Ten Mile Point, Moab, UT

Share Me:

It was our last day in Moab, so that we did not want to do a more difficult trip. Our vehicle had a damaged suspension, so that we wanted to avoid any rock crawling.

We are starting from Moab on US191 towards I70. At 12S60969X 428942X (UTM/NAD27) we are leaving US191 to the left to drive along Blue Hills Road. If it is wet, it is not possible to drive Bue Hills Road. This should be kept in mind.

The trail was somehow a little bit rough.

We are passing the turnoff to Bartlett Wash and Hidden Canyon and soon we see the turnoff towards Dubinky Well Road to the left. At 12S59977X 429334X we are using the right trail. To the left Levi Well Road continues. Along the way one can have absolute scenic views:

At 12S59636X 429514X we are crossing Thompson Wash and are reaching soon a turnoff to the left, which leads us to Ten Mile Point. If one continues straight, he will meet Ruby Ranch Road, which leads to I-70 (Ruby Ranch Exit).

After turning left, the color changes.

The trail is forking again here and we are taking the left path to stop at a drill hole. The trail is again forking here and both routes lead to the rim above the Green River.

South of Ten Mile Canyon is another view point, which is called “The Very End” . Details about the route to this viewpoint one can find in our trail description.

Unfortunately I did not have enough batteries with me for my camera, so that we had to use our emergency camera’, which doesn´t provide good picture quality.

Here we are now on the second trail, which comes from the drill hole. This trail is much easier, then the other one. If you are watching carefully, you can find a foot path, which is marked with cairns and leads to the rim of Ten Mile Canyon exit.

And here is an overview of the area, we visited:

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.
