A soft sandy trail can quickly turn into a flat rocky surface on this road that lays between Moab and Green River, Utah. The highlight of the trail is where the road crosses Dripping Springs. The road travels through a terrain known as riparian, the area of wetlands adjacent to rivers and streams. When combined with other nearby trails, Dripping Springs Road can be a trip segment that can add a cooling break to an otherwise hot day in the high desert.
The trailhead for Dripping Springs is marked by an old faded wooden BLM sign. The road begins as a very soft sandy surface as it proceeds to the north. The desert terrain is wide open in these parts and you can see steep rock cliffs off in the distance.
Take Highway 191 North about nine miles to Utah 313. Turn left (west) on Utah 313 to mile marker 14 (8.5 miles) to the vicinity of Lone Mesa Campground. Turn right (north) onto Dubinky Well Road (BLM 137). Continue on Dubinky Well Road for six miles to the intersection of Spring Canyon Point Road. Turn left (west) on Spring Canyon Point Road for 2.9 miles. Dripping Springs takes off to the right (north) and is marked by a wooden sign that says, “Dripping Springs.”
Tim lives and works in Northern Colorado. He has owned and driven 4X4 vehicles his entire adult life including Jeeps, pick ups, ATVs and UTVs. After high school, Tim's first 4X4 was a 47 Willy's CJ-2A with a flat 4 and a 6-volt electrical system. Typically wheeling in Northern Colorado or Southern Wyoming, Tim loves being in the mountains and the back country. Because of a desire to enjoy and promote responsible off-roading and to keep it available for the future, he belongs to a local 4X4 off-road club. Being part of the Trailsoffroad.com community furthers that goal as well.
A love for off-road adventures, camping, fishing, and hunting keeps Tim away from pavement and always exploring. While his wife likes the comfort of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, Tim prefers the ruggedness of the Jeep Wrangler. Although most off-road time is spent in Colorado and Wyoming, an occasional trip to the Moab area is common. Tim will spend the summer going topless and enjoying the value of the great outdoors.
