This trail loops around in the San Rafael Swell to the south of I-70. It follows the path of two canyons: the gentle Kimball Draw and the narrow, twisting Cat Canyon. The most challenging part of the trail is the very deep, loose sand near the western end of the trail just south of I-70. This section can be several miles long and makes the trail suitable only for 4WD vehicles. It may be necessary to lower tire pressures to avoid getting stuck. Special Attractions: Remote route that travels along two canyons; Rockhounding for selenite in Kimball Draw; Access to a network of 4WD trails. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.
