    I'm going down to Moab this Sunday for a week of camping and riding with a buddy and his XT225. (close enough)



    Anybody else going to be in the vicinity next week?

    Just left there friday. Here were my favorites. White rim trail was nice. It took us about 9hours "taking our time" from the gas station at 191&313. 129miles from the gas station back to the gas station and thats the closest station. Beautiful. My favorite was the Koppelli trail/onion creek loop. Take 128 N to dewey bridge follow that trail to the "top of the world trail" 5miles of technical rock to the top. The best view in the Moab area in my opinion "unreal". Then back to the kopelli trail which is kinda ruff in spots then down rose garden hill which is nasty and and we had to walkem down a bit. Onion creek is the most beautiful road ive ever been on. The colors and color changes are out of this world!!! Easy road/trail but its a must see. Castle creek off of 128 to lasal mountain loop is worth the ride. All pavement but a beautiful ride through the mountains. It looks like your in Colorado. We hit a few side trails that were covered in snow and white aspen tree's but it was fun. Hells revenge was really fun to ride on. We also hit chickens corner. It was ok but not worth 27miles each way in my opinion especially after doing these other rides first. Although kane creek was a beauty of a road. Food, the blue pig had good BBQ and the outdoor gear shop lets you fill up camel backs for free. Good luck and have fun.

    Thanks for the tip! Onion Creek was not on my list, but I'm looking for shorter easy rides with the wifey on the back.

    Onion creek would be perfect for that! I would take it back until it makes a big Y at the end of the long field. Lasal mtn loop would be great also but its a bit longer. Kane creek is also a nice pretty and easy drive.

    Hi Rocky;



    I was just down there 2 weeks ago. Had a great adventure.

    https://tw200forum.com/index.php?/top...ure-ride-moab/

    A ride that we took would be great for riding double. Highway 313 is paved to the end (about 26 miles). Along the way are some great panoramas. You will see the Montitor and Merrimac. There are several scenic pull outs. At the end of the highway is Dead Horse Point State Park, which offers some awesome views of the Canyon from the top. It is a great place to take a lunch and have a picnic. The chipmunks will entertain you as you eat and relax.



    On the way back, on the right, is the Gemini Bridges road. It is gravel and in pretty good shape. It will take you all the way down to Highway 191.



    Happy Trails

    Rocky, Just got back today from 12 days in Moab area. left on the 8th , wish I would have known another "T-dub'er" was around I would have liked to ride some trails with you.



    Put over 500 miles of trail rides in, the wife put in +230 miles on her bike. I will download pictures and post our adventure this week, The pictures don't show how awesome Moab riding is. Those Black Diamond sections of trails don't look so tough in pictures.

    Not to worry, I ended up cancelling the trip.... wife had to have knee surgery instead. By the time I can get away it will be too hot.
