Utah GPS Tracks

The Utah GPS Tracks have moved to ADVENTR.co! I have fixed the broken links and they should all be working now. You can find them here:

    So I was comparing both of our behind the rocks trail and noticed that yours is shorter than mine, and now I wonder if I continued on to another trail? Mines located at http://schwarttzy.com/?page_id=175 , also I’m extremely interested in possibly linking your GPX files on my website if that would be cool, and I will be sure to put your name above the files.

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    The track above is only the Behind the Rocks Road….not the trail. I actually have not driven the full Behind the Rocks Trail yet. Once I do, I will add that track here, too.

  • Josh Says:

    Finding your blog was like finding a goldmine! As a local Utah’n who loves to explore, I find great pleasure in all the material you have posted.

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    I’m glad you have found my site useful. I work hard to get as much info as I can up here 🙂

  • Bob Morphew Says:

    Great collection of tracks! When I ride my dualsport motorcycle in AZ,CO or UT I use Charles Well’s Jeep books. I’ve made transparent overlay maps from routes and tracks for my Garmin GPS and it’s much better than using actual tracklogs. I’d like to convert your tracks to a map and wondered if you’d be prepared to e-mail me your master file with them all in? I started combining the tracks into one file manually but it’s obviously tedious. I’d give you the finished maps.
    Thanks. Bob

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    Bob, do you need the file in GPX?

  • Sean Says:

    Excellent job!! My friends and I explore all of the same areas every Spring and Fall. Your tracks are going be very helpful.

    I’ll compare notes and see if I can share any with you that I’ve tracked that you don’t have. If I find any I’ll let you know.

    Only thing I can think of that will improve this is if we can take a few photos of the trails and post them either here or maybe on panaramio. Either way, being able to see some of the obstacles/general road appearance before getting there would be helpful.

    Thanks again for all of your hard work!

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    Thanks for your feedback. As far as the additional info about each trail goes, my ultimate goal is to get a page up about most of the trails with more detailed information about each. I started out by only posting up trails with this page ready to go, but I just could not keep up. Since I always had requests for different GPS tracks, I figured I would just post up the tracks for now, and finish the detailed information pages later. If you notice, there are a few trails on that page where you can click on the name, which will take you to the detailed information, but those are currently in the minority…

    It’s hard to keep the information updated when I head out exploring almost every weekend 🙂

  • Bob Morphew Says:

    I can use either a GPX or a Mapsource GDB file. The GDB is a lot smaller making it somewhat better for e-mailing (one of the tracklog files I got from another rider was 20MB in GPX and 2.9MB in GDB). I can do maps for both UT and CO (plus any others you may have but not posted).

    Do you have a preference as to how you’d like to see these tracks displayed on the GPS map? I can customize them to any colour(s), either plain, dashed, solid colour, 2-colour with borders, etc.


  • Josh Says:

    I’ll be riding my dual sport motorcycle from Blanding to Needles Outpost in a couple of weeks. I was wondering if you could suggest a nice 4WD or 2WD route from Blanding to Needles outpost that wouldn’t require me to obtain a permit? I would like to dabble in Beef Basin is possible. Thanks for your time.

  • Charles B. Says:

    Thanks for all your work in posting up this info! It really is one of the best resources for a 4×4 driver in Utah and CO. I used your Kokopelli track and it saved my ass a few times on that trail!

    Thanks for all the tracks. I’m using it as we speak to plan a trip for next week. Stop by and say hello if you find yourself this way.

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    Thanks Gunn-IT….I’m glad they are useful to you 🙂 I’ll probably be heading down towards the area the first week in October….but probably won’t make it as far south as Lees Ferry

  • LaPorte Says:

    When i found you web site I said the same thing Josh said. This is a Goldmine of information. Thanks for your efforts.

  • 40-Mile Desert Rat Says:

    Thanks for the effort on the tracks. The very best source
    that I’ve seen for Utah. Cheers, Bruce

  • Steve Randle Says:

    I’ve used your trail guide for our last two
    spring ATV treks to Moab, and now I’m getting warmed up for this Spring. Thanks for this great website. But now when I click on several of the tracks in the La Sal Mountains area I’m getting an “ID doesn’t exist” message. Am I doing something wrong, or do the IDs in fact not exist?

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    Hmmm…I just checked it out and there appears to be a problem with the database…..I’ll see if I can fix it

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    I’ve looked into it and it’s going to take me a while to get fixed up again. Apparently it has been broken for a while and my backups don’t go back far enough to easily restore it. I am going to have to manually fix the database when I have a chance.

  • Erik Says:

    All I can say is UNBELIEVEABLE, just came across your site, Thanks for putting this info together, would have been handy when we were in Moab last summer.
    Maybe I’ll have to come back this summer and check some more of the area out.
    Thanks a bunch for all the work

  • Mike Says:

    Great site! That is an impressive list of trails you have done! If you don’t mind, is there any way you can email me the master list of all of these trails in GPX format?

    Thanks so much!

  • Cumhur Says:

    Very usefull collection of tracks but I’m getting on most of the GPX links “This ID doesn’t exist!” (especially in Moab area).

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    I have started to fix the links above that are broken. It’s going to take me a while since there are a lot, so please be patient 🙂

  • Khaiwi Says:

    Thank you so much for the comprehensive site with trail details. I am planning a first time visit to Moab early May 2011 (travelling from abroad)then rent a Jeep and do some trails. I found your site like a treasure to me. Awaiting till you fix the links of Moab gpx files.
    Additionally, any information and recommendations from you or Moab locals is highly appreciated.

