Moab trail work & rides

Utah

On this first day of fall, Moab just got a good soaking.

 

Unfortunately that might mean more rain for residents north of Denver. Floods have also done a little damage near the towns of Blanding and Hanksville.

 

But closer to Moab, although some dirt roads and trails experienced washouts, the local area has been relatively unscathed. With a forecast of clear skies and eighty-degree highs, this is the perfect time to hit the trail. Ride with Respect has opportunities to improve trails, and to enjoy them with others.

 

 

1. Rerouting Enduro Loop

 

South of White Wash, our crew is over half-way done with three reroutes. Each one of them will reduce erosion, while lengthening the trail. This past spring, BLM provided volunteer groups. This fall, so far RwR has received a pledge of help from three motorcycle clubs. We'll need additional volunteers in order to finish by the year's end.

 

If you bring drinking water and a raincoat, we'll bring work gloves, tools, and gourmet sandwiches. To schedule a half-day's work, please call me at 435-259-8334.

 

 

2. Maintaining Sovereign Trail

 

Over a decade ago, Dale Parriott began establishing Sovereign Trail System northward from Archview Resort. Last year, we finally reached Klondike Bluffs Road. The system now includes a four-wheeling loop dedicated to the men and women of law enforcement:

The Utah Peace Officers Association held an event with great success, and they've already scheduled another one for April 5th of next year.

 

With all this new development, we can't forget to keep the older trails in decent shape. In particular, RwR needs a hand to repaint the slickrock parts of Sovereign and Saltwash singletracks. Again, please call me at 435-259-8334.

 

 

In the afternoon, we can ride together. Playing is more fun after work is done!  Happy Trails -Clif

Wish I could get out there and help. Hope you get a good turnout.

 

In case someone isn't familar with Ride with Respect, they actually get results you can see and ride.
