Crystal Geyser is a popular destination for off-roaders in Moab and Green River, Utah. Located only a few miles Southeast of Green River, Utah, Crystal Geyser is an example of a cold-water, carbon dioxide driven geyser. Geothermal activity is not involved in the geyser’s eruption. The tangerine, copper, and white colors deposited around the geyser’s base add a vibrant hue to an otherwise gray countryside.
Crystal Geyser Road, also known as Little Valley Road, is the easiest and most direct way to the geyser itself. Several 4x4 trails meander through the rugged country between Moab and Green River and terminate at this very spot. One route, which is used during Moab’s Easter Jeep Safari, is called the Crystal Geyser Jeep Route. If you chose another route to the geyser, Crystal Geyser Road is the easiest way to depart the area.

Tim lives and works in Northern Colorado. He has owned and driven 4X4 vehicles his entire adult life including Jeeps, pick ups, ATVs and UTVs. After high school, Tim's first 4X4 was a 47 Willy's CJ-2A with a flat 4 and a 6-volt electrical system. Typically wheeling in Northern Colorado or Southern Wyoming, Tim loves being in the mountains and the back country. Because of a desire to enjoy and promote responsible off-roading and to keep it available for the future, he belongs to a local 4X4 off-road club. Being part of the Trailsoffroad.com community furthers that goal as well.
A love for off-road adventures, camping, fishing, and hunting keeps Tim away from pavement and always exploring. While his wife likes the comfort of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, Tim prefers the ruggedness of the Jeep Wrangler. Although most off-road time is spent in Colorado and Wyoming, an occasional trip to the Moab area is common. Tim will spend the summer going topless and enjoying the value of the great outdoors.
