newest 4WD club was formed in February 2005. The club’s
sixteen charter members came together primarily to work on
land use issues and to promote fun and responsible four-wheel
drive recreation. A major reason for existing is to provide
a common organization through which members can promote the
pastime of 4-wheeling to the community and to other enthusiasts.
Projects such as trail maintenance and restoration, community
service, and effective communication with other 4-wheel drive
organizations and government land-use agencies are additional
The club has been very active since their inception and has already taken
a pro active role in the following activities;
Hell’s Revenge Jeep Trail- Moab
Friends-For-Wheelin’ helped Sand Flats Recreation
Team and the BLM in the construction of buck- and-rail
fencing along the popular Hell’s Revenge trail.
The fencing was placed to keep trail users from damaging
fragile soils and vegetation in the vicinity of the “Escalator” and “Gates
of Hell” obstacles. By installing and maintaining
these fences, they hope to keep the privilege of enjoying
these world-class obstacles for years to come.
Pritchett Canyon Jeep Trail - Pritchett
Canyon trail is a beautiful route that has been popular for
many years with motorized users, as well as mountain bikers,
equestrians, and hikers. Its many difficult obstacles have
made it one of the Moab area’s premier “extreme” 4x4
Club trips are usually scheduled through a local e-mail
list, and are open anyone who would like to come. We try
to get out at least a couple of times each month, and have
run a wide variety of trails Some recent runs include scenic,
relatively easy trails such as Hellroaring Canyon to more
difficult trips such as Pritchett Canyon and Moab Rim.
Many of our runs include a hike for those that want to
stretch their legs a bit. In the future, we hope to expand
our boundaries a bit to explore other great Southern Utah
areas such as the San Rafael Swell, Hotel Rock, and Hole
in the Rock.

the trail for all user groups. We perform trail maintenance,
signing, and restoration work. When traveling this (or
any other) trail, please remember to stay on the trail

encouraged to bring their dogs.

community events and benefits will be added to the clubs activities as
