Trail shared by Nick Wilder

A classic beginner run with slickrock and views of Arches National Park.

Description

You can start right at Highway 191, but the first 2.8 miles are easy to drive for passenger cars, and this section of road is not too interesting, so it's better to start from the Klondike Buff parking area, 2.8 miles along this road.

From here, the first section is very popular as it's the main access for all of the Klondike trails. Use a variation that parallels the road to the west and is a little less sandy than the main road,

Where the Klondike trails start, you'll take a right to continue on a slightly bumpier road until you hit an enormous section of slickrock. You might find dinosaur prints if you're lucky.

Continue until you get to the border of Arches National Park, continue by a short ways to a great viewpoint of Arches National Park and the La Sal mountains.
