West Rim Boulevard is a rough and sandy connector trail traveling along the western edge of Sand Mountain. The trail connects West Rim and Water Tower Road and is primarily used to access more challenging trails like The Maze, Fawlty Towers, and Renegade. A portion of West Rim Boulevard, south of the West Fenceline Road, is part of the West Rim Lite route, bypassing obstacles like V-Notch, The Squeeze, and Wall of Doom. West Rim Boulevard offers fantastic views of St. George, Washington, Warner Valley, and the Arizona Strip. The road surface is a mix of everything, with rough dirt sections, soft sandy sections, protruding slickrock sections, and a couple of loose hill climbs. Besides a few slow spots that may require low range, this trail has no major obstacles and is suitable for any stock 4-wheel drive vehicle without any modifications.

About Sand Mountain

Sand Mountain is an extremely unique parcel of public land. Designated as an Open OHV Area, riders are free to make their own trails. Due to this, many of the long-established named trail routes have several variations that can take easier or more challenging routes through the intended trail. The GPX track for this trail helps you navigate the area, but various lines, bypasses, and additional obstacles may exist along the way. Riders are encouraged to stay on existing trails and not unnecessarily drive over or destroy vegetation.


Riding on Sand Mountain is entirely free. However, there are multiple entry/exit points for the area, including "the tunnel," which connects Sand Hollow State Park to the open OHV area. Any entry into the boundaries of Sand Hollow State Park requires a Utah State Park Pass.


When operating on Sand Mountain, users must attach an orange or red safety flag to the vehicle, rising at least 8 feet off the ground.
