Have you ridden The White Rim Trail Moab?

If you have been to Moab and have ridden The White Rim Trail on a 650 or larger, tell me how hard you think it is. Think about the whole ride, not just the hardest or easiest parts. This rating would be in relation to anything else you have ridden anywhere on your 650+.

On a scale of one to six, one being a straight forward gravel road and six being the gnarliest thing you think you could ride on your 650+ tell me your rating by participating in this poll.

Rode it on a stock 08 KLR 650 with stock tires. Not all that hard at all. Beautiful and worthwhile.

what a great ride it is. I've done it a couple times, once on a loaded super enduro and once on a 450. Not particularly technical IF the weather doesn't turn sour. I imagine the dirt would pack up on you if it was muddy. Sand in some spots that can be tricky if it is too dry. Take plenty of water and be prepared for it to take longer than you think due to photo ops and such.

Started around on one of the trips at about 3pm. Wasn't the smartest move as about 3 hours of it was after dark. Made the trail hard to follow but what a sky!

from last year.

A buddy and I did it this June. I was riding an old 640 LC4 and my buddy on a 690 LC4. Maybe a 2.5 on your scale. There are a few rocky climbs and a short stream crossing when we rode it. Beautiful country. Bring lots of water because it's hot and there's not much shade. Well worth the trip. Air down but not too much because the rocks are sharp.

If you get down south as far as Bluff, be sure and stop by Comb Ridge Coffee. Best espresso in Utah and the blue corn pancakes are great any time of day.
