Are you looking for a Moab offroad trail that isn't over the top like "Metal Masher" or "Hell's Revenge"? Sevenmile Rim is the perfect trail to gain confidence to tackle those more difficult trails or soak in the sights. Packed with views in its entire 13-mile distance, it has every terrain type throughout the Moab region. The trail travels along the rim of the Big Mesa area with fantastic views to the east and the south into Sevenmile Canyon. As a bonus, you can get up close and personal with "Uranium Arch," which is just as majestic as those found in the National Park. This is the perfect trail for new drivers to Moab to get yourself and your skills ready for fantastic wheeling found nowhere else in the world.

Extremely fun. Will require a lift but tires and good tire placement in many places! Weather and views were beautiful.

Beautiful fun trail. It is a 4 for sure, so expect some grinding in a stock vehicle. The hardest parts are series of ledges that you must climb. We also had a final obstacle that is a 5 that we could not go around. The bypass was closed. Video attached below. Fun trail.

This is a great run for a warm up of Moab’s difficult trails. Some small challenges to wet the appetite for more difficult trails. Rating is spot on, including a stop for lunch, we spent just under 5 hours on the trail.

I wouldn't feel comfortable rating the trail since we only did a few waypoints. The first part was definitely a challenge for our Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. There are many sharp rocks and some steep ledges that require patient crawling with frequent spotting. High clearance, 4-low, and aired-down all-terrains are a must. For the section we did, the mandatory difficulty rating of 4 seems very appropriate. I think the trail is much more appropriate for more capable vehicles than ours.
