    Moab conditions/trails for December 15-19th(ish)?

    Hey all,

    I'm a recent grad and still looking for work, so figure that means I should probably keep riding my bike while I can. Managed to get a van trip in and had Thanksgiving in Moab last month and had such a great time I'm thinking of going back next week for a bit longer.

    That said, anyone have thoughts on how conditions are looking for next week? Weather.com shows it'll be getting warmer next week, but I understand that doesn't always mean the trails are rideable?

    Also, any recommendations on trails for this time of year? I rode Deadmans ridge and the trails in that area, as well as Dead horse last time (was with a fairly new rider). Looking to ride more advanced trails this round (spent my summer in Whistler, confident in my abilities aboard a 6" trail bike).

    Lastly, where do I need to park the van to sleep for free these days? Almost got a ticket up Kane Creek rd, can't recall where they told us to go.

    If anyone wants to ride, feel free to post up or PM!

    Thanks in advance! Cheers!

    As of right now, it looks like weather moving in Friday and Saturday and turning much colder. Navajo Rocks, Mag 7 and Amasa Back might be good bets if we get moisture. Not sure about free camping/parking.

    Yeah, desert riding is good to go. No snow in town. Pretty sure even Mag 7 is clear and riding well and everything lower is clear.

    Any updates after this week's rain and snow? Thinking about heading down there later next week.
