Re: Moab . 101
I've done Behind The Rocks and I personally like it a great deal but I would be VERY reluctant to take anyone without a great deal of experience on it. I did take a group of extremely experienced folks on it one time and in spite of the group's overall experience there was some damage to several of the vehicles. Most of the challenging obstacles are going down and that tends to spook a lot of folks that are fearless going up. Plus, it's gotten a good deal more difficult in the last few year, as have a number of the other trails in Moab. The first major obstacle comes very shortly after leaving the highway and it will scare the life out of most people (it's a very challenging uphill). If you decide to do it and can't make it past that initial obstacle you can always turn around and go do Steelbender, which isn't far from Behind The Rocks.
I agree 100% that nearly all trails in Moab have gotten significantly more difficult due to all the traffic itís getting. I particularly blame the throttle happy Razors. I also agree on Jimís assessment of BTR. Iíve not done it but have been to White Knuckle and I was spooked just watching others come down it.
