Trail Information

Highlights

Situated near Moab, Utah and partially within Arches National Park, Willow Springs Road is a great way to experience the Arches backcountry without the crowds. Desert washes, dinosaur tracks, and unique rock formations make this a great road to combine with Eye of the Whale and Tower Arch for a great day of wheeling within a National Park.

Ran in reverse from guide. Great back way into Arches. I much rather be on a bouncy dirt road than stuck behind a motorhome on pavement.

This was a fun little trail even in the rain! The storm clouds and lightning added to the adventure (be aware of your surroundings in these conditions please). The Dino prints are really neat! Really nice way into Arches if the height of the front entrance intimidates some folks.

A bit boring, but the dinosaur tracks were pretty cool!

Pretty straightforward although there are some surprisingly rocky bits just after the NP boundary heading west. Fun trail. The dinosaur tracks were a cool bonus. Sneaky back way into Arches ;)

Nice road. Enjoyed the dinosaur tracks. Used this road as a connector to connect to Tower Arch and Eye of the whale. Eventually out on Salt Valley road.
