Trail Information

Highlights

Copper Ridge is a popular Easter Jeep Safari route that combines numerous trails within this scenic region north of Moab. The trail begins with a stop at a fantastic dinosaur track site with multiple large footprints left behind in the sandstone. You'll then work your way over to what's left of the 1969 movie set for the movie "Blue." The trail then travels to the white slick rock and more challenging obstacles. In the distance, you'll have spectacular views of the Arches National Park rock formations and further the Las Sal mountains. Waypoint 21 will test your vehicle's climbing abilities and your nerves. The final point of interest is the Seven Mile Canyon pour-off. You can park right on the cliff's edge and reflect on the epic day you just had on the trail.

Mostly just a nice drive through the desert. A few areas of wide open slick rock. As you creep across the moonscape at waypoint 14 be sure to watch for white lines carefully. It's easy to get lost. Stay far right. The final obstacle is difficult and badly eroded on the left approach. The trail is a solid 3/4 with the last obstacle a 6/7.

We ran this route from north to south; we had to climb up the hard part at WP 21, which was awesome. The dino tracks are an excellent way to begin the morning. I have issues with my legs, so I appreciated being allowed to drive up to the dino tracks. It was a fun rock crawl getting up there too. The highlights were driving on the white sandstone and seeing all the different landscapes. This is one of those trails that has a little of everything. You get scenery, and you get some exciting challenges along the way.
