The Easiest “Trail” In Moab: Because Some People Want EasyPosted in Moab Experience: 2017 on April 10, 2017
Let’s be honest, not everyone is ready to wheel hard trails, in fact some of you may not be ready to drive moderate trails. But did you know that there is a trail in Moab that is perfect for the super newbie? It’s not hard, but it is beautiful and it’s a great trail to explore in just about any vehicle. We know that Moab isn’t the destination everyone can enjoy annually, but this trail is perfect if you’re passing through and want to see what Moab is all about.
The “trail” isn’t even really a trail, it’s actually a road known as Kane Creek Road. It’s just outside of Moab and it’s partially paved and mostly gravel. It passes very popular trails such as Moab Rim, Cliffhanger, and Pritchett Canyon, all of which are better suited for a well-built 4x4, but Kane Creek Road can be driven in almost any bone stock vehicle, 2WD or 4WD.
So why would you want to ever explore this road? Because not everyone is excited to drive tough red rock trails, some just want to see the beauty of Moab without the skidplate bashing, tilt-o-meter maxing, low range grinding challenges. The drive has amazing red rock views, tons of cool camping spots, great rock climbing, biking, hiking, and petroglyphs. And if you’re in Moab for the first time this is a great place to drive or take someone who is less than experienced.
