Fins & Things Tour – $245 per vehicle

“Fins” are the Navajo Sandstone slickrock formations northeast of Moab, and the “Things” are what remains as the fins erode. The fins started as wind-blown sand dunes some 200 million years ago, they got cemented into sandstone, and they are now going full circle back to sand blowing in the wind. The trail is reached via the Sand Flats Road, and the territory it covers is the rolling country east of the Hell’s Revenge trail and between Negro Bill Canyon and North Fork of Mill Creek Canyon. There are a few sudden and steep climbs on and off the slickrock that can be difficult for vehicles with long overhangs. Any tire tread will do on the slickrock, but the clearance added by tall tires is always an advantage, while an aggressive tread helps in the sand. Approximate mileages 25 total, 13 off highway.

Scenery

The views near and far are exceptionally scenic. The Navajo mounds and fins are themselves interesting, and the deep canyon system of Negro Bill adds a special dimension. Farther to the east are the red mesa rims at the base of the snow-covered La Sal Mountains.

Surface

Most of the travel time is on slickrock or very sandy dirt. Some of the climbs are aggravated by a loose sand approach.

Trail Details

This trip is similar to a roller coaster ride that goes on all day. “Frenchies Fin” and Kenny’s Climb are about as steep as we can do.

Seating

Each vehicle can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. If you have a larger group call us in advance to arrange a third row seat ($25 per person).

Ride Along Tour in Our Highly Customized Jeep

Our Ride-Along tour is our most convenient adventure experience because you can just show up to town and get into our highly customized $100,000 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock edition vehicle and let our professional tour guide escort you through the Moab area wilderness. For those of you who are visiting and want to get into the backcountry without renting a 4×4, or you own a 4×4 but traveled so far that bringing your vehicle was overly burdensome, then this tour will get you into the gorgeous Moab experience ASAP. The 4 person limit includes 2 average sized adults and 2 children.

Follow Along Tour in Your Jeep

If you bring your own 4×4 vehicle to Moab, or you have rented a 4×4 but are new to the Moab experience, our Follow Along tour is a great start for maximizing your time while here on vacation. We will provide you with an exciting introductory tour of the greater Moab sphere of influence without any time wasted. The tour experience is the same as the Ride-Along, but you get the satisfaction of driving the the trail yourself. For in-vehicle group communications we provide your vehicle a CB radio that has been tested and tuned so as we can stay in contact with us while en-route.
