Grand County, Utah

Trail Type: Straight Through
Nearby Towns: Moab
Season: Year Round
This isn't really a trail. It is a single hill made out of rock, right next to the Moab dump. It's wide so there are a million different lines. Every line is difficult and some are very close to impossible.
Though a stock 4x4 vehicle could make it up the hill with some momentum, it takes a modified vehicle and a good line to make it up to the top safely. Do not attempt this hill unless you are prepared for the possibility of rolling your vehicle many times if you slip off of your line in a dangerous way. Vehicles of all sizes and all types have fallen off of this hill to the ravine below it.
This Hill is very popular during "Big Saturday," the Saturday during the Easter Jeep Safari. It is famous for many roll-overs and carnage, drawing large crowds and many takers.
