If your new to wheeling, I recommend taking someone with you to spot you down off some of the steeper drops. We have a rubicon 4dr 4" lift on 35" tires and I didn't need the lockers or air down, but I did smack my tow hook on the ground so if you have one take it out if you don't want to mess it up. It's a lot of fun and a good solid challenge.

So much fun. It's a great trail for your first real off-road adventure with obstacles. Easy to follow. There are tire marks on the slick rock and well as painted stegosauri so you can get lost. I have done this trail in a Jeep, Polaris RZR, and on my dirtbike.
