Highlight: Wipe-Out Hill
Wipe-Out Hill is undoubtedly an intimidating trail name, but in no way should the one optional obstacle be the only reason for running this trail. There is so much more. Once you exit the pavement, immediately leaving the packed mini-vans behind, you'll be enveloped by the landscape, and red sandstone cliffs fill your windshield. This is one of those trails where you put it in 4-low and leave it there for the next couple of hours. Several early challenges will ensure your rig is ready for the big show at the midway point of the loop. Wipe-Out Hill is an optional steep slab of sandstone with off-camber vertical ledges. The climb up and down is optional and not for the inexperienced. The loop's second half is a scenic drive below the cliffs. The challenges in this section are ideal for stock type 4x4s. Be sure to look for unique rock formations along the way.

1. Trailhead (0 mi)
The trail begins at the blind trailhead along UT-313. There is limited room for a group to stage at the trailhead. The trail end is nearby and a good point to air down tires and stage a group. Running the trail in reverse makes the loop easier. Most of the obstacles are downhill.

While living in the Midwest, I developed a passion for searching out new trails and hidden spots. That passion continues to this day in the beautiful southwestern United States. My wife and I are full-time RVers who travel from region to region, exploring every nook and cranny we can find. While we're getting to know the locals, we gain insight into these areas then pass on that knowledge to our subscribers. We truly enjoy traversing long, beautiful back-country routes with epic campsites, but we equally enjoy pushing the limits on challenging rock crawling trails. Our rig was built to do everything, and that's what we hope to share with our subscribers.
