The trails and scenery in Moab, UT is spectacular. You owe it to yourself to get “your-ticket-punched” in Moab. Once you go, you will be back many times.
Easter Safari is one of, if not the largest organized event in the United States for 4-Wheel Drive vehicles. The event runs for 9 days ending on Easter Sunday. There are no restrictions as to the manufacturer of vehicles but they need to have high ground clearance and a 2 speed transfer case. Most days they have 8 or more trails running and on “Big” Saturday” about 28 groups will depart Moab in a huge parade of 1000 vehicle or more. Some of the trails are just above 2WD. On the other extreme, there are tails that need lockers, big tires and winches. On Thursday and Friday there is a large vendor show. There is a raffle drawing Friday night.
Our plan is to do 4 days of trails rides. That will be more than enough for the first time! So we will use the weekend before Easter to travel to Moab. Everyone is on their own but we will help with travel routes and information. Then we will run a trail each day on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The Monday trail has been selected to help you get accustomed to the terrain and slickrock. On Tuesday we will increase the rating one notch and again Wednesday. Thursday we will take a day off from the trails to attend the vendor show or explore surrounding areas. Friday’s Trail rating will be the same as Wednesday or one step down. Friday evening you can attend the big raffle and perhaps you will walk away with a set of new tires or a winch. You can travel home on Easter Saturday and Easter (if you need more than one day).
What You Get: The price is per vehicle. We will assist you to sign up for 4 days on trails specially selected to increase your confidence as the challenge increase. It includes access to a vendor show with over 120 booths and national manufactures and a ticket for the big raffle.
We will accompany you on the trails in Moab and assist with logistics during the week to insure you find your registration materials, arrive in the right spot on time for your trail ride, and help with any difficulties on the trails. You will receive detailed plans to help you with travel logistics and to prepare for the upcoming adventure.
