“Famous Mountain Biking”
The Sand Flats Recreation Area (SFRA) near Moab, Utah is a nationally significant public lands treasure at the heart of the Colorado Plateau. A high plain of slick rock domes, bowls and fins, it rises in the east to meet the colorful mesas and nearly 13,000 foot peaks of the La Sal Mountains. Bordering the area on the north and south are the canyons of the Negro Bill and Mill Creek Wilderness Study Areas. Further north lies the deep gorge of the Colorado River and Arches National Park. Sand Flats’ famous Slickrock and Porcupine Rim bike trails and almost 40 miles of jeep trails are world-renowned for their combination of challenge and awesome scenery. Sand Flats is also popular for camping. Over 100,000 visitors enjoy this 9,000 acre recreation area annually. The Sand Flats Recreation Area is managed through a unique partnership between Grand County and the Bureau of Land Management. In 1995 this area was developed through the collaborative efforts of Ameri-corps, the Bureau of Land Management, Grand County and the Moab community.
Nothing quite like Moab and the Sand Flats ares. Whether you are rock crawling in a Jeep, visiting Arches National Park, riding or hiking, it's one of the most amazing places on Earth.
Awesome place to camp! Really cool little alcoves in the rocks all over the place to block the wind. We came here in the spring for a mountain bike trip and loved it. We also did a UTV trip on the Hell's Revenge Trail that was definitely worth the money. It does get windy at Sand Flats and, as the namesake goes, the sand blows too. Most of the camping here is cheap and close to Moab.
This is the site of the famous Hells Revenge Jeep trail, as well as a few others. There is a small fee to get in, which gets you a 24hr pass. I think longer passes are available too. As a result there are some basic facilities near the entrance. Hells Revenge is a lot of fun!
