The Hell’s Revenge trail is one of my favorites—it’s close to Moab, obstacle rich and provides spectacular views in all directions. Eager to feel slickrock under my tires after a 10-hour haul from New Mexico, this is traditionally the first trail I run after arriving in Moab. Characterized by sand, boulders, ledges, slickrock and steep grades, the trail provides something for every off-road enthusiast. For those looking to tackle the trail’s most challenging obstacles (sans The Escalator) vehicles with the following equipment are strongly recommended at a minimum: Solid rear locker, underbody protection, winch, aggressive approach/departure angles and 33-inch tires. Hell’s Gate, the trail’s most notable obstacle, requires drivers to negotiate a steep V-notch climb for nearly 100 feet. The seven mile long trail is clearly marked by yellow flame symbols. Please use caution as Hell’s Revenge crosses the path of the heavily traveled Slickrock mountain bike trail.
