We started at behind the rocks and went down Pritchett, then rode over to kane creek and looped back to the start at behind the rocks.

We turned around in a few spots and went up some of the obstacles as well as down... Good stuff... hard work.

Re: MOAB - NADS riding for the week

If you head out past Chicken Corners on Lockhart, you eventually get to where the road goes away from the river. Just beyond there it gets REALLY squiggly on the map. Good times at that point, with some challenging ledges, rocks, and sand. We rode up from Monticello toward Moab on Lockhart, then back down 190 to Monticello. It took the better part of a day. The gas range for some of your bikes could be an issue though.

Yes, we looked at doing that route... most also aren't plated so a bit dicey on the road.

Re: MOAB - NADS riding for the week

Ohhh... good point about the plating.

Do you have to be plated for the dirt roads in that area? I didn't even think about it when we went since we were all plated.

Don't worry about 5MOH, it's only 8 miles. Actually it's not all that hard, there are really only a couple difficult technical spots. The biggest thing with 5MOH is how much energy it takes out of you in a very short distance.

Now if you want to make it a really silly day start way down south of Temple Mountain Rd (at Goblin Valley Rd). From there work your way up to the south end of the VJ Trail, then take the Orange Trail to the Red Trail, through 5MOH and then follow back to your trucks.

I don't know if you guys have been to Moab before, but don't miss the Sovereign area trails.
