These routes lead to a walk through tunnel. The roads are good for any four wheel drive vehicle. Blue Hills road (route 2) is better for all wheel drive vehicles and mountain bikes since there is less sand. These routes are traveled pretty heavily by OHV users. If you bring dogs, you will want to keep them leashed.

Fun trail. Tunnel is neat. Nice views from other side of tunnel. We did a loop trail, seeing Determination Towers, M&M and the tunnel. Saw prong horned antelope on the way back to parking.

Good trail. Part of it was closed, but we were able to go around. Almost got stuck in the sand a couple times in our stock Jeep, but didn’t. Was fun. Would do again.

Wow! Tusher Tunnel is one of the coolest natural features I've ever been to. The "hike" is like 2min until you hit the entrance but it's really cool as well, looks like a couple more tunnels are forming next door. I started into the triangular tunnel and after 20sec was thinking "I thought this was a tunnel?" Eventually the light at the end peered through around the corner and I was blown away. It's surprisingly long and is smallest in the center growing as you move outwards in either direction. The offroad is a different kind of fun with mostly high speed smooth sections and almost no obstacles but fantastic views the whole time. With close proximity to 191 (and the airport hence no drone) this is quickie you should consider. Have fun out there and if you'd like to see my video from the run check it out below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQCa3-SmEy4

Parts of the trail were quite sandy but we made it. Never found the tunnel, we did find the dead end sign referenced in another comment, we drove down that part of the trail for a while then went on foot. My expert hiker brother went ahead and saw what he believed was the tunnel but said it wasn’t passable for my 5 year olds. This part wasn’t exactly kid friendly.

Easy trail. Some sand at the end, but nothing major. Tunnel and views are worth the drive.

Short little trail with fun tunnels, fun off roading for the right vehicles and a pot of gold at the end of the trail ;)

Got to this via the Monitor and Merrimack ATV trails. A short walk through the tunnel to a cool view and a pictograph. Worth the time.

The base map is off for this trail. It shows starting from the Book Cliffs which is not correct. It can be started from Mill Canyon Road or Blue Hills Road.

North of Moab, and west of Hwy 191. An easy and short trail that you can do in less than an hour.
