"This short spur trail from Southeast #2: White Rim Trail gives access to the Moses hiking trail and to trails up Taylor Canyon. The Moses and Zeus rocks, large Entrada sandstone formations that are supposed to resemble stooping figures of the prophet and the god, are prominent at the end of the trail, high on the cliff to the north. Special Attractions: Interesting spur trail to complement White Rim Trail; Moses and Zeus rocks; Access to hiking trails up Taylor Canyon. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."
