    going to Moab

    I and a couple friends will be in Moab in a few weeks. We're doing a Telluride to Moab hut trip and will be in Moab a couple days prior to get some rides in.
    We're arriving Friday night and have all day Saturday and a few hours Sunday morning to ride.
    None of us have ever been there.
    What "must do" trails should we plan on riding?

    Thanks in advance
    -Rich

    The sticky is pretty good... but it's not trip-specific of course. From what I have heard about that hut trip, you might not want to even look at your bike after you finish.

    You will also get to ride Porcupine Rim anyway, which is high on everybody's list.

    Please post a trip report of your Hut to Hut ride. Telluride is so beautiful

    Despite a lot of people being down on Slickrock Trail - it's still the iconic Moab ride. Personally, I think it kicks ass and is a must do. Porcupine is the other must do... Have fun!

    yeah, that's why we're going to Moab first. We want to get some rides in there before we're too burnt out to even want to do it or too tired to enjoy it.

    Thanks

    I did the Whole Enchilada last year and will be doing it again this year. Epic!

    We're heading up there in 2 or 3 weeks. Hope Burros Pass is ridable.

    Anyone have current beta on the conditions up high in the La Sal's?

    I would bet that Burro Pass will be sweet in a couple of weeks. They've had a lot of rain lately (monsoon season) which will magically help rid the trails of dust.
    alternate route suggestion for Burro Pass Loop: Instead of riding up Geyser rd., park at the corner of oowah lake rd. and the La Sal mtn loop rd (right before modern bridge) ride up oowah lake rd. to oowah lake, ride around right hand side of lake (boren mesa to clark lake loop tr) up past clark lake to "moonlight meadows trail which brings you to geyser pass. This gives you all singletrack (most rideable) to Geyser Pass instead of riding a fire road. Coming down take Burro Pass to Deep Creek to Burro Pass to Schuman trail
