Best Jeep Trails: Beginner & Intermediate

When you rent a Jeep, or any other available 4x4 rental in town, they will qualify and/or restrict your list of trails to these beginner and intermediate trails. Beginner and intermediate trails are no less epic or spectacular than the list of more extreme trails further below, but they are somewhat less difficult, technical, or extreme. You'll thank us for the heads up once you see where these trails take you, and when you understand what the words "difficult", "technical" and "extreme" mean in Moab 4x4 terms!

Best Jeep Trails: Difficult & Advanced

The terms "difficult" or "advanced" are relative terms but be warned that those are perhaps in the extreme, as in "extremely technical" in Moab, Utah. On these more difficult routes, 4x4 off-roading becomes "rock crawling". Yes, there's a difference! Let's put it this way: every Easter weekend Moab is home to the Jeep Safari where a parade of balloon-tired, jacked-up 4x4 extreme machines converge, with their equally insane owners challenge each other in the most extreme rock crawling obstacles perhaps on planet earth. Throughout the rest of year the same test happens again and again on these trails, only without the official parade effect. These routes are less about access to the remote scenery so abundant in Moab and much more about seeing what man and machine can achieve with 4x4, horsepower, and technique.

Hells Revenge Trail


One of the most popular and iconic trails in Moab. It offers a wide range of obstacles and amazing views of slickrock domes and the La Sal Mountains.
