I’m in Moab currently and have all day tomorrow for trails. What do you recommend based on your trip?
Personally, I like “scenic, not hard”. If that is you, consider chicken corners or shafer trail. Both listed in this thread.

if you want more badge of honor type stuff, you can try one of the easiest ….. fins and things……

Thanks. Drove Long canyon road up and back down, did shafer, then Gemini bridges. In town for fuel and food then headed back out. Probably try fins and things next.

Fins and things is easy. There are even signs that show hard this way and easy that way. You can choose either or. I did the hard ones and they weren’t hard at all.

If you have all day do Fins and Things as a warm up then do Golden Spike. The climbs on the slickrock are pretty incredible

I did Fins and Things this afternoon. Cut it close to finish before dark and could see rain in the distance. With not knowing the trail and no spotter this is as difficult as I want to do.

Is it ok to put some of my pictures here or should I do a separate thread?

The off chamber spot is where a lot of vehicles flip on their side. The danger is very real. I tell people, if you want to take a picture, come to a full stop and put your vehicle in park before fucking with your phone/camera. Black Bear pass is a trail where success or failed is determined by inches at times.
Ted, this spot you're talking about, is that the first part of that decent on "the steps", seems like a good place for my low center of gravity build, and to be aired down, sway disco, etc. :)

Didn't get to Fins and Things on my visit a few weeks ago. I did have a blast here:
