Thinking of looking into a guide service for a trip to Moab this Spring. An experience not too extreme and with good scenery. Any recommendations?
The parks in the area are all really easy to get around yourself. You don't need to walk far to see great views.
Happy to give you suggestions.
Jeep rental easy and still plenty of spots you can get to without being on really bad roads.
What are you specifically looking for?
I'll give you some ideas. Do you want to see petroglyphs too?Thanks Jackie. We'll be at Portal RV resort (already have reservations) and towing our Jeep.
Looking for a day-trip adventure(s) on a Jeep trail(s). No imminent body damage nor do I want to fear for my life. Something with some good scenery or a destination, enough to get out and push the capabilities of the Jeep and driver.
The Jeep is a JK Wrangler (2-door) with AEV parts- bumpers, lift. It's on 33's, 3.73's, 6-speed. No lockers, but it does have a limited-slip. The rig has been all over Montana up in mining country over the years so we're not beginners, but we will be new to Moab, and smooth rock. It's got a winch.
Basically the worry is we don't want to spend our limited time on this trip driving all over to find and try something if we don't know it's going to be great. That's where I think a guide might help, but I've run into some good information on trails just reading online.
Curious what others may have done or if there as a specific service anyone can recommend.

Just make sure you don’t come around Easter. That is Jeep week, and everything with 50 miles is full.
Thanks for the reminder Larry, I think I bought the same book; It's probably on my bookshelf back home in CA.A few years back, when I was at Moab, I picked up an interesting book entitled Moab, UT Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails by Charles A. Wells. It has 55 trails with 60 maps, plus GPS waypoints. He also rates the trails as Easy, Moderate and Difficult. He also talks about specific National and State Parks, as well as some hints/suggestions on etiquette and techniques needed on many of these trails.
As you may gather, I found it very useful
