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.

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.
