    I already have a few trails planned but I'd be interested to hear if there are any others you all would like to see offered. With our permit we can only run the official Jeep Safari routes so if you need to see what those are look here: http://www.rr4w.com/Trails-Home.cfm

    EDIT: What we really need is trail leader volunteers. If you have a trail run you'd be willing to lead, post up. The thing that limits the trails we offer is the need for trail leaders.

    Trail leaders get trail boss shirts....

    Friday = Crack n back
    Saturday = Pritchett`e
    Sunday = Behind the Rocks

    Thats what I would like to sign up for. Anything else I'll do independantly (hell's revenge, rusty nail, poison spider, etc)

    I liked the Hell's invasion this year so I was thinking about doing that again. However, I know some would prefer to avoid the large group. Crack n Back would be a good one for an alternate Friday trail.

    Can you combine rusty nail and crack and back? We could call it Rusty Crack........
    Then Pritchett and Behind the Rocks. Maybe a Moab Rim night run. I could do a full day at BFE. Last year I had fun doing GreanDay with a detour out the entrance to whatever that other trail was.

    I led the rusty crack trail once. It was a good time, but I really hate that no left turn thing.

    .
    Be nice to have something fun offset Hells. Personally like to do different than starting on Poison Spider. I'd like to do Flat iron, havent done that

    the Rusty Crack/crack n back could split into 2 @ the crack if need be. Going to be a group that doesnt want the left turn, some that will. Maybe a good sunday run to separate it from Prichete'e on Saturday and area BFE on Friday.

    Moab rim looks like a good Saturday run

    Yeah, Brent beat me to it. We do have a Rusty Crack trail run option. I think we did it in '15.

    When I led it, we did Rusty Nail first (so you go through the correct way) then came backwards back from the crack. You'd have to split up first.

    I'd like to lead a group through Pritchett then backwards through Behind the Rocks next year, but we'll have to see how things work out between then and now.

    That's what I should be asking. Post up if you have a trail you'd like to run and would be willing to lead.

    The thing that limits the trails we offer is getting trail leaders for them. If you lead a trail, you get a trail boss shirt.....

    I would be a part of the Pritchet and behind the rocks group.
    I will probably be on Hells since I think I'm bringing my family down and that's an easy trail to coordinate multiple vehicles on because I don't have 4 seats in my ride. Or crack and back since I can borrow a vehicle for that trip too.

    I would do the Rusty nail to the crack and out in a heart beat but I don't think there is a way for me to get my family rides with someone my wife would trust with at least one of my kids on that trail. FYI she wouldn't trust me with them just for reference

    After nine trips to Moab (8 for Blazer Bash) I think I may finally do Prichett if it is offered in 2017.

    I might be able to lead this again, Hurrah Pass/Chicken Corners, and actually run the correct trail. lol
