Highlights

Highlight: Devil's Racetrack
This is an absolutely iconic trail in the San Rafael Swell area. You can see for miles on end along a good majority of the trail. There are also a number of natural arches you spot while driving the almost 8 miles. Although this trail may not provide a lot of challenges, it is well worth the trip if you happen to be in the area. Combine this trail with Fixit Pass for a good morning to early evening trip, leaving room for a little time at camp before it gets dark. This trail is fairly well traveled so you will likely see somebody at some point if you are here on the weekends. Weekdays could be hit or miss. Even with its popularity, keep in mind that this area of Utah is known for flash floods and quick weather change. Due to the isolation, be prepared with plenty of food and water and extra clothes in case of emergency.

Mapping Crew - Utah

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, he's only been off-roading since he was 16 but fell in love immediately. He attended college in Denver for Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management and wheeled in Colorado for 4 years, but ended up moving back home to Salt Lake City. He currently works in an off-road shop and spends his free time doing anything he can to stay busy, which is usually working on his jeep or playing music. Outside of off-roading, he is an avid whitewater rafter and outdoor cook. Camping at least every other weekend in any season is a normal year. The further from civilization, the better. Bring on the memories!
