San Rafael Swell

AKA: San Rafael Bridge Campground, San Rafael Swell, Book Cliffs And San Rafael Swell, Book Cliffs Recreation Area, Temple Mountain Trail Area, Five Miles of Hell, Dick Brass Trail System, 5MOH, Moab, Emery County, San Rafael Swe

Summary


This popular area consists of two separate trail systems. The southern area known as Temple Mountain is well suited for ATV riders and consists mostly of sandy washes and scenic jeep trails of low to moderate difficulty. The Five Miles of Hell trail to the north is actually 9.6 miles long and open only to dirt bikes and mountain bikes. This epic trail features narrow canyons, sharp rock climbs, off camber rock face turns, and pockets of fine sand so it is recommended for experienced riders only. There are three 'bailout' trails as well but routes are often marked only by a dash of white paint on the rocks so it's easy to lose the trail temporarily. Carry some water, snacks, first aid, spare levers and basic tools because this trail is no joke.
