Being Prepared

In the past, I have been asked by many people about what I thought they should bring along with them on the 4-wheel drive trail? That truly depends on where you are going, the duration of the trip and who is going with you. It depends on whether you are going to make a 3-day trip to the Rubicon Trail alone, or you and 20 of your friends are going to take a leisurely trip over Crystal Geyser near Moab. If you’re doing the Rubicon, you better be ready for anything regarding parts, tools, and recovery gear, and your rigContinue reading

Rusty Nail

These are just general write ups.  For how the trail is being ran on the day you sign up be sure & check the forums in the trail section on the day you sign up for. This trip is designed for the hard core four wheeler that wants to tackle one of the Moab area’s famous tough trail segments. The Rusty Nail segment is combined with a couple of the Golden Spike Trail’s obstacles and the Gold Bar Rim Trail to complete a loop. The Rusty Nail section adds some rather unforgiving climbs and a hairy sidehill section to getContinue reading

Scenery: The highlight of the trail is the tunnel itself. To get to the tunnel, there is a short, but steep hike. Obstacles: This trail is mostly a dirtContinue reading

Gold Bar Rim

These are just general write ups.  For how the trail is being ran on the day you sign up be sure & check the forums in the trail section on the day you sign up for.

Gold Bar Canyon drains away from the rim into the Colorado River. The trail climbs the cliff in stages, first angling up to Little Canyon, then working itsContinue reading

These are just general write ups.  For how the trail is being ran on the day you sign up be sure & check the forums in the trail section on the day you sign up for. This trail tours the “Behind the Rocks” country. It avoids the very difficult and the very easy routes but passes near the hills at High Dive Canyon and White Knuckle Hill for the amazement of those who keep their driving at the 5-rated level. The Tip-Toe routes intersect the difficult version of Behind the Rocks, and even share a few miles of easy trailContinue reading

Strike Ravine

These are just general write ups.  For how the trail is being ran on the day you sign up be sure & check the forums in the trail section on the day you sign up for. This trail enters an area that remains beautiful despite the marks of “range improvements” (chaining), power lines, and uranium mining. Today, grazing continues, the power lines hum, but the mines are in ruins. Four-wheeling gets better, however, as the mine roads deteriorate. The trail is about 12 miles south of Moab and between Highway 191 and the La Sal Mountains. Much of it isContinue reading

The southern highlands are forested with pinyon andContinue reading
