Exploring the Monitor and Merrimac trail in stock Jeeps during the Moab Easter Jeep Safari 2016 #EJS2016Posted in Moab Experience: 2016 on March 31, 2016
Lots of people assume you have to have a crazy-built 4x4 to come to Moab and have fun. Maybe that’s partially our fault for focusing mostly on hardcore 4x4s and more challenging trail systems during the Easter Jeep Safari week. But truth be told, you can enjoy epic scenery and have a ton of fun behind the wheel in even a stock Jeep. As long as you have 4x4 and a decent amount of ground clearance, jaw-dropping views can be yours. For proof, we slid our little ’89 YJ in behind trail leader, Kevin Hawkins, as he led a group of stock Jeeps through the Monitor and Merrimac trail just northwest of downtown Moab. Enjoy some of the scenery of this 12-mile loop and start planning your next adventure. And keep coming back to check more Moab Experience coverage here at fourwheeler.com.
