Trail Information


The Pickle is an extremely short 4X4 trail with only a few challenging obstacles. It follows a wash through a canyon less than 100 feet deep. With one extremely narrow, mandatory section, this trail is not recommended for full-size trucks. This is a great trail to test your off-road rig's suspension or learn how to scale the slickrock ledges that Moab is known for. It is also a bit cooler, with plenty of shade provided by the canyon walls.

Short trail, as advertised, but a lot of fun. As mentioned above, the JK in our group had more problems than longer wheelbases (JKU and LJ) and had to be winched up Jalapeño Pickle. We ran this trail, then Hidden Canyon, and then down to Seven Mile Rim. With stops and traffic on 7R, it was around an 8 hour day, but a great one. The 6 hrs combined estimate for wheeling all three trails from was pretty accurate. While not as difficult or as long, it almost felt like a "Mini Trifecta". Would absolutely wheel this route again.

Visited the trail as part of the Yukon EJS night run. This trail makes for a great night run as it's short, and the canyon really lights up well at night.

I was with a group who had done the trail before. I was not planning on running it while in moab but I’m glad we did what an awesome trail! My jku sport with no lockers was able to complete it with good spotters.

Fun trail that posed some challenges to our trucks with front and rear lockers. Mud in some spots made for an additional challenge. We made it out with some minor body damage despite front and rear bumpers and sliders
