Day 1) Fins+Things , , Potato salad hill.
Day 2) Rose garden hill and Top of the world.
Day 3) Kane creek canyon + or Strike ravine.
Day 4) Poison spider mesa, Golden spike, Gold bar rim.
Day 5) 7 Mile rim.
i know they are not the most dificult trails out there but i think it's a good mix of stuff. some high above and some canyon stuff. some slickrock and dirt and rocks. if we don't like it after a couple days we can change it up, i hope.
Seems like good list. I would change Fins and things and run Hells revenge instead. Other than that great trails. You will have fun for sure...Top of the world is a long ride on dirt roads...i found it rather boring.
Kane creet or strike ravine...both are fun trails to run..watch out for washouta at cane creek..after heavy rains this trail can turn into reallu long day.
Poison spider, golden spike and gold bar..start early in the morning because those trails are long when put together...but definatelly worth running.
7 mile....nice easy trail wit nice views...good to run in between harder ones to take a break from hard wheeling. Last obstacle on this trail is steep and fun to play at.
Also if you will find some time run Moab Rim....with a small group you can run to the top and back in less than 2 hrs.
