Any easy Moab trails?

My wife and I are taking a road trip sometime around September and will be passing through the Moab area. Are there any trails a couple of seniors can take in a bone stock 2019 ORP that would be fun but not beyond our vehicle's capability?

My favorite easy trail is also probably the longest: The White Rim. It's either a long day, or if you get a permit to camp, an over night trip. If you're a bookish type, I recommend Charles Wells: Guide to Moab, UT Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails by Charles A. Wells: Good Paperback (2000) | HPB Inc.

Yes, the Wells book is mandatory!

Any green or blue trail will be fine for the vehicle. Reds would depend; some are fine, others hardcore. They are better avoided on Trip 1.

The WRR is phenomenal. Best done in 2 days but I have done it on a short winter day in my Outback. I would go Mineral Bottom to Potash because if there is something going on, like a rock slide, or deep water (though nowadays there is no water anywhere!), it is much more likely to happen on the MB side so one can turn around quickly and not after 50-90 miles of offroading.

WrR requires day use permit, which is available online. Campsites are booked far in advance.

The White Rim trail is awesome, but for some routes a bit shorter, try: (all of these are no problem for your T4R ORP.)
- Long Canyon, on the way to Potash
- Gemini Bridges, west off of 191 7 or so miles north of Moab. Both of these first two trails end on the paved road on top of the mesa which leads to the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands NP.
- Hurrah Pass, south on Kane Creek Boulevard out of Moab. Gets tougher on the west side of Hurrah Pass, but the view from the pass is awesome, so worth going that far and turning around.
- The Schafer switchbacks, between Potash and the top of Island in the Sky. Good road, but a lot of exposure. Awesome scenery. No permit required, just the park entrance fee.
- The Willow Springs "back door" entrance to Arches NP. Turn east on a BLM road off 191 about 5 miles north of Moab. Joins the paved Arches road at Balanced Rock. A great way to get into Arches when the RV's are lined up for a half mile at the main entrance. Just before you get to Balanced Rock you can take a short side trip to Eye of the Whale Arch. A little rougher, but no problem for a stock T4R.

Have fun! I second getting the Wells book.
