Triangle Road is an interesting and scenic part of the overland route from Grand Junction to Moab. The easy 25-mile track has relatively simple dirt roads with small rock shelf sections. The most exciting part of the trail is the crossing of the Delores River. Normally two to three feet deep, the Deores can rise to five feet or more during the Spring runoff. Just be sure to scout the crossing. Swinging in a right arc seemed to be an easier crossing than straight though. While the rest of the trail is easily done by a 2WD vehicle, the river crossing requires 4WD and a bit of clearance. Once past the river, the trail's western end at Highway 128's Dewey Bridge is a mere 3 miles down the road.

The trail offers plenty of camping for overland vehicles and tent campers if you choose to go light. There are several designated campsites between Highway 128 and the river crossing.
