Trail Information


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.

We ran along a portion of this route to work our way down to the White Wash Dunes OHV area. The route was well-groomed and we only saw one other person out there. If you want the area all to yourself, I highly suggest visiting this place in the winter. We came in from the north on Crystal Geyser Jeep Trail. It was an easy 4x4 high clearance trail leading to the Green River area. Pictures are of the dunes area.

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.
