This trail is a great mountain biking trail. I suppose it would also be good for 4x4 vehicles. Take plenty of water or have a support vehicle.

We experienced the MOST WONDERFUL 5 days following the White Rim Trail with our Land Rover securely piloting us along the beautifully barren rocky roads. Cliff edges plummeting 100's of feet below graced the roadway miles at a time. Our breath was taken away too...More

In preparation for this trip, I read heaps of reviews and watched an embarrassing amount of youtube videos. I felt like that did help but let me add some thoughts with the hope of helping others. We took the clockwise route, starting at Shafer Trail...More

HI, thinking of taking the white rim trail on our next trip.. Not biking or camping, just wanting to drive and explore. Looking for hikes and sights to make sure not to miss on route. Is it worth driving the whole thing or is there a good destination to drive to and turn around? We are staying in Moab and plan to just spend one day doing this. Want to make the most of it!
