Hello all, some of you may recall my Moab trip posted last year the last week of April. This one is similar, except we will be including St George for the trip.
I'm thinking we either leave Monday (4/21 early we will lose a day doing this) or Sunday (save a day, but need to book hotel somewhere around Bakersfield or towards Las Vegas). Likely if we drive on Monday will ride Tuesday in St George, then head to Moab for Wed, thurs, Fri, Sat, then drive sat afternoon and evening to St george, ride a quicky on Sunday and then head back (still a 12 hour drive).
This is an intermediate and up ride with St George tending to be more xc, and Moab tending to be more rocky and advanced. At least 140 mm of travel is recommended, though 160 mm is more fun.
Possible rides in St George: Barrell Roll, Zen, JEM Hurricane epic loop, bearclaw poppy and many others.
Possible rides in Moab Mag 7 and Porcupine Rim (definitely). I would like to get in Portal (its one of the famous trails I haven't done yet). and many others.
The possibility of going to Fruita exists as well, we will consider this, but by no means is it mandatory
