Description

Shafer Trail Road and Mineral Road provide access from the main scenic drive atop the Island in the Sky mesa down to the White Rim Road. Shafer Trail Road is a wonderfully steep switchbacked fall down a cliff wall. It is fun in a 4wd vehicle and challenging on mountain bike. The Mineral Road also involves a steep switchbacked drop, but it is easier and can be driven in a high clearance 2wd vehicle in good weather.
