2. There’s a trail for every experience level.

Between the various scenic trails that cross the area, there’s truly a Moab adventure for every experience level. Beginners, for instance, might take their Jeep rental to Onion Creek and Fisher Towers, a two-hour trip through an easy access terrain. As they get more accustomed to all things off-road culture, they might move on to a moderate option, like Klondike Bluffs or Monitor and Merrimac trails. More experienced off-roaders can move on to the more advanced rugged terrain of Poison Spider Mesa or even the Moab Rim Trail.

Even if you aren't at the recommended experience level for every trail, that doesn't mean that you can't see and experience it. Even the famous Hell's Revenge Trail can be experienced at practically any level when you sign up for one of our Slickrock Hummer Safari tours. One of our skilled and knowledgeable drivers will handle the technical driving for you, so you can experience all the thrills and see the breathtaking sights in safety.
