On Easter Weekend, the Western Slope 4 Wheelers Club in conjunction with Montrose County hosted a booth at Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. Easter Jeep Safari is one of the largest jeep gatherings in the United States and hosting a booth was a great way to promote the trail with stunning scenery that spans 160 miles from Western Montrose County all the way to Moab.
Rimrocker Trail provides 4WD, OHV, and bicycle access through redrock canyons, winding rivers, desert vistas, and alpine forests. While some of the higher elevation portions of Rimrocker are still closed, it is expected that those sections should be ready to travel by Memorial Day. Trail signage is continually being added. Downloadable GPS route information is available online. Look for available updates in July.
The Western Slope 4 Wheelers is a group of family oriented off-road enthusiasts who not only enjoy 4-wheeling but also work hard to protect 4-wheeling rights on public lands. The club meets monthly and participates in a variety of events.
During Easter Jeep Safari, club members met over 1200 people, many of whom were excited to learn more about the “New Trail”. According to Richard Bell, a member of the club, many folks “…added the Rimrocker Trail to their bucket list of trails to run. One couple from Arkansas was so excited about running it, they were already making plans to return, possibly as early as this summer!” You can learn more about the WesternSlope 4 Wheeler Club at http://ws4w.com/.
