White Rim Trail Trip Report


Earlier this month we ran White Rim trail in Canyonlands NP. We were fortunate enough to get a cold front storm come in that dumped some snow on the ground transforming this already beautiful place into a stunning winter wonderland. In my opinion, we couldn't of had any better weather. We also had the pleasure of having Gooseberry with us in his SMB.

Happy Holidays from the Duo!

Re: White Rim Trail Trip Report

Great trip report. What are your thoughts about doing the route with a Sprinter, non 4X4?

Re: White Rim Trail Trip Report

I bet 90% would not be a issue depending on ground clearance but that 10% might be bad.

This is one spot that had my nerves going. four wheel drive is a nice security as this was pretty steep with a pitch up and a right turn.

Re: White Rim Trail Trip Report

Gooseberry had his GoPro going the entire way. I just got a chance to assemble and edit the timelapse stills.

Enjoy..
