Wonders of the Red Rock, Utah

The best 4-Wheeling in the World!! There is something for everyone easy to impossible. 5-1 Day trips. Rated from 2 to 3 ½


All five of the day trips start from the town of Moab ,UT. Located next to the Colorado River, on highway 191. The trips will all leave from the "City Market" parking lot. We will have a 8:30 departure each day. This location is central and it gives you a chance to grab anything you may have forgot. You can campout or stay in a motel it is up to you.

The trails will be;

Chicken Corners - with very scenic Colorado River views and the wind caves. You cam get some of the most unique scenery you will ever see along here. Rated 2.

Poison Spider Mesa - the Navajo Sandstone is exciting to drive on, this is a area of petrified sand dunes. We will climb to 1,000 ft. above Moab and can hike to Little Arch and get a view of Jeep Arch in the distance. Rated 4 .

Hey Joe - This is a scenic route to the Green River. We have a very spectacular Dug-Way to traverse in and out of Spring Canyon on the way to Hey Joe Mine. Once we reach the river it is very tight as we have to cross some rock falls. Once we are at the mine we must return the same way we came in. Rated 3 ½ .

Metal Masher - The trail goes through Little Canyon and up to Arth’s Rim, the highest point around with 360 degree views to the La Sal’s, Arches N.P. and into Canyon Lands N.P. Rated a 4 because of one hill we can bypass that keeping the rating down to a 3 ½ .

Gold Bar Rim - we will be able to drive across a double arch over 300 ft. above Bull Canyon. Climb some ledges to some fantastic views. We will travel Long Canyon and come out by some Indian Writings. Rated as a 3 ½

This is one place that I know that you will want to return to for more exploring in the future. The town has many motels, campgrounds, and fine eating establishments, as well as fast food places. There are many other things to see and do while you are in the area, Mt. Biking, River Running, Arches N.P., Canyon Lands N.P. or the standard Shopping.

This is my favorite place. You will surely feel the same after just one visit. You will need to bring your cameras and plenty of film for this adventure. The trails all be passable with most 4-Wheel Drives, only full-sized vehicles on Metal Masher could have a challenge. If we have a number of them on the trip we can use the Seven Mile Rim trail instead of Metal Masher. You will need to bring a Lunch, Snacks and Drinks each day as the adventures will last all day.

Special Equipment: C.B. Radio, Tow Strap, Air Compressor, Cameras and film.

This is our planned itinerary and is subject to change do to; Weather or any unforeseen conditions. Western Adventures hopes this will be one adventure you will always cherish. I hope to see you soon on an unforgettable adventure real soon.

Thank you,
