This trail is a 3 mile connector to the Hidden Valley Trail. The trail follows a primitive slickrock road and has good views of the Colorado River, the Moab Valley, and the sandstone fins of the Behind the Rocks area.
From the parking area, follow the 4-wheel-drive vehicle route up the slickrock ramps of Kayenta sandstone. After about 1.4 miles, the route reaches a viewpoint of the Moab Valley. Follow the vehicle route south and then down through a slickrock area located between two large domes of Navajo sandstone. At the base of the slickrock area, the route continues along a wash bottom and then up a large sand hill. From the top of the sand hill, the route branches twice to the left. The first spur on the left leads to a view point high above Spanish Valley. The second spur route ends after 200 yards at another view point. Ahead to the south, the view is dominated by a long ridge of massive sandstone fins. From the intersection, the main route drops down into a wash and then climbs in an easterly direction to its terminus just below the pass to Hidden Valley.
The Moab Rim route is a shared use trail. You may encounter jeeps, mountain bikes, dirt bikes or ATV's on the route.
Trail length: 3 miles
