Itinerary

Day 1: Klondike Bluffs

After introductions and the pre-trip meeting, you will shuttle to the Klondike Bluffs trailhead. This 10-mile out and back is a great warm up to your weekend. The trail offers up all the Moab staples: Jeep roads, sand, slick rock, and a tremendous view into Arches (your reward for the climb out there.) The return trip is a fast and furious downhill that will leave a smile on your face for the rest of the day. Time permitting; you will end the day with a short slick rock ride on one of the favorite trails, Monitor and Merrimac.

  • Total mileage: 10 miles
  • Terrain: Jeep road with no van support

Day 2: Porcupine Rim

A Moab classic awaits you today, a trail so full of ooh’s and ah’s (and maybe a few ouches) you will be talking about for years to come. A van shuttle brings you to the trailhead where you start off with a technical three-mile climb. You will gain about a 1000 feet before reaching the Rim and what is known as “High-Anxiety Point.” This overlook of Castle Valley, which sits 1500 feet below, never disappoints and definitely makes all the hard work worthwhile. But, the real fun begins after the high anxiety. You will descend 3000 feet in 10 miles, finishing at the Colorado River. Porcupine Rim has it all, rocky jeep road, fast singletrack, heart pumping climbs, stunning views, and an epic descent. It is the trail that makes Moab, well, Moab.

  • Total mileage: 29 miles
  • Terrain: Jeep road and singletrack with no van support

Day 3: Slickrock

A technical adventure unlike any you have ever seen sits high atop the Navajo Sandstone just above Moab. Arguably the most popular trail in Moab, the 12-mile Slickrock Trail loops around Negro Bill Canyon just outside of town. This classic Moab ride is very challenging and has extremely steep but short climbs. You will begin your ride on the practice loop, getting used to the terrain, and developing the skills you will need for the remainder of the trail. One thing is for sure; you will leave the Slickrock Trail with skills you may not have known you had. The unbelievable scenery will keep you motivated over the many tough miles. Views of the La Sal mountain and Colorado River will surprise you as you snake along the Slickrock.

  • Total mileage: 12 miles (both options)
  • Terrain: Jeep road with no van support
