Coyote Canyon Rock Crawling Area
The Coyote Canyon motorized route is an extreme trail specifically designated for rock-crawler type vehicles only. The route is one-way up a small canyon and down another. Although the route is only 0.65 miles long, it can easily take all day to navigate with refrigerator-sized boulders that must be traversed. Only heavily modified 4WD vehicles can make it through. This route provides rock-crawler enthusiasts an opportunity to challenge both their vehicles and skills in a unique setting. ATV’s, UTV’s, and motorcyles are not allowed.
Coyote Canyon is located approximately 13 miles south of Moab off the Black Ridge Road. A trailer parking area is located to the right at the State Route 191/Black Ridge Road junction. Access to Coyote Canyon is 1.5 miles from the parking area on the Black Ridge Road.
Motorized use of Coyote Canyon is only allowed with a permit. Permits are available for Fridays and Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., February 16 to November 30 with one permitted group per day and a maximum of seven vehicles per group. Permits must be obtained online and become available two months in advance on a rolling daily window.
