Scenic drivingGreat!

We were interested in checking this place out for future off road adventures, we had a rental van this time around. It was $5 for the day which is a decent price. Saw lots of people biking, atving, jeeping, and even walking along some of the paths! We will be coming back to enjoy entire experience!

Did this trail at the beginning of January and it was doable in the snow. Took my awd and didn’t have any problems. Loved the lookout point towards the out to see Castle Valley.

Drove this New Year’s Eve in a rental with awd. I had to get a shot of castle valley. The conditions were nerve racking with snow and ice and almost didn’t make. It. Consequences were severe with an angry girlfriend and no cell service. No snow and a 2wd could make it.

We were looking for some easy off road with our Jeep and this was too easy. Basically a fire road.

First to Review

Sand Flats Road is an access road in Moab. The well graded trail goes to the Sand Flats Recreationn Area which has a toll booth, as well as campgrounds, famous bike or Jeep trails. We used it as a short cut to get to the La Sal Mountain Road. We were Jeeping to Geyser Pass. The trail was easy and had little traffic.
