There are stunning views along the entire White Rim Road.
There are no services in the area, you must return to Moab for
food and gas.
Dual Sport Dirt Bikes can complete the trail if you get a very
early start. Jeeps typically take 2-3 days and Mountain
Bike take 3 days to complete the trail.
Watch out for Mountain Bikes on the trail. Sometime it can be
frustrating to pass a Jeep or Mountain bike only to have them
pass you back if you stop for a picture. This picture was
taken in front of the butte John Wesley Powell made famous
called Butte's of the Cross. He thought it was 1 butte but
it is actually 2.
In many places you can ride right to the edge of the canyon.
This is one of my favorite views of the Green River along the
Hardscramble hill is not very difficult but after about 80 miles
of off road riding, mental and physical fatigue start to set in
and you will make some mistakes.
Just as you are approaching Canyonlands National Park boarder
you will see the neat desert corral.
Green River as seen near Mineral Bottom. The Jeep road in
this area starts to get easier.
