Salt Wash Road is part of the Easter Jeep Safari "Crystal Geyser" route and is a connecting road that links several other 4WD trails in the desert between Moab and Green River, Utah. The road is very easy and uneventful, however, the surrounding rocks along the road's west end are intriguing. Salt Wash deposits bright white colors into the otherwise red colored rocks making for some beautifully layered color formations. Because these contrasting layers in the cliffs line the wash area, the west end of Salt Wash Road is a popular dispersed desert camping destination.
October is a great time of the year visit the back roads of Utah. Salt Wash Road is a great connector to several truely enjoyable, moderate trails. A nice round trip includes taking Salt Wash Trail north towards Crystal Geyser then head back south on Crystal Geyser Jeep Trail.
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.
