Moab 2013 Itinerary

Saturday - June 1st . Fins and things . It is a great sampling of what Moab has to offer and can show the first timer what to expect .
Hells Revenge can also be run from here very easily or we could take Sand Flats up to Geyser pass for some summertime snow wheeling. Or we could run out Potash and go up Long Canyon trail . This is a mellow trail that goes up to dead horse point . Dead Horse is an amazing place to go see , and the views are incredible .

Sunday - June 2nd. Moab Rim trail . For whatever reason I have only hiked this trail . There are a few ledges on the way up that require attention , but once we are past those its not too bad . Lots of neat stuff up top along with lots of great views .

Monday- June 3rd . Poison Spider / Golden Spike ? For those so inclined we could run the spike all the way to Gold Bar Rim and Gemini Bridges . For those that dont want to run an 8 hour trail they could loop back around and go back down Poison Spider .

Tuesday-June 4th . Steel Bender . Really fun trail that follows Mill creek all the way south to Kens Lake . Very fun trail with a pretty big water crossing at the end .

Wednesday-June 5th. Flat Iron Mesa . This one is south of town a ways but has lots of different terrain . There is one spot I will bypass as it is exceptionally tight and the drop off is huge . But I will gladly guide anyone who wants to drive around the corner o' death .

Thursday-June 6th . Elephant Hill . Way south of town , you have to really want to wheel this trail as it is south of town by over an hour by the time you drive through Canyonlands to get to the trailhead . You will need to buy a pass from the park to run this one and it will be mostly the blind leading the blind as I have only hiked the first two miles of this trail as the rental car had no chance of making it up the hill .

Friday-June 7th . Hotel Rock trail south of Blanding . Its out there ... I mean really out there . But the trail is fun and there wont be anyone else there besides us .

Saturday-June 8th Snake house / via Comb Wash . Awesome Indian Ruins at the end of a sandy/ledgy trail . On the way back we could hit comb wash or the Moki Dugway .

The 7th and 8th are way south of town , but thats where me and my brother in law will be staying . Theres a chance we may stay in Moab for the week and go to Monticello on the 8th . All of the trails listed above are suggestions that I pulled out of my head from past trips . You have seen most of them in the magazines and videos , but there are some notable trails missing . Such as Cliff Hanger , Pritchett Canyon and Behind the Rocks . There are many more beyond those , but they are the more famous ones off the list . If anyone wants to run those we can split the group in two depending on abilities and run separate trails for the day .

Again the trails above are just suggestions and I am open to all ideas and inputs .

I don't want to speak for Beasley, since he's the founder of this trip. But I can say for myself. YOU CAN TAG ALONG, and we will get you through. It may take a winch, a tug, a pull, or some motivation. But having been the leader during many wheeling trips in the Sierra's, everyone always makes it through.

The only thing I ask, is that you make sure your Junk is ready to wheel! Basic maintenance, a fluid check, physical nut / bolt check..... We all know things break, but it's frustrating when it's something easily avoidable or stems only from neglect.

(quoted the wrong post here) but the message is clear!

Sounds like a pretty good idea so far, I know jake and I, mike and art are probably all going to spend a day at area bfe.

And are you planning on doing holy cross too? I know I want to hit that trail the absolute most, more than any trail in moab.

Not sure about Beasley...

Holy cross is epic, I'll be there for sure. Chinaman is awesome too, I'll be there. So is Penrose: liberty/independence/ patriot. If i get my rear locker before the trip I'll drive penrose. If not I'll ride along with someone. I wish everyone was spending more time in CO.

Will you guys be in CO the whole weekend with us ? My buddy should be able to lead us through Penrose...once you drop in there's really no going back.

Yeah we should be there with you in Colorado. Half of me wanting to go outwest is simply for Colorado.

I want to check out bfe as well.

Also Beasley I have almost all those trails minus the southern most ones you mentioned on my list. I purchased the Charles wells trail guide but haven't gone through it just yet.

Only issue I have with the tentative itinerary is I also want to do fins and things and Moab rim but won't get there until Monday but we will figure it all out I'm sure.

Too many trails, too little time. That's the story every time I go to Moab. Haha

Lou we can make things work for Moab Rim / Fins, but you'd enjoy a Hells night run more ??? Lol I kid. I'm down for whatever this trip.

Beasley, I will definitely do Red Elephant with you. I've missed it the last 3 trips. Now that they could potentially close the trail to MV it's a must.

As long as I can still load it in the trailer at the end I'll try anything once.

We can run two trails on most days depending on the size of the group and any breakages . So if you want to run Fins and Things after we run something else thats fine by me . The Charles Wells book is good , and I find his descriptions accurate . As to BFE , I no longer have a rig for that kind of stuff . I have ran upper and lower helldorado in the past and it was awesome . Sadly lower is now closed and upper is beyond my rigs capability now .

I might be able to run more than one Colorado trail , just depends on when I get to leave NC .

There is no poopy pants on Chinaman unless you choose optional stuff. Your rig will love chinaman you can make it as hard as you want too.

Pics of beef basin look amazing.

Where you looking to camp ?

I plan on camping at the log cabin

I think theres room for you there , 8000 feet and a nice place to put a tent . My wife cooks a heck of a breakfast and there is a hot shower too . Though you may want to worry about being attacked by me and my brother in laws kids .
