    New question here. Suggestions for a 3 day weekend in Moab?

    Just wanted to get some opinions on this, myself and 2 or 3 friends are planning a trip to Moab in early/mid October, I've been there several times and have ridden Slickrock, Porcupine, and Gemini Bridges. Of the others going, only one has been to Moab and he has only rode Slickrock. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for the trip, we'll have two full days and one half day to spend there, definitely planning to do Porc but other than that open to anything, considering Soverign, Amasa, Gold Bar and lots of others. Any other must rides for our group? Thanks for any advice!

    I have been to Moab a bunch of times over the last few years and this is the first year I have ridden Amasa Back (finally). Great trail. That one will become a must do. It's also a good trail to do on a half day. Not too long but quite technical in sections.

    Another one that until recently hasn't been talked about too much is Fisher Mesa. It's in the Lasalle Mountains to the East of Moab and is a blast. The newer guide books should have directions to it.

    Otherwise, make sure you do Porcupine. Slickrock is, of course, a love it or hate it kind of trail. Make sure the guys you are riding with know what they are getting into.

    Have fun!

    Slow and steady gets you...7th place.

    I strongly recommend Sovereign. I rode it last spring as an out and back from the southern trailhead. There is a vast slickrock area near the northern end upon which you can ride up and down for as long as you want. Just remember where the trail is. All the others you mentioned are great too.
