Sevenmile Rim Jeep Trail

Route Description: Although this route has been marked by the Red Rock Four Wheelers Jeep Club, in coordination with the BLM, a good map and/or guidebook is essential. Markings can fade and signs have been known to disappear. Be prepared to find your own way. Go nine miles north from Moab on U.S. 191. Just across from the Archview Campground (north of Utah Highway 313), turn west to begin the route. Travel a well maintained road for four miles from U.S. 191, then turn west and start up a series of steep ledges. You will pass a “Sevenmile Rim” sign at this turn.

Follow the marked trail to Uranium Arch. You can avoid a very difficult spot by viewing the arch from above. Continue on toward Monitor and Merrimac Buttes, carefully following the marked route (there are many side roads to ignore). Continuing west from Merrimac Butte, the route crosses on the top of Wipe Out Hill. Those wishing to test their driving abilities and their vehicles may attempt this obstacle. Other drivers will wish to travel south toward Determination Towers, and then exit the area via the Tusher Wash Road.
