Moab and beyond for my birthday

I am a fledgling Wrangler owner, and my family and I are going to Moab in a little over a week for my birthday, then we are proceeding down through Monument Valley and to Page, AZ. We were hoping to hit the trails on our trip. Gemini Arches is on the list.

Any more ideas? Any good shops to go to in Moab for Jeep goodies?

get Well's moab trails book. The trails marked easy are really easy the trails marked moderate are easy. He lists them in order of difficulty and if you start at the bottom end of the moderate rated trails you will soon be wanting a little more challenge.

Onion Creek to Rose Garden hill, Thompson Canyon is very easy and great views.
Mineral bottom is another very easy but scenic trail/road.

Thanks, guys! We will be in Moab on the 28th, and heading down to Powell on the 29th. I hear you can Jeep at Lone Rock Beach. The Dr. Who nerd in me would love to get a pic of my Jeep where they filmed The Impossible Astronaut.

That's a great drive from Moab to Page but take your time and see some sites! You'll pass through Bluff and see a sign for Valley of the Gods, a short dirt road, beautiful. When you exit that you'll be close to the Goosenecks of the San Juan S.P., worth a quick visit.

Also, take the non-guided road into Monument Valley, takes a couple of hours but is well worth it.
