Overview

Flat Iron Mesa is a tough 4x4 route typically run as part of the Easter Jeep Safari and other events in the area. This trail will leave you feeling accomplished and tired at the very end. Almost every inch of it will test your driving skill and your vehicle's suspension as you manage the named obstacles of Tilt-A-Whirl, The Chutes, Easter Egg Hill, and The Intimidator, which is one of the more scary obstacles in the Moab area. Between the rock crawling, you will take in beautiful views of Coyote Canyon, Hatch Wash, and its namesake, Flat Iron Mesa. This trail is perfect for those seeking a challenge and a full day of adventure.
