Re: Moab before the Summit - 2019 Edition

Yes they are building a new Hilton property in Moab, the "Hoodoo Moab, Curio Collection by Hilton". Opens in the fall, and looks to be even nicer/more expensive.

Sadly, it is built on the site of the old Red Rock Lodge, which used to be one of the most "affordable" motels in Moab, and was the site of annual gatherings of the Isuzu group (I used to wheel a built Trooper).

I almost always camp in Utah, but the Red Rock Lodge was my escape whenever there were flash-flood capable rain storms. Nice hotel, cheap, and almost always had vacancies.

Yep, and easy walking distance from many restaurants, shops etc. We used to take over that place, had many good times there socializing into the evening... or later.

Onion Creek is probably the most scenic trail I've driven anywhere near Moab and it's driveable by a passenger car in good weather. I'd highly recommend that one as well, the whole family will love it. You wind through a tight canyon with high red rock walls around you that have lots of hoodoos, spires, balancing rocks, etc everywhere. Then you go through an area that reminds me of Death Valley National Park - the mineralization here makes streaks of gray, blue, purple, red, and green in the canyon walls. Finally you climb out of the canyon and have amazing views from atop a ridge. There are a lot of creek crossings, which will just be a trickle next month. The trail is off of highway 128, around mile marker 22 or so, so if you come in 128 from I-70 and it's not dark it's definitely worth it to turn and drive the trail at least to the top of the ridge. It will take you a little over an hour to go up and come back down. No need to air down for it, and you won't need 4WD either.

This brings up a question for my OCD personality and I know this doesn't bother some... but there are car washes in Moab aren't there?

I don't recall any full service car washes, but there are a couple of DIY spray n wash places, and probably a couple of gas stations with washes too.

I was honestly making a joke, but I do prefer the power wash DIY spray bays! Bonus!

Will do as well!
The year I went to the Summit (year #2 ), and not to sound like a creep, but they had some high school girls team of some kind doing car washes. They got money from me, and everyone else. Good idea by them!

For these types of trail runs, what is the minimum good tire tread is?
Even if you’re just doing mild trails, conditions can change and there’s always surprises, so all-terrain to mud terrain type tires, with larger lugs and voids will get you through a wider variety of situations than bald/pavement type type tires. While slickrock is indeed wonderfully grippy it can also be very steep and interspersed with sand, gravel, large loose rockpiles or waterholes.

@CRAW ,
The Virginian Motel has a wash station for vehicles/bikes free of charge and is conveniently located across the street from the Moab Diner, which happens to have the best breakfast in town (my opinion).
