Where 

Plans are to explore trails in and around Moab, Utah. Full routes will be studied and shared as we create them. These trails will vary in difficulty. We want the entire crew to stick together so we all must be prepared for the route chosen. Here are just a few we are looking to explore .....

Hole in the Rock (hard)

Canyonlands Shafer Trail

Top of the world

Hells Revenge

Fins and Things

Copper ridge Trail

Steel Bender (hard)

Hells Gate

La Sal & Geyser pass

When / Itinerary

Thursday Sept 7th we will depart from the southeast and attempt to convoy with the group. Rally points will be communicated at a later date. It will take approximately 3 days to reach Moab. We will disperse camp and/or stay at county or state parks on the way. We will arrive in Moab sometime Sunday Sept 10th. The plan will be to freely explore as many trails as we possibly can for the next 4 days. We wish it could be longer :( . We will have a route of some sort but we try and keep this fluid. We ask everyone coming to understand it is required to be prepared for anything and to have the adventerous spirit . On Friday morning Sept 15th we will begin the trek back East. This also will take appx 3 days. The goal would be to back home late Sunday night Sept 17
