Cruising past scenic canyons and red rock, Mick snaked the group through the trail, heading south towards the headwaters of Kane Springs Canyon. During one of our stops, Mick got out of the his Jeep to tell us a story about how just a few years ago the “greenies” wanted to close down this trail to motorized vehicles. After thousands of dollars in legal fees and a nasty game of ping-pong court, the 4-wheelers came out on top. Because of their fight we are able to drive on through these old mining roads today and connect with other public land. “Thank You” Red Rock 4-Wheelers for helping keep trails open for off-road use.
As we entered Area BFE territory, the Bunny Run turned into an egg hunt. The group was set loose to play on the hardcore trails inside the park and find their own adventure. While doing some exploring of our own, we came across a group of Canadians that had just rolled in from Alberta. About 20 members from their Red Deer Jeep Club drove 27 hours and over 2100 miles to come play in Moab. They extremely happy to finally roll their rigs off the trailer and put them on the rocks.
It really goes to show that Moab is a world class 4×4 destination.
