A thrilling drive of steep climbs and heart-pounding descents with the La Sal Mountains providing a beautiful backdrop. Part one, on the south side of Sand Flats Road, is very scenic and steep but the fins are less dramatic. Part two, on the north side, starts gradually but ends with a rollercoaster ride you’ll never forget. This route duplicates that driven during the Easter Jeep Safari with the exception of one short out-and-back side trip. Dominated by undulating slickrock with intervals of soft sand and a few rocky sections. Excellent traction on dry slickrock permits vehicles in low gear to ascend and descend extremely steep sections of dry slickrock. Be more careful under wet conditions. Approach steep sections head-on rather than sideways across the hill. Stock vehicles should have good articulation, high ground clearance, and adequate front and rear approach angles.
