So pretty and picturesque. A little scary getting down but manageable in a pair of good hiking boots. Camping spots all around. Great weather right now, warm in the day and cool at night.

Scary as can be in spots! Beautiful all the way thru!

Awesome and beautiful trail that gets more intense over the last five miles. Took two stock Rzrs all the way through with quite a bit of rock stacking and technical driving from Hamburger Hill on. Would not recommend this in a stock Rzr unless you have a lot of experience rock crawling. If you just want to play in the creek make sure you have enough time to turn around and go out the way you came in as that part was the most fun in a Rzr.

Sooo... two girls having fun, roaming the beautiful canyons stumbled upon this trail unsuspectedly. It is f****** hard. It's got everything you might want in a trail; mud, water, it's scenic and it's got that hamburger challenge that will get your heart pumping, plus a few fun and hard obstacles on the way. When you think it's done, it's not. Also, be prepared to beat up your vehicle physically. But isn't that what it's all about?! I do not recommend anyone going alone. 3.5" with 35s.

It was a great trail with lots of great views. Hamburger hill was no joke.

Fun trail, mostly easy road until the climb out. Neat to travel through an entire canyon from one end of Moab to the other.

Recently I ran this trail during the Easter Jeep Safari in my Toyota FJ Cruiser (very modified). It was definitely not for the faint of heart. Not a beginners trail and not one I would recommend going on my yourself even if your rig is pretty modified (at least not by yourself the first time). The most major obstacle is a spot Hamburger Hill, a tough rock garden that requires careful wheel placement. Expect scraping on rock sliders and skid plates and even bumpers. And be willing to take body damage as there are outcropping rocks at some points that could cause side damage to your vehicle.

Easy drive on a dirt road. Nothing really exciting until you get to the arch. If you're brave enough and strong enough you can climb a crack in the lower rocks to get up inside the bowl that the arch covers.

Another great trail. Many water crossings. Never crowded, at least our experience, Enough obstacles to have fun.
Just like most of Moab, unreal scenery!!

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.

Taylor Canyon is a spur trail off the long White Rim Trail. To get to the trail head from Moab, you must take Rt 313 to a a dirt trail called Mineral Botton Road (Horse Thief Trail) travel 13 miles down this road to the switchbacks that lead you down 800' to the White Rim Trail. Hang a left and travel another 6 miles to the trailhead of Taylor Canyon. Now, its 5 more miles up canyon to the Spires of Zeus and Moses. I made this trip with my sons Ron and Bob on a beautiful June day. We wanted to explore the spires. Boy, was it hot that day. We spent a few hours exploring this scenic canyon before heading back to Moab. What a great day of hiking, Jeeping and fun with my boys.
