Highlight: Hidden Canyon Rim Escape
Hidden Canyon Rim Escape is a short but obstacle-filled "short-cut" to exit the Hidden Canyon Overlook; or conversely, the shortest 4WD route to access Hidden Canyon Overlook from Highway 313. Like all off-road trails in Moab, the Hidden Canyon Rim Escape trail feature spectacular desert and mountain vistas. The steep obstacles can be intimidating but are within the capabilities of a stock vehicle for an experienced driver. Use 4WD low gears, and choose your lines wisely!

This trail is better when you connect it with Hidden Canyon Overlook. This one has a couple fun little obstacles, but overall there are better trails to do as "stand-alone" type trails. Definitely make a day of it and run it with Hidden Canyon Overlook.
