Trail Information


After an adrenaline-charged day of tackling Moab's more demanding offroad trails, Arth's Pasture serves as the perfect cooldown. While less technical, this trail doesn't compromise on the natural spectacle; it offers consistent, picturesque views toward the La Sal Mountains, making it a favorite spot for photo ops. As you reach the trail's end, the vista reveals the Manti-La Sal National Forest Mountain range and its surrounding wilderness. Although initially an exit route for the more intense Metal Masher, Arth's Pasture holds its own as a standalone out-and-back journey. For those looking to extend their adventure, this trail pairs excellently with nearby routes like Gemini Bridges, Four Arches Canyon, and Bull Canyon, making it an essential part of a full day of scenic yet manageable wheeling.

Not difficult at all, and nothing too challenging, except making sure you find the right entry point off Gemini Bridges road. Using 2 different GPS settings (TO and my Truck's stock). Metal Mashers and Arths entries are separated by like 25-50 ft. We ended up going up Metal Mashers first, which fortunately the beginning of MM is very, very calm. HOWEVER, I wasn't ready to test the rest so turned around, headed back to Gemini Bridges, then went over the 25 feet or so to Arth's entry. There are a lot of signs around for Metal Mashers, just beware if you're looking for a leisurely off-roading experience to not end up testing yourself when you weren't planning on it :).

I was checking on this trail and some others in the area. Little rougher, but no real changes to this trail writeup!

Spent the afternoon mapping this trail. I cannot say enough about how scenic this trail is with very low traffic.
