    I would put Amasa Back in the must do column.

    Actually,
    I would rethink day one and see if you are up to the Whole Enchilada. It is a physically demanding trail taking anywhere from 3-9+ hours. Call Kyle at ACME or Brian at PS and catch a shuttle and ride by far one of the very best rides in Moab!

    A couple of things that would help those recommending trails: When will you be in Moab? Do you only have two days? Has anyone in your group been to Moab before? What's everyone's riding experience?

    It's an interesting choice of rides you brought up (choices 1-3 in the original post). That sounds like top Moab recommendations circa '95. Do you have a guidebook or other info? If so, you may want to consider something more up to date. Latitude 40 brand maps, and Rider Mel's guidebook are popular choices.

    I do have a lat 40 map but a old guide book. Do you have a better up to date trail to ride my second day, I don't want to get back and someone say( Did you ride so-in-so trail) I will be in Moab Sept. 28&29th. No one in my group has been there before and as far as riding experience, we all are intermediate to advanced, we all have raced in several 12hour - 50 miler - and one 36 hour race just this year so our stamina is top notch and some of our skill levels are very good.We are gonna be out west for 2 weeks and we have all been training for this trip.Here's a local race on our home turf coming up in October http://www.blueridgeadventures.net/stage/main.html We ride these trails weekly.Hope this info helps.

    Definitely gotta do the Whole enchilada. Catch an early shuttle and ride Burro to Hazzard to Kokopeli to Upper Porcupine Single track to Lower Porcupine single track and then hit Porcupine. The ride is close to 30 miles. It has over 8K of descent with about 1k-1.5k of climbing and rides all kinds of beauty and fun.
    MUST DO, MUST DO, MUST DO! The ride is awesome with 6" bikes and lots of folks ride their xc bikes and do just fine. If you have at least an AM bike ride that. If you ride only Porcupine you are going to miss out on so much of truly epic ride. Kyle at ACME can hook you up.

    There's nothing to 'spill' really. If you've never been to Moab and only have two days you should ride the most popular trails. In late September, that Whole Enchilada route should be first on your list.

    Personally, I think your group should ride the Slickrock trail. It sounds like you'll want more riding than that though. I'd suggest Slickrock in the morning on your second day. Sovereign trail in the afternoon seems like a good fit for your group. It's a trail system, so you could make it longer or shorter depending on how everyone feels.

    You'll have people tell you that you missed so and so trail in Moab no matter what you ride. Have fun,

    axolotl has it right.

    Day One: The Whole Enchilada (Hands down one of the best rides ever).

    Day Two: Amasa/Rock Stacker/Jacksons in the AM.... Blue Dot to Portal in the PM.

    Best three charted trails in Moab imho.

    It's the Gold Bar Rim singletrack marked by blue slashes. I'll send you a pm with the beta.

    And like Supersize said, if you get a chance to ride in GJ, take it. The Lunch Loops stuff taking off from the Tabauache trailhead near the Colorado National Monument is stellar.
