Hey,
Just wanted to say a late thanks to Robbie and Chris, Bill and Dan.
I loved being three days out like that. I hope will have it next year as well.
I used full tank plus 2 x 20L and came back to Moab with the needle on empty but no light.

I have a small group thinking about running the Kokopelli. Is there a good guide book or map that you would suggest?

I have the Moab East Trails topo map. I picked mine up at the Moab visitors center. It is the purple one, there are a set of 3 or 4, each one a different color.

It has the entire Kokopelli trail, which is a made up of several trails.

www.latitude40maps.com, is the maker of the maps.

Hope this helps.

What would you rate this trail? (traildamage ratings) Or compare the tough sections too? I have wheeled a lot in Moab so it could be compared to those.

Pretty breezy, probably a 3 out 10 mostly except for post Top of the world section and Rose Garden Hill. Maybe a 6 out of 10 overall?

Rose Garden is tough but you are going down hill. The route is right/center-right all the way down.

The section post Top of the World can be narrow and washed out, potentially needing some rock stacking at times, then there is a ledgy climb that may require some creative angled climbing if you are without A-trac or lockers. But it is doable if you are open in 4x4 low.

I also meant to tell you about the first section between Cisco Landing and Fish Ford camp area. Just as you pass Fish Ford camp area and cross over the paved road back to dirt. There is a Koko sign to the left and a well traveled road straight ahead. You want to stay straight here. This is the only time you will not follow the koko signs.. going left at this juncture would take you to single track and is not passable via 4x4 vehicle.

Then as you meander straight west, you will find you are in a nice open valley, their will be a faint right turn not to far maybe half a mile or so, looks like the road less traveled but you want to turn right here, the road more traveled pics up again and is obvious, as it takes you north into Cisco landing.

The gate may be open or closed. Remember the rule for gates, if open-leave open, if closed..open-pass through-close behind you..

Cisco takes you to 128, you travel about 5 miles or so on this highway before seeing the koko sign on your right. Along the way you will encounter another gate in this section, same drill.

Hope this helps.

Default Cruise Moab 2012

Hey guys, I am new here, my name is Ryan as you can probably tell from my username. I am very interested in doing the 2012 Kokopelli double over-nighter. I have been watching the Cruise Moab site for registration to open but I was wondering if you guys do any sort of pre-registration since your group is running the event?

Just read through the thread and it looks a great trip. Hopefully I will get to join you guys this year and if not have a great time and I'll see you in Moab!

Ryan

Hey - fun to see my rig here. Those biker babes were hotties!
Ryan - that was my first time on Kokopelli. I rode in the cruiser in the first picture with Tobascofish. I bought it from him a few weeks later. Kokopelli was a blast - bunch of fun guys to hang out with for a few days and stunning scenery.
