Long but amazing ride bring extra water

I completely screwed this up today, thinking I was going to Mount Peale, and then, after getting up on the ridge, not realizing that I was just below Mount Tukuhnikivatz. The final ascent to the peak looked dicey to me, but now I realize that it is probably not that bad, so I will have to go back some time. If I had spent 30 seconds looking at the information posted at the trailhead, I would have known where I was going. Even on the ridge where the trail ends before you have to make your own way to the summit, the views are absolutely spectacular. You can see forever. The La Sal mountains are majestic and the surrounding landscape is beautiful. Don't underestimate the impact of hiking at above 10000 feet. The switchbacks are not that steep, but I still had to keep stopping to catch my breath.

Beautiful lake. Lots of snow this past winter and lake still has water flowing into it. Completely worth it

Great trail! It’s hard to find the switchbacks on the shale field when there is snow. I highly recommend this hike!

Awesome views, great ride. Some parts I had to walk down but the rest was a nice challenge. I would definitely recommend this trail. This is the first start point if you don't want to do the 700' incline over the burro pass at the start of the Whole Enchilada trail. You can also drop in off of the La Sal loop road which is where I started this trail. From La Sal loop road it was 18 miles and a 4300 foot drop to get to grandstaff campground on the Colorado river. With multiple stops and many picture taking moments it took me 5 hours. Someone that is actually in shape and a good rider could cut this time in half.

Steep Sections but an all-around beautiful hike. The lakes are currently full! Forest road 0076 is washed out so the hike is 9miles round trip from the intersection with The La Sal Loop Road.

Couldn't start all the way up. Dropped at the Kokopeli (sp?) trail pull off? Definitely worth riding. Speed is the difference between better and newer riders here. Speed will definitely reward you, slow will potentially save you? I rode a long travel (SB 150) and it ate everything on this trail, but the climbing wasn't exactly the easiest. Lovely time.

A very extreme ski mountaineering mountain. I always have a great time skiing this Peak. My favorite is skiing the sub peak of Little Tuk. Best Time to go is may.

It is a fun off-road driving and a nice view at the top. With 4x4 and big wheels it would be no big deal. With a regular 4x4 would be a little bit of difficulty on the rough rock sections. 4x4 and high clearance would be sufficient. Non 4x4 SUV does not need to make this drive (Outback for example). The road is very narrow and you may have to drive on the sands to make room for another car driving at the opposite direction. No kidding. The last 3 miles are nothing but driving on the rocks and some sections are technical.

Beautiful hike. Best part is once you reach the ridge line and the trail goes away. You are exposed all the way to the summit afterwards. If you are driving to the trailhead in a non 4wd vehicle, take the forest road (0073) which approaches the pass from the east side of the mountain. There is no water once you get on the trail, but there are some small springs and streams which cross the forest road leading to the trailhead. Enjoy and take it easy and stay hydrated if you aren’t used to the elevation.

Amazing views the entire way but if you get to the end, a real treat. Seeing the river so far below is hard to describe. We got there just after sunset so the colours were vivid. Drove it in a stock Cherokee Trailhawk with no problems. A couple of bumps to the underside but no big deal. The last kilometre gets pretty rocky. Vehicles with more clearance and larger tires will laugh at this. A great little trip.

Gorgeous hike, only a little snow up top. Fairly steep at parts, but worth the hike! :)

We made this drive three times, twice in an Arctic Cat Wildcat and once in a Hummer H2. The road is well maintained and was easily completed in these vehicles. We made this journey in July when the weather was hot in Moab (103 degrees Fahrenheit). This was a great way to cool off, although during that same day, it snowed on us in the La Sal Mountains. What a blast this trip was!

This is mainly a 4 wheel drive trail. We were the only mountain bikers on the trail. Saw maybe 4-6 jeeps on the whole ride. It is pretty steep near the trail head with some technical rocky parts. The rest of the trail was fun. We ran into a lot of sand when we went which slowed us down. Way worth the view at the overlook however. Make sure to start at elephant hill and turn right at forks on the way out.

A sandy/rocky trail that starts at the visitor center Needles district of Canyonlands NP. The last couple of miles are pretty rough, but you can hike that part. Views of the Colorado River.

Geyser Pass is accesed via the La Sal Loop Road, about 12 miles from Moab. We have Jeeped the pass either as a stop when we climbed Mt Mellenthin, or when Jeeping a loop onto Dark Canyon Trail to La Sal Pass Trail back to town. The trip to Geyser Pass is easy, except once it was still blocked by snow in early June on one of our many trips to Moab.
