Lathrop Canyon is a jeep road between the White Rim Trail and the Colorado River. It is worth the trip for those wanting to add some miles to their White Rim day, and maybe a swim in the river.

       If you start from Islands in the Sky, it’s about 40 miles round trip to go down Shafers, and out along the White Rim to ride this. A great ride! Note that you are supposed to get a permit for any travel on the White Rim trail.
