Trail Information

Highlights

In the Utah desert halfway between Moab and Green River, Dee Pass travels through the jagged rocks spattered throughout this desolate territory. It is extremely arid, and very little vegetation grows here. Dee Pass is one of the roads that, when combined with others, make up the Easter Jeep Safari Crystal Geyser route. A few rocky obstacles await your journey through an area that can resemble a drive on the moon. Dee Pass is not your typical Moab trail.

I ran this trail for the first time on a warm February morning. We ran it from north to south, the reverse of how this write-up is presented. We connected it to several other trails for a day loop. Since the last trail review, WP 05, the large rock obstacle has become more rutted out and some very larger boulders have become exposed. I have watched all the videos and looked at all the pics, it's worse. The entire area up that climb is much wider now because of people trying to avoid being hung up on the boulders. A locker may be needed to safely get up this one now. You definitely need some very good ground clearance!!

Big fan of this trail. Couple rock climbs in the beginning that look tougher than they are. Beautiful painted rock formations along the whole ride. 10/10 will be back again. I took the route right into the Salt Wash Trail system and had a great day.

This was a really fun trail, although I wish I reviewed this guide before I ran it. I combined my run with Crystal Geyser, but I ran it in reverse (towards Moab). It felt like a western Colorado trail to me as it didn’t really have the famous slick rock of the Moab area, but it had great views, unique scenery, and variety of terrain. The Dee Pass climb was definitely the toughest part, but there are easier lines available and my friend in a KL Cherokee (with 2in lift) made it look easy. I think having good driver skills helps here, but if you watch my video, you’ll see that even someone driving poorly (me) can get through it. I hope you check this trail out as it really is a great one!

This is a very scenic trail with a couple of challenging spots. It's great to combine this with other trails in the area for making an entire day out of it. I highly recommend this trail!
