Great Views and easy riding close to Moab

NO Camping Facilities, park and ride only.
But you can camp at Ken's Lake and ride to Johnson's.
The distance is 3.31 miles on the Red Rock Trail.

Where to Ride:
The first portion of this ride was to follow the Red Rock trail
North until the first residential street, about 1 mile. I then
returned to Johnson's road on a little higher route. I now went
up a steep hilly wash to intersect with Johnson's road just below
the water tank. You can leave the road and go north at the horseshoe
by the water tank. You ride for about 1.5 miles along the cliffs.
On the return I stayed a little higher an intercepted the Johnson's
road above the water tank. Just follow the road back down to parking.

NOTE:
You can ride the Red Rock Horse trail from Ken's Lake to access
the road/trail up to Johnson's On Top.
Kens's Lake to Johnson's road is about 3.3 miles one way.
