Little Moab Off-Road Recreation Area Information

Little Moab is located just West of the Southern tip of Utah Lake. It got it's name from the rockcrawling areas that are here. There is basically one larger area, and 2 smaller areas for rockcrawlers to play on.

These areas are indicated by the light shading on the map(zoom in for detail). Although somewhat small, they do offer a bit of a challenge and can keep one entertained if you can be creative in the lines you choose. 4x4 clubs etc. often come out to test their rigs before a bigger trip, or just to get out for a quick trip. The rockcrawling is only focused basically in these 3 small areas, but with many other trails surrounding these areas, it's a fun place to get out for a weekend campout with dirt bikes, atv's etc. as well. For detailed directions from your location, click the "Directions" link on the map below. or follow your gps to 40.063252,-112.040044. The best time to visit the Little Moab Area is the Spring or Fall. There are a number of open mines in the area, so be careful..especially if you chose to explore any of them.

Also identified on the map by the flag is the location of the old Nutty Putty Cave Entrance. Pictured below, the entrance was sealed due to a fatal accident in the cave. We were able to go into the cave before this happened and knew of the inherent danger. It is sad to see it sealed, but worse to think of the life lost here and also the hours put in with many rescue efforts including and beyond this one.
