    Paging Moab Locals! What else you got?!

    Me and the crew are coming out to Moab from Denver this weekend (4/15) and we're trying to come up with something new to ride. We typically make the trip once a year for the past 6, and we've done the usual stuff and will be hitting the favorite Porcupine, and with a couple of Moab newbies we'll hit slickrock as well.

    What else is there? Other than the list below, what do you recommend?

    We've done 'em, in order of preference.
    PORCUPINE
    Slickrock
    Amasa Back w/ Pipeline
    Poison Spider/Portal
    Soveriegn Loops
    Bartlett Wash
    Back of Beyond
    Moab Rim

    I've heard that FlatPass is a poor man's Porcupine? Loved the Portal trail, is Gold Bar Rim to the Protal worth doing? Looking for fun technical singletrack that will push our skills .(and the bikes!).

    Thanks, in advance, for any info!!

    Try Schuman's Gulch in the La Sals there's other trails up there too (Moonlight Meadow I believe). Those rides are in Rider Mel's trail guide. Just something different. I've ridden Moab in October months, so I don't know what the trail conditions would be like now. Get in those mountains, lots of fun there!! Enjoy your trip!! Mmmm....Hoggie Oggies!!

    Mtns are full of snow right now...I'm guessing they'll be open in June/July time frame.

    No Mtns for us.

    Figured there wouldn't be any chance of riding in the La Sals this trip!!

    Anyone got any other ride suggestions? Anyone? Anyone? At this point were actually thinking about doing 2 days in Moab and then heading back to Fruita for a ride on the new Holy Cross trail.....

    We found some good stuff anyway, huh?!

    Goldbar Rim-> Portal and the new Holy Cross in Fruita were definitely worth the trip!

    We left on Thursday so didn't see your post. Definitely looking for the new stuff, and always willing to import good CO Micros for details! Will try to catch you next trip out!
