The Red Rock 4 Wheelers have a regular club run every month. The run is usually scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of the month. 

The run meets on the north side of the City Market parking lot at 9:00am. 

The schedule below, along with the leader, is the tentative schedule, subject to change.  (Mike Kelso, Chairman TOM committee)

Jeep Safari 2014

The BLM has approved the permit for Jeep Safari 2014 and beyond. The permit was approved for a 10-year period and also allowed the club to add some new trails and trail segments to the permit. With the permit now approved and in force, the club is moving forward with plans to introduce some exciting new trails. 


But as a teaser, there will be a total of 8 new trails or trail segments added to the 2014 schedule. They are "The Pickle"(7), "Cameo Cliffs"(3), "Day Canyon Point"(4), "Deadman Point"(3), "Rusty Nail"(7),"Where Eagles Dare"(7), "Jax Trax"(5), and a special addition to Hell's Revenge "The Escalator"(8). All of these trails are now available for review on the trails page

Jeep Safari

The 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.
