|BreckenridgeYJ||In a different thread I stated I lucked out skipping a run...... Your stock rubi could go practically anywhere, if you'll press the gas pedal on those trails...... That said, run poison spider Mesa with another jeep or 2. Will give you a solid basis for judgement. It certainly did for me without any problem spots. Wish I would have had my bag of L glass along for the trip!|

behind the rocks
Thanks for the heads up.
We are full of common sense and will always cross check references.
Suggestions always will spur investigations.
Better safe than sorry.
Having fun is the goal.

behind the rocks
Unless your Rubi is pretty well built and you have some serious balls, the behind the rocks trail is pretty intense. Look up "white knuckle hill" basically you go down a steep series of ledges, and off a 6 ft cliff.... No bypass.
I almost got talked into running this trail last week in my TJ, ended up hopping in another jeep for the day. I'm VERY glad I did. Further reading informed me this is one of the most difficult trails in Moab.

Also out Behind the Rocks, take the main dirt road out to the Very Desirable overlook, it's a very scenic drive & looks over Kane Creek. I would also suggest 7 Mile rim trail, it is spectacular & a moderate trail|

Just got back from Arches. Simply stunning. Pick up Guide to Moab, UT Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails 2nd Edition and National Geographic's Trails Illustrated Map 500 + 501 for your Jeeping pleasure. Also, pick up Hiking from Here to WOW, Utah Canyon Country, for hiking and general info. Amazing area. Have fun, be safe, and read up on precautions for traveling alone off-road.
Don't miss Back of Beyond bookstore in Moab. Greatest selection of outdoorsy books in the whole US.

Moab in April
Hello we are Colorado folks and bought our 2012 Rubi last Summer. We are going to Moab in April. We bought it to access remote areas for photography, hiking and wheeling around.
Any great photog trips around there that are moderate (just learning the vehicles capabilities) and maybe a bit tougher that folks might suggest?
We will visit Arches. certainly, but where are the hidden treasures?
Thanks in advance!
