Tj Moab in Nov?

Any of you go during this time? Any recommendations for lodging? Tips on supplies other than the typical Safety items for trailing?

Lodging in Moab

Hey, I've been to Moab in the summer, beautiful place. As far as Lodging it depends what you like. Your typical motels, B&B's are around. I prefer to tent it (keep in mind it may be cold in Nov.so an rv or trailer may be best) There are probably more places to camp than motel rooms in Moab. Have fun

Anyone in that area care to help a visitor out? Show some trails cool stuff like that. Heck I'd be more than willing to lead you around my area if you are ever up here.

I am going up in late october. Look into the KOA cabins for lodging. Also I picked up a Moab guide book off of amazon that has a bunch of great info including GPS points. I manually loaded them onto my GPS so I could possibly send you the file if you use gps

here is a link to the book i used

Going to be staying at the Archway Inn. I'll check the book out. I have a GPS and I can upload to it. It's older but does the trick for the most part. Doesn't pick to many off-road trails up. Might have to upgrade REAL soon.

That's a good book. They just came out with the same book but with a spiral binding that makes it easier to read and have open when you're wheeling. I bought mine there in Moab.

+1 on the Wells' book. I had another one but picked up the Wells' one in Moab and found out about some different trails that weren't listed in the other one.

I am going for the first time Sept. 26-28 and staying at the KOA (in a Kabin)(that is the way they spell it). I will be meeting up with another club like this one (RamChargerCentral (RCC). It looks like we are going to have a great turn out too. I am looking forward to this trip. My son's 31st birthday is the 27 so this is his birthday present. puttputt56

This will be my 1st official Vacation in 18yrs. Any other time I've visited home it was like work because everyone wants to see my family and the kids. Well Moab is 708 miles from my hometown and they don't want to come up. So... Vacation for my family! We are going to try and get a white water trip in, some biking and definitely some fishing!

I guess I'll buy that book incase I don't hook up with a local club or someone who knows their way around that doesn't charge to be a trail leader.

Moab in November... sure...
We have done Moab the week of Thanksgiving the last few years... not hot and not crowded either... did snow last year one day, but was gone by the next day...

Nice thing about that area... is it will be 60's and up here it will be 40-50s. I can wear shorts down there.

Make sure you take the time to run down to the Needles District and run the Elephant Hill Trail. Take the loop and go out to the confluence of the Green and Colorado Rivers. If your staying in Moab, it will be an all day trip but a late lunch at the confluence is pretty nice. While you are down that way be sure to soak up the sunset at either the the Needles or Anticline Overlook.

There are some other trails closer to Moab with great scenery, ie, Chicken Corners and Hurrah Pass. And then there are the technical trails like Potato Salad Hill. You might want to search youtube for some wheeling vids from the Moab area to give you an idea of what is available.

Hey Drew thanks for the 411! I'll look into it while I'm down there. I'll be there for 7 days so it gives us time to soak up scenery.

Thanks to all that posted, I had to deploy last minute so my Nov run is cancelled. I'm hoping to make a Spring trip down now.
