Hey all, I am planning a trip out to the vegas area this summer. I am wanting to do a little bit of very light offroading (simple dirt roads... a few small obstacles) I will be driving my santa fe awd yeh yeh yeh.... it will be sold in the next year and a half when i pay this thing off. my question is though.. are there any really easy trails in death valley or around the vegas area that i could go on? even if they are dirt, gravel... i wanna do something out there. while im at it, what about through moab? ive heard there are some trails out there that a stock suv can do.

heres what im driving....




this is the time i wish i had just waited and bought another truck :damn:

there are tons of places you can take that. Lots of the mojave has criss cross roads. Death valley is the same. Get guide books and map your self a trip.

Check outTrailDamage.com for more info on different Colorado and Utah trails. It doesnt have to be an extreme road to get you somewhere amazing. Depending on the dates i can show you a few things.

you don't plan on going to remote areas with temps in excess of 110*f in a hyundai do you?

thanks guys. roast beef... i dont exactly want to go anywhere super remote. maybe a few miles off the beaten path... i know its not an offroad vehicle, which is why im limiting myself to a few miles and very very easy trails.

as long as you aren't doing anything beyond comparable to a paved road (just a plain dirt road), it wouldn't be a problem. keep in mind, your chances of getting a flat tire shoots way up. i don't know what your mechanical abilities are, but just take it easy and resist the urge to fool around and it wouldn't be a problem.

yeh i didnt plan on anything other than that. hmmm... come to think of it... i might try to see how far i can flex! i bet i can beat your sig! :nana: ive had to change a few flats before and i do the majority of the work on my car so i could most likely take care of the situation... if not... well... looks like i have a long wait for aaa. lol

has anyone here gone to the double arch in moab/arches n.p.? if so, is an easy drive (meaning i can get back there in my car)?


thanks!

thanks! yeh ive been researching a lot but you just dont get much cars like mine going to the arches so i cant be sure that i will get mine back there. plus, im having trouble finding coordinates to the trail heads. if i could just find a site that lists what arch and the trail head coordinates i will be in good shape.
