    Default Hole in the Rock Trail, Utah - Oct 9-12



    Meet on 9 Oct around 5 pm at the gas station at Hallís crossing (https://maps.app.goo.gl/Ucv8Cz6YNqsK5mp66?g_st=ic). Everything online says the pumps operate 24/7 but I will find a phone number to confirm. Head onto the trail that night and camp. Two more nights on the trail (10th and 11th), and we should make it back to the trailhead before noon on the 12th. From here people can head home or continue the adventure (not planned). I will likely have to start trucking it back to Denver.

    Some info, this trial is not to be confused with Hole in the Rock ROAD that is near Escalante:
    https://www.rme4x4.com/threads/halls...he-rock.45120/

    Note that this trail is out and back, about 65 miles total. Come prepared with water and fuel if you need it. I will have a 5 gal jerry can but will probably need it. Trail is completely remote with zero cell service. I will have my Zoleo satellite communicator with me for emergencies or if someone wants to check in with their family.

    FRS: Ch 6, code 14

    Calendar invite is up, please RSVP. I think this should be limited to 5 vehicles based on the small size of the campsites we stayed at last time.

    Hi Steve...I marked as a maybe on the calendar. Jen is out of town for the week, and I need to discuss the details with her. I've got close to 14hr drive towing the cj to get down there...Be much easier if Jen can tag along and we could stop for some MTBing on the way back, but kind of guessing its going to be me going solo for a 'quick trip'.

    Hi Steve....I can probably make this work, but it will just be me solo. But....how are we feeling about such a remote trip with only 2 vehicles? Before we get too far into prep, are we committed to the trip if its only the 2 of us. Is there anyone else that has been interested but holding out?

    I'd love to but I have two knocks against me - 1) I'd only be able to bring my car to the trailhead and 2) the trip would need to be pushed back as I'll be out of state until at least the 19th.

    While I hope this trip works out for it to happen as planned, I am still interested but it'll be next season before I get the jeep off of my to-do list.

    c'mon - who's on the fence for this trail?!?!

    I have a friend who wants to come as well, so that will make 3 Jeeps, which is a number I'm comfortable with

    Sounds good...I'll start my trip prep. I would be hitting the road on morning Sat 10/8...would either spend the night with a friend in SLC, or try to get a little closer and camp/motel in Price or Green River. I will shoot you a PM with my phone contact info so it will be easier to communicate once we are on the road.

    Sounds like the schedule won't work for you, but if it changes, you are more than welcome to ride along with me. Can't guarantee a comfy plush ride, or even dry and warm...I must have missed somewhere, but why is the jeep out of commission.

    I am heading south in a couple hours....If anything changes with the plan, let me know. I figure playing around in Moab for a couple days is my back-up plan. Although I should have access to the forum, its probably easiest from this point forward to contact me via text/cell....See you both there.

    We'll post a true run report when done, but I found a bit of cell service up above camp as we enjoy our first evening on trail.

    We are off....pushed out today instead of staying a 3rd night. At some point a formal run report will get done...but all jeeps and people are in good shape.
