A rim trail in the far northwestern corner of Rabbit Valley.

Don Leinweber

Description

This trail is open to motorized use.
The Overlook trail is great when combined with Western Mesa, Arch Loop, or Zion Curtain trails.

The best access to the trail is from I70 at the Westwater exit #227 just west of the Colorado, Utah border. 1/4 mile from the exit along Harley Dome Road (BLM 192) take the first left turn onto a doubletrack through a light industrial area. After 1/2 mile the doubletrack forks. Go right and in another 1/2 mile, the road intersects the Kokopelli Trail at another fork.

This is a good place to park if driving a low-clearance vehicle. Go left onto Kokopelli Trail at this fork for another 1/4 mile to another good parking space on the left overlooking the Kokopelli Trail climb from Rabbit Valley. This road ends at a primitive campground on the rim of the mesa. The Overlook trail begins on the left side of the doubletrack about 800' beyond Kokopelli Trail.

From this point Overlook trail is pretty easy to follow: just stay along the rim. The trail works its way south, paralleling Kokopelli Trail for 6 miles to a saddle. At the saddle, a road passes east-west with the east leg descending back into Rabbit Valley and the west leg connecting back to Kokopelli Trail.

South from the saddle, Western Mesa trail continues along the rim, much in the same vein to an overlook. The Arch Loop also has its northern terminus at this saddle.
