My Trail Reviews (3)

(within last 6 months)
Long Canyon (10/09/2022)
This was a fun trail. It was really fun driving down the winding narrow canyon back to Moab from Dead Horse Point State Park. I was surprised at how washed out the beginning of the trail was, though. From the top after the initial switchback through waypoints 4 and 5 was the hardest and after that it's extremely easy. What makes 4 and 5 so hard though is that it was very washed out. Only 1 vehicle width on the road and then it washes out on both sides. The famous rock "tunnel" was also pretty washed out and had some fun 1ft drops; nothing too crazy, but if you're in a stock vehicle you may want a spotter.
Gemini Bridges (10/09/2022)
I run Gemini Bridges almost every time I'm in Moab. It isn't the funnest or most scenic, but it is super accessible and is a good introductory trail to people new to off roading. It has a little bit of everything including a couple of fun optional rocks to crawl over if you want a safe way to test out your rig. A great way to spend the day is Gemini Bridges to Dead Horse Point State Park then either to Long Canyon back to Moab or Shafer Trail to Potash Road back to Moab.
Onion Creek (10/08/2022)
This was my second time running Onion Creek. It's always a great time, but this time the water was incredibly low. Rather than the fun creek crossings it was more like crossing trickles. Still very scenic, but lacked the power of my previous visit. Also, both times on this trail I'd say it's about a 1 in difficulty; I have no clue where the 3 comes from, it's quite easy. No significant shelves, no crawling, just winding canyon roads that can be steep at times.
