I took this trail with my mom, who turned 70 this year. We both loved it. Only wish it was bit longer. It was fairly quick to the bottom. She was enjoying more than I did as I was the one driving. We took this trail to Potash Rd to Moab as we heard that it'll take 11 hours to... 更多
We elected to take the Shafer Trail Road to Potash Road as an alternate route back to Moab from Canyonlands. The park ranger at the visitor center encouraged us and said it would save us time. While the signs caution 4WD as necessary, we proceeded in our AWD Outback based on the ranger. This road is not for the faint... 更多
A great offroad trail for beginners; nothing too hairy and you can manage in an AWD/4WD with 8-9 inch clearance. Note that you need a proper 4WD to do the White Rim Trail.
It was a great path but you can just stop and look and photograph the sights of all the rocks formations. Walk, and see everytging
This offers great view of the entire view of the canyon this trail is long however you wont regret the time spend when you reach the end.
We have both driven and bicycled this trail. It's fun! Several times when I have been at the bottom and looked back up at the trail, I have thought, who thought they could make a trail here that could be driven? You can camp at Airport which is a short distance away, or turn the opposite direction, drive just outside... 更多
My wife wouldn't let me drive our rental car down this steep set of switchbacks. Several people, however, stood and watched the 4x4s navigate the road with ease. I get excited just looking at the attached pictures with jeeps climbing the hills. If you have the opportunity to take the White Rim Trail- do it!
This drive was one of the BEST things we did while in Canyonlands NP! Our weather was great, so driving down in a non-4X4 Suburban wasn't an issue at all. I can totally see how one could be in trouble if rain had moved in, though, so mind the weather. We drove slowly and stopped at the turns to check... 更多
My husband talked to a Park Ranger at Canyonlands who told him that he drove his Suburban down the Shafer Canyon Trail and into Moab, Utah (35 miles). So my husband thought his Chevy Silverado could do the job! The trail is very well maintained, especially in the Canyonlands area. However, because the trail is directly on the "LIP" or... 更多
We did the Shafer Trail from the top down, simply breathtaking views. We have a 4x4, but never used it, just low gear and watching for anyone coming up. We waited at the switchbacks where there was more room for side by side passing. I would recommend driving it, if you feel confident and want to experience few other visitors.
