We aired down in the parking area by the start of Moab Rim trail. The parking lot was mostly empty. After airing down, we started going up Moab Rim. It did not take long to get to the first obstacle which is called Devil's Crack. We both had to try a few times to get up and over the obstacle. We did get a lot of pictures with wheels off the ground in the Devil's Crack.
After that, the trail leading up to the Z-Turn was slow going but not very hard at all. It was off-camber in many spots, so we just had to pick the line we thought would be the best.
At the Z-Turn we both stopped and walked the obstacle. We both chose the same line to get up Z-Turn, but for the very top of Z-Turn where Matt went more to the left then Niko. Niko picked up a person who then took pictures for us. He rode with Niko on the rest of Moab Rim.
After the Z-Turn we had to make our way up to a steep incline with lots of small steps. On the way up, we both had no problems with the small steps.
We stopped at an overlook stop for a short break, then continued to the "Y" in the road.
At the "Y" we went to the left and went to the Dome. Matt and Niko both went over the top of the Dome through the tire test stop near the very top. It was a steep and fun climb to the top.
On the way to the end of Moab Rim and the second overlook we both went down Sand Hill. It was fun going down Sand Hill but I don’t think a Jeep would be able to go up the hill, because the sand was very deep. After Sand Hill we went to the overlook. It looks out over the Moab Valley, and with the trees starting to turn yellow it was beautiful to look at.
After the overlook we returned the way we came back to the start of Moab Rim. For most of Moab Rim trail, we had no issues except for the one spot where Matt almost rolled his Jeep. It was the area that had the small steps and was very steep. Matt tried a different line going down one of the steps and almost went over the side of the cliff, but luckily he did not.
Going down the Z-Turn was fun and we didn’t have any trouble with the obstacle.
At Devil's Crack, Matt and Niko had to try two times to get the right line to make it down the Crack. Back at the parking area, we stopped for lunch and a break. It's an awesome trail!
