Really nice trail that lets you bypass some paved roads. Coming out of Lake Powell make sure you have a full tank as there isn't anything till the end of the trial. Really beautiful scenery, sometimes you wonder if your still on earth. Good road for the first few miles then you need a stock 4x4 to get through the rest. We did see a Buick sedan farther up but he has broken something and was waiting for a tow truck. The double arch was pretty amazing
