None of those trails should be an issue with regard to your vehicle!

EDIT: they won't be boring either...your should have lots of fun!!! Perfect choices!

Great!
I will be insterested on doing other trails after CM is over. So if anyone has suggestions on trails or showing me trails on May 3rd-May 6th it will be great.
I have the following suggestion already:

"I would head into the hinterlands.....Beef Basin, or Lockhart Canyon....are you traveling alone? If you are with at least one other truck I would do Hole in the Rock trail (not the dirt road of the same name)....it is epic!"

Damn, that's a sweet truck!!!

You have some good trails picked, but you can run virtually any of our mainstay trails with the way you are built. Kane Creek Canyon would be especially fun.

You're going to love Moab.

Having never done the trek west by car, it looks like I can cross over on either 70 or 80.
Can someone give me a pointer on choosing the quickest route not only in distance which I can get on Google, but easier to drive by myself.

On this trip, I am not looking to make the trip interesting. I just want to get to BFE as simple and quickly as possible.

Tx

2nd that Steve! I've driven from Denver to PA and back on that route and it's likely the most direct.

BTW...Upstate NY is NOT NYC....by any means....Rhyary, lookin' forward to meeting you there! You bringing any Genesee with you ? I'll likely have some Singletrack around if you like some CO microbrew....Good luck on the "Iron Butt" trip!

to all,
I am sadly back home after unforgettable drive to Moab.
To all I met, many thanks for your hospitality. I got to do the following trails:
Monday - Chicken Corner with Joel and Dino (photographers for Toyo 4x4 mag)
Gemini Bridges with Joel and Dino

Tue - Metal Masher led by Furnum, and I got to recover Tom using my new to me setup of Dixon Bates tow hooks and master pull rope.
Wed/Thu overrnight led by Curt, entertained by Jimmy, and fed by Jeramey
Fri - Porcupine Rim led by Corbet
Sat - Fins and things led by Romer
Sun - Arches, first the road and in the PM we took a back trail into Arches led by Olef, one of Area BFE owners.
Monday - Elephant Hill with Jonathan
Tue/Wed - White Rim with Jonathan - camping at Tylor canyon
Thu - heading home 600 miles east
Fri - 1150 miles driving east
Sat - about 350 miles getting home 1pm.

Overall, - unforgettable journey.

Great to hear you made it home save and enjoyed yourself. Sounds like you hit a lot of trails and took full advantage of your time you had. Next year you will need to bring some more people from your club and you can be there tour guide.
