Help Save Moab’s Most Famous Trails

The future is in our hands.

It’s up to us enthusiasts to save Moab’s best trails.Justin W. Coffey

Red Rock 4-Wheelers and other off-roading clubs are calling on enthusiasts to help save the future of some of Moab, Utah’s best and most famous trails. The ask comes in the wake of the Bureau of Land Management publishing a plan that threatens the future use of the Labyrinth Rims and Gemini Bridges trails, among others. It’s up to us to help keep the trails open, and comments must be posted by October 7, 2022.

The possible future closures have just been published on the Bureau of Land Management’s website, which is also where everyone should go for more information on how to help keep the trails open. This proposal concerns a lot of what Moab is famous for: Hey Joe Canyon, Hell Roaring Canyon, Golden Spike, Gold Bar Rim, Rusty Nail, Day Canyon Point, Dead Man Point, Bull Canyon, Ten Mile Canyon, and 3D/Mashed Potatoes Jeep trails, the Dead Cow and Tubes motorcycle trails, parts of Where Eagles Dare, Buttes and Towers, Wipe Out Hill, and 7 Mile Rim. Comments made must support the pro-motorized use “alternatives D or A,” and oppose “B and C.

Red Rock 4-Wheelers says, “This is probably the most important travel management plan of the decade and will decide the fate of most of Moab’s most famous Jeep trails.”

Comments are accepted through October 7 and we urge everyone to chime in immediately.
