White Rim Trail

I'm leaving on April 18 for a week in the Moab area, and will be driving the White Rim trail through Canyonlands NP, as well as seeing Arches and the adjoining area. The trail is a 100 mile dirt, gravel and sand route through some spectacular scenery. See you there!

Might be heading to Moab around the first week of June.

Let us know if you find any good camping spots (BLM,etc).

Anyone else know of some good spots to camp in Moab?

There is more camping around Moab than anywhere else I've seen. Dozens, if not hundreds of trails in every direction, with camping anywhere. The NP sites fill up and often require reservations. That's why I got a SMB. Lots of BLMN roads everywhere. Good maps available in most stores there. You can't go wrong.

I'm working on some images to be posted here soon....

There are plenty of good choices. I ended up using the BLM somewhat developed sites (running water, pit toilets) along the Colorado River (a road parallels (Utah 128) the Colorado on the Moab side of the river). A number of the trails have camping opportunities. Arches NP CG filled very early every.

A good trail book for the area is Guide to Moab, UT Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails (Paperback) by Charles A. Wells.

Great pictures!

That whole area (Canyonlands, Arches, Zion, Bryce) are all on our must do list however we need to work around the school breaks and it seems to get pretty hot in the summer

Thanks for posting.
