Hell's Revenge


Hell's Revenge

Hell’s Revenge consists of a six and one half mile roller coaster ride across the slickrock fins east of the town of Moab. It is extremely difficult, and recommended only for very experienced drivers with advanced equipment.

Hells Revenge Jeep Trail


Route Directions: From the center of Moab, travel east toward the Slickrock Trail (on the Sand Flats Road) for two miles. The entrance to Hell’s Revenge is just past the entrance station to the Sand Flats Recreation Area (entrance fee required). Travel on the route is one way (you will exit near Lion’s Back). As part of your entrance fee to Sand Flats, you will receive a visitor guide which includes a mileage log to the Hell’s Revenge trail.

Hell’s Revenge is clearly marked. Be sure to follow the yellow flame symbols painted on the rock. Hell’s Revenge crosses the Slickrock Trail as well as Search and Rescue routes for the Slickrock Trail. Do not get confused; stay on the Hell’s Revenge Trail.

Hell’s Revenge includes several optional obstacles such as the Escalator and the Tip Over Challenge. If you choose to watch other vehicles attempt these obstacles, please park in a way that does not destroy vegetation. In addition, please stay out of potholes as the water is very important to wildlife.

Hell’s Revenge exits south of the Sand Flats Entrance Station on the paved Sand Flats Road. Additional information can be found on the Sand Flats Recreation Area website.
