Spring Canyon Point Road, Moab, UT

Share Me:


In march, 2015 we had some time left and thought, we will do some easy run that day. It has been a long time, since we last drove Spring Canyon Point Rd. to the end. I also had some information about some side roads, which we wanted to explore. One is a trail, located between the Dellenbaugh Tunnel turn off and Secret Spire, called the Amphietheater Trail. The other one is a small side step, shortly before Spring Canyon Point. That one is, according to an old trail book, the best overlook point on the Green River. We also passed the side trail to Cliffhanger Arch. All other side roads, we wanted to explore, had been either no more existing or closed.

Hi, my name is Christian. Since years, my wife and me are spending our vacation in the southwest of the USA. At the beginning, we had been visiting a lot of national parks, but after some time, we started to explore also areas off pavement. We started with the Coyote Buttes South region and White Pocket in the Vermilion Cliffs NM. Over years, we explored almost the complete Vermilion Cliffs NM and visited also a lot of other areas in Arizona, California, Nevada and Utah. Especially the Moab area and the San Rafael Swell are our favorites. But also the Rubicon trail in the High Sierras was very impressing. In 2015, we had been the first time in the Kingman, AZ area. There are a lot of outstanding 4WD trails, like Sleeping Princess or Moss Wash. This type of trails has a high difficulty rating and one should have the right vehicle and good driving skills to tackle this type of trails. As I did not find any good source of information about the trails, we planned to drive at the beginning of our ‘offroad adventures’, I started to create this website. I hope, that it has some use for visitors and gives some kind of information and also inspiration.

Eardley Canyon/Straight Wash, San Rafael Swell, UT

As we had to cancel our planned trip to Cane Wash, due to a service for our Jeep, we thought about to visit Eardley Canyon. Some time ago, we read Rolfs description of Ernie Canyon and decided to visit the neighbour canyon.

Without having any detailed information we started from Green River, UT on I-70 until we reached the exit to UT-24. We follow UT-24 towards Hanksville. At 12S 54798X 429013X (UTM/NAD27) we are turning right on a dirt road, which leads towards the Reef. The following picture shows the turnoff.
