Canyon Rims Traverse Trail

The Canyon Rims Recreation Area (CRRA) is a large area of public land that is located east of Canyonlands National Park. It extends from Anticline Overlook above Hurrah Pass in the north to Dark Canyon and Butler Wash in the south. A great way to explore the northern part of CRRA is to start at the LNG pipeline off of UT-191, and ride south on the wide, graded gravel road, past Looking Glass Rock, the Rockland Ranch colony, and into Hatch Wash. Continue southward until the road terminates at the paved Needles Overlook Road (133). Turn left onto this paved road and follow it for around five miles, past the Wind Whistle BLM Campground and around Rone Bailey Mesa. Take a right onto the dirt 137 road just before a wash at the bottom of a hill, and stay on this south-trending route until it dead-ends at the paved Needles/Newspaper Rock road (UT-211). This section of road may be more sandy than the previous sections. If you have more time, you can explore other dirt and paved roads that lead to amazing clifftop viewpoints of Canyonlands, like Needles Overlook, Anticline Overlook, and Hatch Point.
