Trail Information

Highlights

Dinosaur tracks, slickrock, and washes - consider this trail your very own off-road Jurassic Park experience, without the risk of being eaten by Velociraptors. Klondike Bluffs, sitting just north of Moab and bordering the 300-million years old formations of Arches National Park is truly an enjoyable and interesting 4WD trail. It travels alongside the visible evidence of the Jurassic time period and right up to the mysterious looking rock formations of the Bluffs and Arches National Park. Combine this trail with Klondike Bluffs Escape for a visually stimulating route into Salt Valley and Arches National Park.

A bit cold today and somewhat muddy, but never a bad day on the trail in Utah. Ran this with a brand new stock 392 wrangler.

Fun trail and the dinosaur tracks are a definite bonus. A few technical sections which added some spice to the trail. We ran it in a ‘21 Gladiator Rubicon with a Mopar 2 inch lift and 35s without any issues.

Stock Wrangler on 33’s and had no issues on any obstacles which is good cause we were the only ones out there this morning. Our daughter had her first experience navigating and we were thankful for the white strips leading the way up the rock. That being said it’s definitely rough in places and getting down to Salt Valley Road definitely triggered the pucker factor in the passengers. Driver of course had a blast. The descent IS a sh@tshow and should not be attempted by a beginner. I think that section needs its own rating. .

This is a great trail - we ran it backwards from Salt Valley Road using the Klondike Bluffs Connector - the obstacles are fun and easy with multiple line choices making it a fun trail for any vehicle. The slick rock section has some cool cracks to play on. The step shown in the trail review isn't that big. Breakover angle was a problem for some of our vehicles - had to be careful not to belly drag stuff off on the crest, but only if going straight over it. There's a steep rock that we came down - you can easily go around it. Required some good line choice to avoid tipping, but super fun.

Jeep TJ with 2.5 lift and 35” tires handled the trail well, route finding on slick rock became a challenge at times. Found end of trail at outlook to have the gate closed so unable to hike further. Baby Steps exit portion verged on difficult at times as trail has experienced some erosion and trail use…
