Willow Springs Road offers several different options for those enjoying the deserts around Moab. Dispersed camping, mountain biking, and jeeping into Arches National Park are all common activities in this wide open landscape.

If it were not for a small sign sticking up out of the white Navajo sandstone, most visitors would probably walk, ride, or drive right by one of the coolest things in this area: dinosaur tracks! Several rows of tracks were left in the wet mud over 150 million years ago by three-toed reptiles of a medium build. There are a few thousand petrified tracks in the area, but most are not so easy to find as these.
