Wheeling trip

Hello,, I am planning a trip to Moab and the southwest on sept. 13 - 28 or longer, and could use any info on fun and fairly diffucult trails and/or some clubs or people who wouldn't mind if i tagged along. Ive been wheeling for 10 years,and will be driving a 74 blazer fully equipped (real world tested) for just about anything. It is my first trip out so i would like a little more than maps a coordinates to find the trails, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Distance is no problem and there is a super loose time table i have to work with. Thanks in advance!

Re: Wheeling trip

You will have a blast in Moab. I went with our club the week before EJS. The first trail I recomend you do is Moab rim. Even though it is rated 4+, it isn't difficult. Big pucker factor of leaning towards an all to close cliff, driving on a narrow ledge, don't worry, more than enough room for a fullsize. Once on top, you can play on the sand dunes. My favorite trail was Hells revenge, start at dump bump, then you can go find Mickies hot tub, escalator, tip over challenge, among others. You really need to go with someone that knows the Hells revenge trail area. All of the tough spots have bypasses. I also enjoyed Pritchet canyon. There are no bypasses on this trail, but only a few difficult spots. Rocker Knocker, Rock Pile, and Yellow Hill, and your out, Except for the 20 mile drive back to town, and a stop at some more sand dunes. All of the trails start close to town, I believe the farthest is Poisan spider mesa/Golden spike, but those started less than a mile from where I camped. I didn't get to drive Helldorado, but it is a little tight for a fullsize, so I don't recomend it for your blazer. Go and have a blast, the shop will help you out, if they aren't busy, they will probably join you, and show you around.

Thanks, Ray
