Our first time on this trail, we ran it in reverse. The trail was all mainly two-wheel drive but to be safe I used four-high in a couple of spots. I would imagine the narrow ledges around WP 5 may be intimidating to the inexperienced. Slow and steady is key. The colors in the different dirt layers are very photogenic but probably not the best to see early in the morning. We used this trail to get down to the White Wash Dunes OHV area.

Rating 2 would be exact for Jeeps but for a full size, i'd probably rate it 3 due to the tightness of some spots but still doable, did high centered my truck but that was my fault. Ran it both direction

First time driving this trail, really enjoyed the unique setting. Off the beaten path and a moon-like landscape.

This is the beginning of the Easter Jeep Safari week in Moab and Crystal Geyser Jeep Trail will start to see more activity than normal. I ran the trail at the start of the EJS week and found it to be in great shape and unchanged from previous years. This area has seen above average moisture which helped to keep the dust down.

I have driven this trail a few times from both the north to south and south to north as well as when dry and in the snow. This trail is best combined with Dee Pass which makes up the route they run at the Easter Jeep Safari. I give this trail a 3 rating as a stand-alone trail, but when combining it with the other trails the area I like it much better.
