Start Date: 09/12/2019
End Date: December 2019
Location Description: US-191 Both Directions 15 Miles south of Moab
Description: Blasting will begin on Wednesday 18 September 2019 at 7:15 AM. Expect DAILY FULL ROAD CLOSURES, Monday through Thursday, for 45 minutes followed by additional 45 minute delays due to long traffic queues with single lane alternating traffic and potentially slow speeds due to road grade and types of vehicles.
Reason: Adding safety improvements to a two-mile stretch of highway. The project aims to improve recovery for vehicles that wander from the travel lanes by excavating into existing rock cuts and upgrading barrier to new standards or removing barrier where slopes can be leveled.

The Red Rock 4-Wheelers work to reserve a little strength to keep our recreational trails open. To that end, we have been setting aside some funds for emergency use. We call it the Multiple Use Defense (MUD) Fund.
When trail access or other multiple uses of the public lands are threatened, it is safe to say that the most important defense need is someone’s time and effort. It takes dedicated personal effort just to plan how to spend available money. The most serious threats are likely to call for professional services, probably legal counsel and actions.
The Red Rock 4-Wheelers are committed to defend and repair the Jeep Safari trails for all of our loyal supporters to enjoy, but we need your help. Read more and support the MUD Fund here.
Check out the new RR4W Logo items in our store (Shop tab)! We chose items that might come in handy when you're out 4 wheeling, at the ball park or in front of the TV on game day. Coffee mugs, blankets, hoodies, travel mugs, and from the past - dash plaques, MUD pins etc.
Trail of the MonthThe Red Rock 4 Wheelers have a regular club run, usually scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of the month.
Be advised: the state of Utah has tightened up enforcement of non-licensed vehicles on public roadways, you may be pulled over and warned or ticketed.
Jeep SafariThe Jeep Safari was Started in 1967 by the Moab Chamber of Commerce. The very 1st trail was "Behind the Rocks Trail" (according to what has been told to the club President, the road was made or improved with a BLM employee and equipment.) The "Moab Rim" was then added the next year. In those days, individual ice cream packages were dropped by airplane to the trails at lunch. All the leaders were Chamber members, there was no charge or entry fee, and only a Saturday trail. To register you showed up Saturday morning and signed up for the trail you wanted. The Safari was run this way through 1982 at which point the BLM required a permit and insurance. The chamber was no longer able to run the safari and approached the club to run this event.
The Jeep Safari itself, and participation in the event has grown since the club officially formed in the early 80s. Once the event was coordinated by the Red Rock 4-Wheelers, the registration moved from the Chamber building north of town, to Lion's Park, and on to what was called "the Barn" which is where McStiff's is currently located near Center and Main. Over the years the increase in participation grew to expand the trail riding to more days until it finally reached a nine day event. "Big Saturday" still remains the culmination of the event on the Saturday of Easter weekend. With the increase in numbers, the registration was moved to the Spanish Trail Arena where it is located today several miles south of the city of Moab on highway 191. This also became the location for the gigantic raffle, Boy Scout BBQ dinner, and the major vendor exposition.
Red Rock 4-Wheelers: A few years prior to 1983 the club had been formed as a small local organization by George Schultz. Most of the meetings were held in members homes. In the early months of 1983 after agreeing to take over the Easter Jeep Safari members (Leaders) were being recruited to run the Safari. And that transformed the club to what it is today. We have gone through many changes and added many new members, but we haven't forgotten that the club was formed as a family club to have fun and promote responsible 4-wheeling. So now, instead of just Jeep Safari, we have the Labor Day Camp Out, trails of the month, we cleanup and mark the trails, and participate in other club outings. We also work to keep the roads that we have open.