  • Roger Scott Says:

    Got your link off my son’s post on Colorado 4×4. Appreciate all the Google Earth Trax! I make the mecca from Northern Indiana to Moab every May to wheel with my son (Colorado) and my bro (Missouri). If you get a minute, I’d appreciate if you could email me your google earth trax for Hellroaring Rim (Moab | Island Area)


    Great site! Thanks again for all the work!

  • tom Says:

    Awesome site. Is there anyway you could email me the track for Davis Canyon (to the park boundary). I will be heading in there with my kids next week. I am kind of wimpy off road driver & dont want to leave anything to chance.

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    Just an update…..I’m still working on fixing the links on this page. It’s a slow process, but I’m trying to get a bit done each day. So far I have started at the top and updated them all through the Dolores Triangle area

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    Got a bunch more updated this afternoon….all the way through Sand Flats Recreation Area are updated and working. Maybe I’ll finish the rest this evening if I am feeling up to it….

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    Great news! Since I actually stayed home today (for once) I was able to finish fixing all of the links on this page. They should all be working again! If you find any issues, please let me know so that I can resolve them.

    Now I will start working on the Colorado page, and then I will see about adding new tracks here again 🙂

  • Khaiwi Says:

    Thank you so much dude,,,,, Appreciate sharing this information.

    Happy off roading

  • Glenn Says:

    Awesome site. Having only been to Moab once (last year), I have been thoroughly enjoying reading through your reports and checking out the trails. Absolutely top notch work you’ve done.

    Although I’m not going to be travelling with a jeep this May/June, I would like to explore the area starting from Moab up to Green River on my KLR650 and would love suggestions for a route between the two. Crystal Geyser trail? Any combo of trails that when put together would get me from Moab to Green River in/for a day? Again thanks for the great site.

  • IntrepidXJ Says:

    The Crystal Geyser Trail would be a good one. To stay off the pavement as much as possible, you could start on the Gemini Bridges Road or Long Canyon near Moab to reach UT 313. From ther eyou could hop on the Spring Canyon Bottom Road and take it to the Dubinky Well Road, which will bring to you to the Rainbow Rocks Trail and then Crystal Geyser. This route could easily be done in a day in a Jeep, so you should have no issues on your KLR650. If you have extra time, there’s plenty to do along the way….like the short spur to Secret Spire or the Dellenbaugh Tunnel.

  • Glenn Says:

    Thanks for the suggestions…I’ve done the Long Canyon and Gemini Bridges trails last year. Using them as a jump off is a great idea, and I’ll keep reviewing your site for link up ideas to Crystal Geyser and maybe even the Sand Dunes. Again thanks, and great work.

  • marc Says:

    Could you direct me to a source of gps markers fir little river mesa and gooseberry mesa?

  • Tommy Says:

    Thank you so much for the hard work you’ve put into this database. We are heading to Moab from Canada, and having your gps markers will help us make the most of our short trip.

  • Jon Says:

    What a fantastic resource. Thanks for all you have done, and thanks for your efforts in getting all the links fixed and working.

  • Mark Newby Says:

    Awesome effort, will be learning from this collection for a long time (Motorcycle rider – dirt). If you would like to discuss taking this to the level of a Geographic Information System (GIS), please write. Some might benefit from having this in Shapefile (.shp) format. Thank you, Mark

  • Don Gilmore Says:

    Intrepid: I would love to be able to put your GPS and Google Earth Tracks on our site under a hiking heading. I would also like to use your avatar for acknowledgement. This would be a great resource and could even act as a back-up for you. We’d add a link to your Blog also.
    Please let me know if this feasible? Please contact me and let me know if this possible?
    Thank you

    Thanks for this fantastic resource. You’re helping in a big way to plan a trip to the Moab and San Rafael Swell areas to do photography.

  • Rainer Grosskopf Says:

    You did a great job collecting all these tracks. I was desperately looking for Marlboro Point, because I saw lots of excellent sunrise shots. I was so happy to find your track – thanks.

  • Geert Says:

    Wow, my family and I (from Belgium) are going to explore GSE (and the wave too) Sure we ‘re going to use your files !!
    Thanks a lot!
    You have a great hobby!

  • Shane Harless Says:

    Wow! Unbelievable! Thank you so much for posting these. I can’t wait to see these trails in person!

  • Stuart Patton Says:

    A group of 6 hard core Canadian dual sport riders is planning a trip to Moab next September, and I’m trying to establish some routes for 5 days of different trails. We’re hoping to ride mostly single track if possible, but we will all have street legal machines, so we can go on some pavement and double track where necessary. I’ve downloaded all of the tracks that you have provided (MANY THANKS!!!!!) and have been viewing them in Google Earth one by one to try and put together some tracks. Any suggestions for good single tracks would be greatly appreciated, as there is so much to sift through, and it’s pretty tough to tell from Google Earth whether or not a track is a single track or not. We are wanting to ride between 150 and 250 miles per day, depending on how tough and slow-going the trail gets.

    Thanks again for making this public! Great work!

  • Randy Langstraat Says:

    Stuart- Any track you find on my site is going to be double track since they were all driven in one of my Jeeps. I do not have a bike, so I am not very familiar with much of the single track routes out there.
