On Friday, we woke up ready to wheel. After grabbing a quick breakfast at Moab Diner, we headed to the first trail: Fins and Things.

Fins and Things

Difficulty Ratings:

Guide to Moab, UT Backroads and 4WD Trails: Difficult
Jeep Rating: 3-4 (Out of possible 10)

Fins and Things is one of the easier Jeep trails in Moab. The reason the 4×4 guidebook rates it as difficult is because the book encompasses trails for bikes and ATVs and UTVs, and this trail isn’t exactly easy for those vehicles. On this trail, we saw a stock JLU Rubicon doing all the obstacles with ease. Fins and Things is a fun trail, and all the guys on the trip let their girlfriends and wives drive. The scariest part for me on this trail was going down a steep hill, but that’s my biggest fear while off-roading in general. However that hill can be easily conquered by a stock Jeep. Just don’t hit the brakes too hard! Fins and Things also has a Jeep Badge of Honor, so we were all able to check in and claim our first Badge!

Top of the World was a pretty annoying trail to go through, with only one or two cool and challenging obstacles. However, the view at the top was breathtaking and totally worth the annoying bumpiness of the trail. This was a two way trail so going uphill was the same route as coming back down. We got some AMAZING shots of our Jeep’s and us at the edge of a cliff overlooking a massive canyon and the La Sal Mountains. This is also rated difficult in the 4×4 guidebook, but it’s probably doable in a stock Jeep Rubicon since there are bypasses for everything.

After Top of the World, we headed to the cabins where we stayed for the night before the wedding and night of the wedding. The venue, Whispering Oaks Ranch, had multiple cabins for wedding guests and their families.
