Land of Standing Rocks Professional Review and Guide

"Although the end of this road is only 51 miles from a paved highway it can take as much as 6 hours of driving to get there. The first 34 miles, from Highway 95 near Hite to Waterhole Flat, can usually be driven by almost any vehicle, but beyond that point the road is definitely for 4WD vehicles only. You will probably be stopping frequently to get out and study the road before venturing ahead with your jeep.

If you don't own a 4WD vehicle this can be an interesting alternative to the trip described below. Just don?t try it in a low-clearance passenger car and don't attempt to do the trip in reverse. It is probably impossible to get up the Flint Trail with anything less than 4WD. Road conditions: There is a particularly rough section of road beginning just north of Waterhole Flat where the route crosses the upper reaches of Teapot Canyon. If you don't have a 4WD vehicle with high clearance you won't get beyond this point. Pickup trucks with a long wheel base may also have some difficulty."
