Hero: Trin Alcove West
small-sr Icon

With breathtaking views, free camping, and easy access, Trin Alcove West is a one-stop shop for a San Rafael Desert base camp location. The trail leads out to the mirrored bend of Trin Alcove East, an almost 360-degree bend within the Green Rivers Labyrinth Canyon Wilderness. The trail is easy enough for 2WD with high clearance and durable tires, but not passenger cars. Larger vehicles may want to stay closer to the trailhead to prevent getting stuck in sand or high-centering on large rocks in the trail. There are roughly five campsites along the trail, each with semi-privacy on a popular trail with unique views.
