Okay, so we ventured to 7 mile rim, and it was a snoozer to almost the entire group. Looking over the rest of the trails that have been suggested. Based on the videos and description and ratings of trails, I'm thinking Flat Iron Mesa will be similar to 7 mile. Our favorites have been the Triple combination, Metal Masher and Hell's Revenge. I think the only thing that can stack up as far as consistant enjoyable obstacles is Cliffhanger and Behind the Rocks. We're not looking for romper-stomping, ramming speed, biggie country. But more technical crawling, that you aren't threatened to break something or feel under prepared because you don't have 37+ inch tires and dual spools.
We have a trip in June planned, and am interested in opinions of Cliffhanger and Behind the Rocks - based on the trails mentioned that we have really enjoyed. I understand Cliffhanger has lots of pucker, which is fine if needed to get to some fun obstacles, but I have officially written off Moab Rim after running it 3 times in the past year. I just don't feel comfortable with the constant off-camber nature of the trail right next to the cliff. The cliff itself isn't bad, but the non-stop feeling of being tipped off the edge. Hopefully the cliff-side ride of CH isn't as nerve-racking as Moab Rim. And what about Behind the Rocks? Any other ideas?
Sorry, we're kind of a bunch or princesses; trails can't be too boring, but not too nasty either.
