Moab Easter Jeep Safari

Easter Jeep Safari runs April 8-16 in Moab. This is a major area event and so the town will be bustling with activity. Many hotels and campgrounds will be filled to capacity.

The event consists of trail rides, mostly day-long trips, departing from Moab throughout the week. It is hosted by Red Rock 4-Wheelers, Moab’s local four-wheel drive club. Participants provide their own vehicles, food and non-alcoholic beverages for the trips. The club officially runs approximately 9 different trails every day. On "Big Saturday," some 30 groups will line up in downtown Moab before heading off in every direction to ride 30 different trails.

Pre-registration has concluded but there may be last-minute openings for some rides. Check at the at the registration desk at the Spanish Trail Arena if you are interested in participating.

Many people come to Moab at this time to enjoy the festive atmosphere, but choose not to participate in organized rides. Some stay in town, others go hiking or biking, while some 4X4 enthusiasts head on to ride on their own. All of those activities are fine as long as participants obey applicable regulations.

People sometimes get into trouble driving into areas not open for vehicle travel, and also driving while intoxicated. The extremely rugged terrain around Moab makes both those activities highly dangerous.
