Overview

With breathtaking views, heart-pounding switchbacks, and epic backcountry camping, what else could you want in a 4x4 adventure? Flint Trail is the southern gateway for one of America's most remote offroad trips. The views hit you right away along the towering Orange Cliffs of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. The bright orange cliffs tower over the trail as you zigzag beneath the shadows of precariously balanced stone behemoths. Natural arches and spires are abundant along the southern portion of the route, reminiscent of Monument Valley. Once inside the Glen Canyon area, the terrain changes to a more forested high desert with narrow cliff edge views and the infamous 800-foot climb on the narrow exposed Flint Switchbacks. Planning and preparation will help, but experience is key to safely navigating through this remote region of central Utah.
