Triangle Road is an interesting and scenic part of the overland route from Grand Junction to Moab. The easy 24-mile track has relatively simple dirt roads with small rock shelf sections. The trail's most exciting part is the Delores River crossing. Normally two to three feet deep, the Delores can rise to five feet or more during the Spring runoff. Just be sure to scout the crossing. Swinging in an arc seemed to be an easier crossing than straight through. When scouting the crosses, look for the sand bars, as the water will be shallowest there. While the rest of the trail can be done easily by a 2WD vehicle, the river crossing is a significant challenge and requires a high clearance vehicle. Once past the river, the trail ends at an intersection with Entrada Bluffs Road, which can be taken west to Highway 128 and Dewey Bridge.

The trail offers plenty of camping for overland vehicles and tent campers if you choose to go light. There are several designated campsites between Entrada Bluffs and the river crossing.
