Is anyone going down to Moab for Jeep Safari? I just signed up for Poison Spider (Thur), Strike Ravine (Fri) and Tip Toe Behind The Rocks for Saturday w/ Porcupine Rim as my second choice.

I'm going to assume if you signed up for Behind The Rocks that you know what you're getting yourself into.

Summary: The 3 rated Tip Toe version of the Behind the Rocks trail offers most of the same scenery that the more extreme 4+ version does with much less potential of vehicle damage.

Location: The Tip Toe version of the trail leaves Highway 191 about 13 miles south of Moab just after climbing a long hill on the highway. The exit is on the right going to the west.

Scenery: The scenery includes the unique weathered sandstone fins and domes just behind the rock cliff that faces Moab. There are several opportunities to pier down into Kane Creek Canyon which bounds the area on the southwest.



The Trail: The Tip-Toe version of the trail allows participants to view the High Dive, Upchuck, and White Knuckle Hill obstacles of the more difficult 4+ version with much less risk of damaging their vehicles. There are a few minor drainage crossings with exposed rock ledges that will require some attention to climb with stock equipment.

I think I'll stick with the real deal (assuming I can find anybody to do it with me again since pretty much everybody I've taken on it sustained some degree of damage). I think I may have some takers lined up for a May trip that have no idea what they'll be getting into (I'll have to play dumb though when they ask me why I recommended it). :)

we think way to much a like... been there done that with a few on our Colorado trails. Played dumb, but knowing that if they knew what trail we were taking them on they'd back out.. yet only to have them boast and pat them selves on the back on what they've just accomplished... yes I know this feeling ;)
