        Hellís Revenge

o       Departure Time: 10:00AM

o       Meeting Place: Old City Park

o       This trail can be very intimidating. This is not a technically challenging trail if you stick to the bypasses but there are areas with very steep drop-offs that cannot be avoided. There are a lot of breathtaking views, steep climbs and descents, and optional challenges. Despite all the challenges, it is a must-do trail when wheeling in Moab. This trail is a loop that ends a short distance down the road from the start and you will need to go back thru the entrance station if you leave a tow rig at the trailhead.

This trail is straight through and you will end quite far from where you start. You will need to plan for some pavement travel with your trail vehicle.

        Pritchett Canyon

o       This is just about the most difficult trail in the Moab area, at least on BLM land, and continues to get more difficult each year. You must have front & rear recovery points, lockers, and minimum 35Ē tires. Your vehicle should also be capable of running at steep angles. Having a winch is a big plus. This trail is a straight through type with the end being quite some distance from the start; depending on the group sometimes the trail is run in and back out to end at the starting point.
