Coyote Canyon Rock Crawling Area

Bureau of Land Management, Utah.

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, and although it is only 0.65 miles long can easily take all day to navigate as refrigerator-sized boulders must be traversed. Only HEAVILY modified vehicles can make it through. This route provides rock crawler enthusiasts an opportunity to challenge both their rigs and skills in a unique setting.

The Coyote Canyon Rock Crawler Route is a limited use area. Users are required to obtain a permit prior to their trip. The Moab Field Office maintains a permit and registration system through for the use of Coyote Canyon for Fridays and Saturdays only from February 16-November 30th. Reservations may be obtained two months in advance on a rolling daily window.
