That is a great place over 300 acres of open access private owned 4x4 park just south of town. Free camping and a lot of hard core trails.
You add to the the lack of common sense when I was there and it was open, the dunes at the base were covered with folks partying and all they would do is run up and down that thing all day and set at the bottom waiting for someone to go off. Everyone has seen the video of the Blazer going off the side but a friend was out there the day that happened and he said he watched it go up and down at least 3 times just in the short period of time he was there observing. He had left before she lost brakes and went over the side.
No I have not but I am glad you mentioned it. Last time I was in Moab was 2004.That is about the time they were opening that place up I think and we never made it over there and I had forgotten about it. Been wanting to do a trip to Montrose Co but hate to get that close to Moab and not go on in but because I no longer license and insure my Jeep couldn't figure out where to go other than Pritchett canyon. So many of the trails you come out in a different spot than you go in and have to drive on the hi-way or back track half a day.
I need to check that place out. Thanks!!!!!
