Riding down the Lion’s Back, in Moab, Utah is one of the most scariest things.

This amazing and dangerous rock is not for stock vehicles or novice drivers. The Lion’s Back is a famous sandstone ridge located near the city of Moab in the US state of Utah. This lovely piece of rock is very popular among 4×4’ers.

The experience is simply stunning. Make sure your vehicle is properly geared. The climb is several hundred feet up the slope with a gradient of up to 65 degrees in places, and then the world’s most precarious 3-point turn at the top of the rock before the hair-raising descent.

As the tyre tracks on the rock show, plenty off-roaders have proved their insanity here.

Lion’s Back has been closed since 2006. Now it’s privately owned. Excellent traction enables vehicles to surmount inclines of incredible steepness but plenty of power is necessary. The attraction and campground is now private property and no longer accessible by 4×4’ers.
