Moab Trails

Headed to Moab and thinking of hitting these trails. Hells Revenge, Porcupine Rim and Gemini Bridges. Any thoughts on this and any others we should consider? We'll be there 2 days and will visit Durango and Zion too if you have recommendations there too. Thanks!

Cliff Hanger has always been one of my favorite trails. The scenery is spectacular and the trail is interesting.

Moab Rim is a fun short trail that can be run in the evening after dinner.

Have fun. Bring plenty of water.

Top of the World is a must too.

Only one on your list I've done is Hells Revenge.
Fun trail that you can make anywhere from moderately easy to moderately hard.
If I recall correctly we spent most of a day on it.

How difficult a trail are you willing to do? Are you headed down alone, or will you be with a group? Also, I suppose knowing if you're towing or driving may have an impact on what trails may be recommended. The only trail on that list that I have not done is Gemini. I've done the other two and you'll be fine if your profile of 35" tires and F/R lockers is accurate. You'd be fine to do Porcupine and Hells on 32s with only one locker.

Hell's is probably one of my top five trails in Moab. So definitely do that. If you want to hit another trail close by that day then run over to Fins N Things. Those two can easily be run in the same day and most people do it that way to maximize the wheeling.

Top of the World is supposed to be a VERY bumpy and miserable ride. I've never ridden it so I don't know. Other great options for scenery would be Poison Spider ( an all day trip and relatively difficult in many spots), Dome Plateau, and 7 Mile Rim. Also if you're willing to drive out of town Elephant Hill is another one of my favorites. But it's in Canyonlands.

I'll probably think of some others. Now that you've posted this question pix of the trip are required.

These are a few pictures of the views from Top of the World.
I have been on most of the trails at Moab, this by far is the prettiest view of them all.
LeeMastersGT is right though, it is a very long and bumpy trail.
Matter of fact, I swore that I would go and find the guy that said to take this trail if the view was not worth it. As you can see, it was.

Poison Spider and Gold Bar give you a good view over looking the town and Arches.
