While we were in Moab we decided to rent an ATV and try the Hell’s Revenge Trail. Boy, let me tell you it was scarier than I thought it would be.
We were staying at the KOA Rv Park down the road. A lot of people were going out on ATVs and Jeeps. This was something we had always wanted to do. We made some inquiries and decided on the best place to rent for the day.
The ATV came from a local shop, The Moab Tour Company A really great place downtown. We got a Razor 900 with two seats. It was a cute little thing with lots of power. We forgot to take our helmets along, big mistake.
They gave us a choice of all the trails to choose from according to the level of intensity. I was all for the easy ones, but Paul had more courage than I did.
We set out down the road in town to the designated entrance to our trail. The trail was called Hells Revenge. That should have tipped me off to the level this trail was.
It started out from a flat parking lot and went directly into a vertical path on, what they call, slippery rock. Instantly I was petrified. I looked over and Paul didn’t look any more relaxed than me.
After we rode around for a while it became clear why this was such a popular trail. The scenery was breathtaking. There were some very easy parts and some very tricky part, but overall it was a wonderful trail.
At the end of the trail, I think we took a wrong turn. We seemed to be driving where no one else was which seemed odd. Eventually, we ended up back at the parking lot.
On the ride home, it started to rain so we stopped for a burger at Milt’s Stop and Eat That was one of the best burgers ever. Once the rain was over we took the ATV back and reminisced about the exciting time we had.
I know that it was slightly difficult on the intensity scale, but I’m glad we did it.
