There's so many trail options out there - I don't have much on the UTV side because I never tried those. That being said, it's worth noting that many of the trails can take a good portion of the day so you might not have time to do a hike and a trail - just depends on the trail itself.Good morning all and thank you for your help.
Taking a trip to Moab the last week of April 23, just myself and my dog. I will be taking my Gladiator Overland which has 2" of lift and 35's.
My plan is to use my Gladiator for light trails for a couple days and rent a UTV for a couple days.
I picture my days leaving the hotel early and going for a hike with my dog and then finding a good scenic easy to drive trail so I can enjoy the views and takes lots of photos also with my pup.
I was hoping someone could give me an idea which hikes and UTV/Jeep trails are good to pair together in the same day. Also keep in mind there will be a dog with me at all times.
Also keeping the trail driving on the easy side would be great as I'd like to drive home without any damage to my jeep.
any and all advice appreciated!
Chicken's Corners is a good trail - scenic, not particularly difficult, and dogs are allowed. I believe Gemini Bridges and Hell Roaring Rim would also be good choices, though HRR can be fun to navigate as it's easy to get turned around on that one. Dome Plateau is another pretty easy one. If you want to mix in something a little bit harder (and, with your set up you should have no issues with them) Seven Mile Rim and Fins n Things are great trails, too.
I think I've only been there about 13 times and still haven't done all the trails I want to.
