That's a good time of year to be there. We did it last October.

Are you planning to camp? If so, where?

You've listed "Armor" and "Sliders" as requirements. Do you know yet which trails you're expecting to need this on?

Is this a trip a beginner could do? I have a 2017 Tacoma TRD Off Road Truck with OME 2 inch lift, BFG 265-75 -R16 Tires and front armor plate and sliders.

We're interested but it doesn't seem like there is much activity from the original poster.

Yes, im curious as to why there is no reply. Maybe the trip is cancelled but he didn't post it yet?

It doesn't look like OP has any activity since March.

What do you guys think about creating your own? I'll be happy to help.

We're going to go in October but prefer to roll with 1 or 2 other rigs. Our first time. Some key items we want to hit are Chicken Corners and a few other moderate trails. Definitely want to disperse camp. MAYBE one camp spot in Moab if we can reserve one for the first night upon arrival in Moab. Then spend the next three days exploring. We aren't heavy partiers, we're low key. Just want some good trails, good camp fire, good stories, and enjoy ourselves. Oh, but we definitely want to hit up Moab Brewery when in town. :) If any others are interested I can create an event. I'd like to be IN Moab by the evening of October 1st. We'll likely take a few days getting there, camping along the way. No big rush. So probably a meetup of 8am on 10/2 to start out with Chicken Corners and Moab Brewery that evening and then whatever exploration we care to do for the next few days. So likely 10/2 - 10/5.

That sounds like a great plan.

If you're not opposed to camping on the trail, look into that for chicken corners. That's what I want to do the next time I'm out there.

If you're into base camping, you can usually find something along Dalton Wells Road or Willow Springs road. The latter is actually a back way into arches national park.
