    Hi All,

    We just got back from 4 days on the White Rim trail, mountain biking and doing a bit of relaxing, and was wondering if anyone has used their inclinometer and knows what the climb and descent angles are on Murphy's Hogback and Hardscrabble?

    We had a great time, the Taco did very well, and the road was dry and clear despite warnings of flooding by the NPS.

    Last i recall and ill see if i can find pics if heading from east to west, the ascend to Murphy is about 18-22% and descent about the same slightly higher in some spots, think my pic showed 26% down hill at one of the points.

    Moab is awesome. White Rim trail isn't challenging and I bet a stock Tacoma 4x4 could make it without damage.

    Some spots are interesting but overall nothing complicated that stock cant do, tires though would be good to have that are better than stock, i did mine BFG2KO and was great, only engaged low gear once.

    Anything on the WR, I've only done on Dirt Bikes and MTB. It's very scenic but not really challenging. You can find more challenges in Beef Basin or Lockhart Basin.

    Nice! I’m definitely doing WR next time. Every year I go most of the trails are closed due to hazards :(
