JMonroe... as you know, what is tight to some is a cake walk for others. I would definitely classify this on the tighter side but there were some fairly large rigs in there. There are a number of other places in or near town. You may want to check out Portals, it is perhaps the nicest one and sits fairly far back off the main drag.

Have a blast exploring... there is a lifetimes worth of trails for every level of off-roader. Not sure of your abilities but if you want a real good taste of the Moab slick rock on a trail that is very doable with just a little bit of 4wd driving experience, just on the side of town is Sand Flat Recreation Area, go have fun on "Fins and Things". Hell's Revenge is up there too but that requires a higher degree of skill. If you have it then that is an epic 'must not miss' trail. Then stop at Milt's at the bottom of the hill for a burger and shake.

I can see right now we didn't spend enough time in Moab. Canyonlands had some great roads for low/medium level Jeep'n and we need to go back...maybe not this summer. I think I could live in Moab and drive the Shafer Trail Road/White Rim Road(cant' remember it's name...across from the Island in the Sky Visitor/Welcome Center) every day and not get tired of the view. Here's a pic we took...the others are internet pics. What a place! Sorry, I couldn't get it to up size.

X3 on Portal. Great place. Make sure you go into Moab and pick up the off-road book - well worth it!

Arches was great in late September - go early and try to avoid the tour buses...
