How to get to Moab?

I'm heading out to Northern California next month for a week of work and might have a chance to get to Moab. How do I get there and is it walkable from the road, I'll have a rental car for this trip so I'm limited to just my feet for transportaition. I have always wanted to do the trail with my own rig, but for now I just want to see some of the trails.

Keep Jeep-n

Re: How to get to Moab?

rental cars are the best offroad vehicles on earth.

Is it ok to yell "movie" in a crowded fire house?

Re: How to get to Moab?

not near northern cal but i assume you will stop on the way. where do you live? there are some trails that you can walk from easy access with a regular car. right in town you can take a road(salt flats rd i belive- see attachment) to slickrock bike trail and continue on to the sand flats rec area. there are some trailheads right off the pavement with nice signs indicating the run ie HELL'S REVENGE and FINS N' THINGS, etc. can you rent a JEEP?

Re: How to get to Moab?

I assume you are flying into NCal. Don't know where you are going to be, but Moab is probably a 14-16 hour drive from the bay area.

From NCal the best route would be I-80 to SLC. Take the I-15 S out of SLC past Provo and look for US-6 S Exit in Spanish Fork Take US-6 S to I-70 E. I-70 E to US-191 (I think it's the 191). Take that S to Moab.

You can walk to some of the trails from the roads. Especially Moab Rim. There are also a few places to rent Jeeps in Moab. Some of them are even modified with lifts, lockers, etc.

You might want to think about renting a jeep while your there. I don't know it for a fact but I do believe they have them. Why not beat on somebody else's rig? Then you'll know what trails you want to try out when you get your own rig there.

Re: How to get to Moab?

Moab is a town in Utah, not a trail in California. It's easy to find on a road atlas. Perhaps you were thinking of the Rubicon.?
