Overview

One would think that a trail with a name like Dubinky would be based on a family name. But that is not the case with Dubinky Well Road. The term originates from two brothers, Red and Dubinky Anderson. The story gets murkier because it is unknown if "Dubinky" was Dubinky's given first name or if it came from the rumored story of running from a ghost. Storytellers say he was so scared it caused him to run ten miles to what was to become Dubinky Ranch. Either way, Dubinky Well Road near Moab is steeped in ranching history, and the well itself was once grand central for those seeking water.  Today, it provides easy access to several more famous roads, beautiful views of the La Sal Mountains to the southeast, and the longest cliff line in the world, the Book Cliffs, to the north.
