Moab Rim Trail

Description:

The Moab Rim Trail is a very tough and popular Jeep trail that is also adored by hikers. The trail follows the Jeep trail up to a panoramic view of the Moab Valley, Arches National Park and the usually snowcapped LaSal Mountains. It can be turned into a loop with the nearby Hidden Valley Trail. From the parking area, follow the 4-wheel-drive vehicle route up the slickrock ramps of Kayenta sandstone. After about 1.4 miles, the route reaches a viewpoint of the Moab Valley. Follow the vehicle route south and then down through a slickrock area located between two large domes of Navajo sandstone. At the base of the slickrock area, the route continues along a wash bottom and then up a large sand hill. From the top of the sand hill, the route branches twice to the left. The first spur on the left leads to a view point high above Spanish Valley. The second spur route ends after 200 yards at another view point. Ahead to the south, the view is dominated by a long ridge of massive sandstone fins. From the intersection, the main route drops down into a wash and then climbs in an easterly direction to its terminus just below the pass to Hidden Valley. There is no fee for hiking the Moab Rim Trail, however please leave the place nicer than when you arrived by picking up any little you may find and by staying precisely on the trail provided. This trail sees a lot of use and needs some help from you to stay nice! Thank you! Note: The Moab Rim route is a shared use trail. You may encounter jeeps, mountain bikes, dirt bikes or ATV's on the route.

Directions:

On Kane Creek Boulevard, 2.6 miles northwest of its intersection with U.S. Highway 191 in Moab (.1 mile beyond the first cattleguard).

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
