Kawasaki Teryx on Cliff Hanger
Cliff Hanger – The 8 rated Cliff Hanger trail lives up to it’s name.

Right from the beginning you will be gripping your steering wheel tight as you drop in from the trail head. Prepare yourself for a fun filled day.

Hell's Revenge
Hell’s Revenge – The 5+ rated Hell’s Revenge trail exposes great expanses of “Slick Rock” (sandstone) with slopes so steep you will wonder if your tires can maintain traction. The very steep climbs and descents on the slick rock are not for the faint of heart and cannot be bypassed.

Behind the Rocks
Behind the Rocks – The 8+ rated Behind the Rocks trail offers extremes in 4-Wheeling from two track level road to obstacles that most drivers with good sense would avoid. Views of the very rugged Behind the Rocks weather sculpted sandstone are impressive along the way. Running it backwards compounds the difficulty of the key obstacles. Breakdowns are to be expected and roll-overs are not uncommon.

Steel Bender
Steel Bender – The 6 rated Steel Bender trail follows a historic wagon road that works its way up from a beautiful canyon to elevations above 6,000 feet. It features 2 creek crossings, numerous steep ledges, and two challenging rocky climbs that have bypasses. Steel Bender starts on private land immediately northeast of the Moab Golf Course and ends at Kens Lake. This is a trail that can be run in reverse and is becoming increasingly popular to do so.

Moab Rim
Moab Rim – The 7+ rated Moab Rim trail ascends steeply tilted rock strata to climb to the top corner (and beyond) of the Moab Rim at the Colorado River just east of Moab. Dangerous obstacles, spectacular views in all directions and ancient Indian ruins add excitement to the trip.

Tech Trails
