Ride the ATV UTV Trail in Moab Utah Onion Creek
Join me and my Polaris buddies on a Moab Adventure
The Polaris Ranger RZR S is the way to explore Moab
Boy, oh boy! I am really enjoying my new Polaris Ranger RZR S. Polaris is the name to look for when you are thinking of buying a UTV.
If you are wondering what a UTV is, maybe you better check out my Hub on UTV ATV Trails in Southern Utah. In that Hub I discussed just exactly what a UTV was, and how great the Polaris Ranger RZR S actually is.
I also talked about a really cool ride I took when I visited Moab, Utah, to a place called Chicken Corners. I posted a ton of great pictures so that you could actually see the kind of stuff you might encounter on the trail. So, if you want to know about Chicken Corners, click here and read that Hub too.

The Beginning of the Onion Creek Trail
Onion Creek Trail, Moab, Utah
The adventure we went on today was a trip down the Onion Creek Trail. The Onion Creek Trail has a total different feel from the one we did yesterday at Chicken Corners. The Onion Creek Trail involves water and mud! Yes, you heard me correctly, while on this trail we actually crossed over Onion Creek 27 different times. That means you might get a little wet in the process. Never fear though, the Polaris is the vehicle that will get you through in a snap.
The trail itself starts from Highway 128 and takes you through the Richardson Amphitheater, which is actually a beautiful meadow located between the red mesas of the area.
The Onion Creek Trail starts off wide and easy to ride.
Onion Creek Trail, more like "the road less traveled".
As we progressed further along the Onion Creek Trail the trail began to look a little more like “the road less traveled”. But, for us, it was no problem because we had the Polaris Ranger RZR S which seems to be able to make it through any situation. The trail just got rougher and narrower as we progressed along.
Onion Creek Trail turned into a narrow rocky path.
Onion Creek Trail is "World Class Adventure"
The familiar red cliffs welcomed us as we all returned back to the beginning in one piece. A little wet, and tired from a great day on the trail. The Moab countryside is always an adventure and exploring it makes for some first class excitement. Everybody who went on the Onion Creek Trail had a great time, even the furry ones.
Back at the Beginning but a little dirtier than we started!
Safety is a must when you ride the Polaris!
TIP of the day for the Trail: It is always good to make sure you travel in twos. Use the buddy system, it just makes sense! Never go alone when you go exploring, always be prepared for the unexpected. Stay safe, and have fun!
Our next adventure in Moab is Fins and Things.
Join me for another Moab UTV trail adventure as I explore Fins and Things tomorrow.
