For our 5th day in Moab, we decided to take the day off from wheeling and do a little sightseeing on foot in the ever beautiful Arches National Park. And, being that the Delicate Arch is essentially the symbol, the icon that represents, that would be our main destination for the day.
Day 4 of our Moab Easter Jeep Safari would take us up to sandstone plains of the Poison Spider Mesa Trail. By far one of the most famous trails in the Moab area, Poison Spider Mesa features steep climbs up slickrock faces, off camber shoots, technical v-notch sections and fun sand dunes to rip down.
For Day 3, it was time to kick things up a notch and challenge both Jeep and Driver alike on the Cliffhanger Trail. Right from the get go, this trail has big ledges you have to decend, tough rock gardens you have to climb and never racking narrow shelf roads that hug the side of towering cliff faces.
Our second day in Moab was spent over at AREA BFE where we attended the Project-JK Moab Madness event hosted by Full-Traction Suspension, Superior Axle & Gear and Superchips. After spending the afternoon playing on the Green Day Trail, our gracious hosts treated us to an awesome burgers and hotdog BAR-B-Q!!
For our first official day out in Moab, we wanted to break everyone in on something not too difficult but, something that would give them an idea of what to expect for the rest of the week.
