Trail Information

Highlights

One of the closest 4wd trails to the town of Moab, Moab Rim is a difficult and dangerous trail that requires your undivided attention but rewards you with awe-inspiring views of the Colorado River and the town of Moab. Climbing 950 vertical feet from the base of the canyon next to the river, you will encounter many rock ledges and tight turns, all of which you must traverse while leaning off-camber towards the cliff edge. With tons of obstacles and epic scenery, this trail is sure to entertain even the most hardcore wheeler. This off-road trail is also a great trail if you are short on time or want to hit one quick trail while passing through town.

Ran up to the first overlook with Revkit on an EJS night run. Very busy!! This is one of my top 2 favorite night run trails in Moab.

Moab Rim is an iconic, must-do trail in Moab. The challenging rock crawling section at the beginning is a ton of fun, and then you get into the amazing scenic views. This is a long day of wheeling, so make sure you have food, water, and gas.

The most challenging part of the trail is perhaps at the beginning and even then it's just some rock crawling. Nothing too tricky if you were on 35s or bigger. Very scenic.
