Overview

Driving out to the point and walking up to the edge of Rainbow Rim is breathtaking. The adrenaline rush of slowly approaching the edge of the 400-foot vertical cliff is something you will never forget. Countless overlooks in the Moab area require quite a bit of effort to reach either on foot or in a Jeep. Rainbow Rim is an excellent way for the family or a group to experience the feeling of walking up to a breathtaking overlook without committing to an arduous all-day beat down. This memorable trail has no rock crawling or challenging obstacles. Instead, the mild mix of Moab-type terrain entertains even the seasoned wheeler.
