Pritchett Canyon

  • Duration: 8 Hours

  • Difficulty: Stage 4

  • Price: $500 per driver / $400 per passenger

Pritchett Canyon is considered on of the toughest trails in Moab, especially for a UTV. But it is one of the few trails that truly has it all; picturesque views, boulder fields, fast desert sections, sand dunes, and most importantly extremely technical rock crawling. Rated 9 by the Red Rock 4-Wheelers, be prepared to winch, stack rocks, and follow very careful tire placement. Roll overs, broken axles, and bent suspension components are a high risk on this trail.

The trail begins off of Kane Creek road. As you begin making your way up along the creek bottom, the towering canyon begin to narrow as you make your way along the trail. These first four miles up through the canyon are the most challenging, with Chewy, Rocker Knocker, Axle Hill, and Rockpile testing your driving skills. At the top of Yellow Hill, take a break as your hard work is rewarded by the vast landscape of the valley below. As you set out on your last fourteen miles of relatively east driving along the Behind the Rocks route, enjoy the views of arches, wind caves, and sand dunes.
