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.

Fun trail. Quiet, we saw no one else on the trail. The slick rock section is a lot of fun. This trail is less about the technical side and more about enjoying the ride. I would plan on doin this as an out and back if you’re in a full size, as the escape route to salt valley road was definitely very challenging for the truck.

Fun trail with a short hike at the end to breath taking views. We ran a Bronco Badlands 2 door and Wrangler 2 door on 33's with no issues. Just watch out for that wide flat rock near the beginning, it can jump up and bite you if you're not paying attention. Other than that, the trail itself is not difficult. We ran this late morning good weather. This was our first time to Moab and driving this trail is like nothing you find in other parts of the country. While on the vast slick rock it almost feels like you're on another world.

Definitely a fun trail but can get a little sketchy when wet and muddy. There are a few parts where the road is washing away a bit and you get some pretty strong lean toward the edge. Overall had a good time but my heart skipped a few beats!

A little snow and some cold temps today, but a fun day on the trail. Didn’t see another vehicle.
