Location: Arches National Park, Moab, UT
Terrain: Desert, Sand, Wash
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate

reaming of future overlanding trips? Eye of the Whale Arch Trail is one of the only off-road 4x4 trails in Arches National Park. The park recommends you drive this route from north to south as there are a few steep sections with deep sand. The trail is also occasionally closed due to washouts so make sure to check ahead before your trip. On this one way route you will see the Eye of the Whale Arch (pictured below) and the Anniversary Arch. If you are looking for a way to explore Arches National Park with avoiding the crowds this is the perfect trail.

Joining us this month to tell us about their trip to Mojave Road Trail, Courtney C took her Tacoma to this trail and shared his story with us.

How'd You Get Into Overlanding?

I started building my truck up last summer to go camping more and get to more remote locations.

Favorite Cali Raised LED Product:

I currently have Low Profile LED Ditch Light Combo with side projecting lights, Rock Sliders, Hidden Bumper Light Bar, Bed Stiffeners, and the Roof Rack with 360 lighting. I started buying Cali Raised because they (are) quality and prices were great, couple that with fast shipping and amazing customer service and you can’t go wrong.

Favorite Trip?

My favorite trip so far was a father-son trip for 5 days last summer. I took him to a spot I used to go to every summer as a kid with my parents in Durango and Silverton, Colorado.

BucketList Trip?

No bucket list trails; my goal is to see as much of the world as I can!

Until next time! At Cali Raised LED, we not only want to encourage riders to try something new, (with all the proper precautions of course!) but also to not be too shy when it comes to checking out trails that they may not have thought possible. It's in our very slogan, "Rise Up and Seek Adventure." We really mean it.

Thank you to @teksou for sharing your story with us.

If you haven't figured it out yet, we've been featuring a trail or national park or other must see location each month of the year, and sometimes we are lucky enough to find other off-roaders who have been there. They are kind enough to share their experience and their expertise. Want to be featured? Have a trail you think we should feature? Submit your photos and story to partners@caliraisedled.com to be considered!

  • This was an awesome Blog as I love to go camping and visit national parks. I just got my 2021 TRD 4×4 Tacoma last week and excited to start modifying it.
