Elephant Hill is one of my favorite trails. While many on here call it easy, (for a newb it has some pucker factor to it), it is well worth the trip IMO. While it isn't as challenging as other trails, it is VERY scenic, and fun. For people that want a little challange and a lot of scenery, it is great. Fins is fun, Gemini Bridges is Fun, Long Canyon is Fun, all fairly easy with some scenery.

Have fun. It is good you love heat because there will plenty of it that time of year out on the rocks with little to no shade. You'll love the scenery though, no matter where you go.

I am totally okay with a little pucker factor. I love to see how far I can push a fast car on a road coarse (I am a speed freak)! Although, I am sure it will be a different kind of pucker factor situation! I am up for the challenge.

Really appreciate the input!

Hey guys, don't normally post over here in the Utah thread but figured I'd try to get an idea of what you all think I could handle in Moab, in a WK2 Grand Cherokee with QT-II (4-low) and 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers. Thoughts? I'd like to do some cool slick rock, "what Moab is known for" type trails.

After some previous research, I had planned to hit Gemini Bridges and the Schafer Trail, Long Canyon, Bull Canyon, etc. Most of these are 2/3/4 ratings on TrailDamage.

Thoughts? Proof below that Wk2's can handle portions of Moab:

Someone had a wk2 on eye of whale and tower arch trail when I was there in April. But eye of whale may be impassable this late in the season.

So we are getting ready to head out and I wanted to thank everyone again for all of the great information. If anyone's plans have changed and you will be in the Moab area this Saturday or Sunday, please let me know. We would love to have someone to go offroad with. We plan on actually arriving late Friday so we may have enough time to go explore the milder areas.

Thanks again! We are both very excited!
