Dreaming 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 Calcite Mine Trail, Kyle P took her Tacoma to this trail and shared his story with us.

Favorite Overlanding Trip?

I have made two trips to Las Vegas and one trip to Barstow, CA and Barstow was my favorite. It was a three-day trip and was my first "desert trip". I was able to jump the truck for the first time, and got all four tires off the ground. I love desert trips because I am all about going as fast as possible and seeing what the truck can do.

Favorite Cali Raised LED Product:

I use the Lower Bumper Hidden Light Bar and Amber Fog Light Pods the most because it cuts through the dust well with the amber, but still lights up the road enough with the white bar.

How'd You Get Into Overlanding?

Initially, I bought my truck for other hobbies and using the bed to haul things. The rig then morphed into a complete off-road truck that has overlanding capabilities with all the comforts of a luxury vehicle.

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 to be considered!
