moab advice

we have a dozen or so driving or towing 2,500 miles to moab the first week of Oct. we have picked the trails listed below, i think they are a good mix. most of us are double locked and 33"s or 35's some single locked. i'm looking for advice or input about the trails. thanks in advance

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.

I'm heading down there for 10 days in the start of October also, if you can get ahold of the Charles A Wells (Guide to Moab, UT Backroad & 4Wheel Drive Trails) it will help you out. Get the spiral wound edition for the extra $5, it worth it. If you're going to Fins n Things don't skip Hells Revenge its right there. Run them both the same day, skip the Escalator and Hells Gate and stay out of the hot tubs if you want but you have to see them. Google Moab if you havn't already. We were down there in July 08. Looking forward to go back in Oct. It's 2600 km one way for us.

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.
