Re: Headed to Moab - Need input!
Living in Denver, planning on a trip out to Moab sometime in the near future. Not 100% dedicated to off-roading, but would like to get the Jeep to a few "scenic" spots and drive on some of the slick rock. Also plan on taking some time outside of the Jeep to explore (on foot) the "fiery furnace" trail in Arches NP.
That all said, looking for recommendations on trails to choose in the Moab area.
I have QTII, but still have the 20's on the stock Fortera's. No skid plates. I've done a few light off road trips (Mill Creek Road at Vail, CO; some branches off of Coffee Pot Road near Glenwood Springs, Loch Lomond trail in Clear Creek County CO). Nothing too crazy, but the Fortera's didn't seem to experience any issues.
Suggestions? Photos from other trails WK2's have accomplished in that area? Other sites/activities (jeep or non jeep) worth experiencing while there? This would probably be a weekend trip, leaving Denver on a Friday afternoon and getting into Moab that evening (350 miles, 5.5 hours) and just relaxing, doing the off-roading and Arches stuff on Saturday, then some shorter things on Sunday before heading back to Denver.
Thoughts? (Sorry for the long post)
