Trail shared by F Felix

A 4x4 route that can be fun and rewarding if you can handle the sand.

Need to Know

Make no mistake: Fins & Things is a Jeep route. But so are most of the other trails in Moab, too.

There's not much shade up here. Bring lots of water.

Description

The challenge here is that a few of the rock steps can be pretty big, and the sand pits can be quite abrupt and deep. You need to be very strong to enjoy this Old School ride. You'll have more fun if you come off-season, or after rains have packed the sand down and before the OHVs churn it all up again. But it's a beautiful area that's easy to access; camping abounds here; there are a number of ways to bail out, and the Slickrock Trail is right next door to salvage your day if you just aren't feeling it.

The route straddles the Sand Flats Road, and there generally seems to be less traffic on the north side. The best parts of the route pass along slickrock fins, and the trail also passes several canyoneering/hiking trailheads, including Medieval Chamber and Fins & Things Canyon. You'll need a rope and harness (and some experience) to complete those routes. But hiking in until you have to commit, then returning the way you came is an interesting and fun way to break up your ride and rest up.
