Headed to Moab

Hey Ya'll we are headed to Moab for family vacation. I was looking for information on what might be needed to get on the trails there such as permits and such.

Thanks in advance....Jim

No permits per se, Hells or Fins and Things you pay at the Ranger station, same with Arches or Dead Horse point. Enjoy.

I loved Poison Spider, down to Golden Spike and Gold Bar Rim. Nothing too extreme and a full day. Found that I really didn't need to buy the National Parks Pass, although we ended up doing so just to run the Arches Trail one day. Buy one of the Moab Trail Books. They have the newest edition now with a spiral binding. Makes it easy to stay on track while you are on the trail.

camp, but its one of the best trails to do.

I will certainly check them out! Thanks a bunch, although we are in a stock JK, I think we should be able to hit most of the trails....

Can you recommend some trails for us, we have done several in two days, looking for easy trails, and maybe moderate but nothing to rip things up as we need to get back to the east coast.

Thanks, Jim

Jim, there are lots of trails that are not to demanding. Try 7 Mile Rim, Gemini Bridges, Sheaffer switchbacks & Long Canyon, you will like that one. Also Behind the rocks but stay on the main trail don't turn off & it is beautifull. You can go down Chicken corners ,thats a long trail but worth it & if you turn down the Dripping springs trail it takes you to some fun caves on the way. They will fill in another few days, let me know if you need more
I was up on Kane Creek a few weeks ago, it is ok just a little more demanding but not to bad as long as there is at least 2 vehicles & as everyone has said Hells Revenge is very fun & Fins & things is too

Here is what we have done so far....

Day one we did Gemini Bridges, Shafer Switchbacks and Long Canyon....all pretty great.

Day two we went to Tusher Tunnel, Hidden Canyon, Onion Creek and Fisher Towers. A little boring

Yesturday we did Picture Frame Arch, but we didnt get to the end, it looked kind of a little difficult so we turned around and called it an early day.

Today we are headed to Hurrah Pass, and Chicken Corners...And we are off!

Thanks so much for you trail input, We really appreciate it!

Jim

If you Google Red Rock 4 Wheelers and e-mail them, I'm sure they will help. They can help you determine which trails are suitable for your equipment and interests. They may even offer a guide to run with you.
