One of the things on the top of my husband’s bucket list was to attend Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. This year, we finally made that happen!
Easter Jeep Safari is a 9 day event consisting of day long trail rides in your own four-wheel vehicle. You can choose to do these trails on your own (based on your level of experience), or choose to do guided tours in which experienced guides lead you along the trail routes. You take your own food and drinks and spend most of the day driving over obstacles big and small. We had so much fun just spending time as a family and enjoying the trails riding in the Jeep. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking in Moab. This event is sponsored by the Red Rock 4-Wheelers Inc, one of the local four wheel drive clubs of Moab.
You can choose one of the many different trail options each day, and its completely up to you as to whether you run trails every day or take some days to take in the sights. What’s nice about the trails is, there is something for everyone! Is it your first time? No problem! There are trails that just about any experience level can drive with no problem. My favorite part of the guided tours is that everyone is so willing to help each other out, whether you need a spotter or if something breaks, there is always someone there to help you out.
When you’re not out driving the trails yourself, head over to potato salad hill and watch all of the brave souls try to conquer the obstacles. The week of the event, on Thursday and Friday there is a vendor and information show that is free to the general public. It’s all set up in the Spanish Trail Arena. Friday night, there is a HUGE raffle drawing for all kinds of prices donated by all of the vendors in the show. Each person who registers gets a complimentary ticket for the drawing. There is also a Jeep display where you can see all of the concept vehicles Jeep created. Moab is a great place for them to generate ideas for production vehicles.
We had so much fun, we are already planning our trip back for next year!
