  • Full description
    Discover the rugged beauty and ancient legends of Canyonlands National Park on a 4WD tour from Moab. Go off-roading in a sturdy Jeep to reach the Island in the Sky district and other remote areas, where the Colorado River slices through steep ravines and ancient Pueblo rock art decorates the sandstone cliffs. Hold on tight as your driver and guide navigates the switchbacks of Shafer Trail, and fill your camera roll with amazing perspective shots of the red-rock canyons.
    The Shafer Trail at the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands National Park is an iconic road that descends 1,500 feet (457 m) through a colorful, massive sandstone cliff. Its function has changed through the years; from a route made by Native Americans to access resources on the mesa top, to a trail for sheep herders moving flocks to better foraging in winter time, and then a road for trucks moving loads of uranium from the backcountry to market. Today, the Shafer Trail is road for seeking the experience of a lifetime.
