My Family vacation this year is going to be in Moab and then over to Montrose & Gunnison areas in Colorado. We will be out that way the first or second week of October. I will driving my Liberty, so I am looking for some scenic and easier runs. Any suggestions/points of interests or anyone want to meet up and do some Jeepin? Thanks! Kelly

I can probably meet you in MOAB. Unfortunately, most of my fav easy trails have been destroyed by flash flood. See my post in the land issues section.

I can meet up over weekend but during the week, not so much. Keep us posted when you know the dates you'll be in town.

I'll be in Santa Fe the 10-17, then either around Albuquerque or north to Trinidad, Alamosa, Creede area. If you're around at that time give me a shout here. But I'm all stock.

If you stop in Trinidad be careful. Your stock KJ may end up with some added....or missing parts. Those headlight eyelashes, the dangling balls cut off from underneath.......

MUHAHAHA!!!! :ROTFL:

Looks like We'll arrive in Moab on Oct 8th. and stay for a few days. So some wheelin' would be fun for the weekend if anyone wants to pick or suggest some roads and get together! Maybe I can talk some other SoCal's to join in to.

I could be in the MOAB Friday evening; I am going this weekend to survey the damage from a few weeks ago. Many of the easy trails were destroyed. I will have an update this weekend.

Many of the lost jeepers here in SoCal have given me a list of trails to hit up, I'll be making hotel reservations this week. The family wants to do some river rafting thing while we're there. :shock: I'll post more when it gets closer.

It's popular and well marked so you won't have any trouble taking it without any of my help... :lol:

But seriously... I have no interest in that trail but it's popular among people visiting MOAB. When I was in MOAB two weeks ago Dan Mick was going on about ugly fencing that was put up and ruins the deal for tourists but I have not seen it. The trial "Fins-n-Things" is a good prep trail before diving in the deep end.

The best trial in MOAB area happens to be the hardest trail in Canyonlands, but KJs do it all the time 8) , is Elephant Hill Rd. The reason why LJS folks miss out is because they don't want to drive 55 miles to the trail head. It's the only trail that combines all the elements that MOAB is famous for:

scary edges
narrow switchbacks
fast baja-style tracks
amazing views
slick rock
rock crawling
ancient artifacts
hiking trails to more amazing views
a full day of backcountry fun

Elephant Hill is a transformative trail.

Another must-see trail that I take anyone visiting is "Top of the World" which is a cool trail that goes up a ledge that's 1500 ft over the valley below. There's no slick rock but there's a fair bit of moderate rock crawling.

Here's some links to trips past:
