In July, 2016, I met up with some friends, who are living in New Paria, to explore the Vermilion Cliffs NM. From previous visits I knew, that there had been some side roads on the west side rim, which we never went in.
We met at the Coral Valley entrance and headed then back south to go in a different route than usual. From there we went on the western rim route and explored overall three side roads, before we went back to Pine Tree Road via another trail, we did not drive before.
After Shane, Esperanza and Tom split off to head home, I was running the Paw Hole route to Sandhills Ranch to see, how that climb is, when the sand is extremely dry. From the ranch, I went then back to House Rock Valley Road via Coral Valley.

We always wanted to visit Lynn Tank and Shed Valley Tank and this year, we had the chance to go there. We went in the usual route via House Rock Valley and then drove up to Big Sink Valley. From there we headed to Middle Reservoir and had lunch. Then we followed an almost gone trail to Lynn Tank, which is like a little secret. It has some interesting rock formations like the 'Lying Dog'. The colors are also somewhat different from other locations in the Vermilion Cliffs NM.
After being back on the upper route, we went into Bushhead Valley and stopped at the ranch. After taking some pictures, we drove a new to us road via Horse Ridge to Shed Valley. This road is pretty sandy. In Shed Valley, we hiked to Shed Valley Tank, which has some very interesting geological formations. From there we went back to House Rock Valley Rd. and kept it a day.

After we had been doing some outstanding wheeling in Kingman, AZ, we went up to the Vermilion Cliffs NM. On march, 23rd, we planned to go in via House Rock Valley Road. Instead of driving through Coral Valley, we thought, we could have some fun driving up Paw Hole. This route is usually very sandy, but this time, it was really disappointing, as there was not much sand at all. We drove up towards Sand Hills Ranch and then left at the crossroad to reach the Coyote Buttes South permit area. Behind the gate of the permit area, a trail is going northeast. This trail leads close to Steamboat Rock. From the Steamboat Rock parking area, the trail continues and forms the Sand Hills Loop, which connects later with the route from Sandhills Ranch to White Pocket. There is a nice hoodoo along that trail (better to say at the end of an almost gone short side trail). The weather was not really great that day and the wind was blowing like nothing, when we arrived at White Pocket. ... See MoreSee Less

Last year, I went into Four Arch Canyon and visited Crisp Hole. In Four Arch Canyon, I did not spot all four arches. So this time, we wanted to see, whether we can find Shadow Arch from the rim above Four Arch Canyon.
I checked the topo maps and saw, that there are two trails going off Long Canyon Rd. and dead end on the south and north side of Four Arch Canyon high above on the rim.
This was a moderately easy trail at the time, we drove it.
