Onion Creek, up to Fisher Valley, in my opinion, would be very doable with AD1. As you can tell from the pictures, its fairly straight forward without any major obstacles. There is a sizable elevation gain of about 200 feet before Fisher Valley. But it can be accomplished without 4 wheel low. I would not take an AD1 beyond Fisher Valley though. I'd return the way you came at that point.


Beautiful scenery. A side note. There is a gorgeous spot for lunch just before the hill climb up to Fisher Valley. Shade from cottonwood trees and the creek running by. Very nice.

Two wheel drive SUV would have no problem up to Fisher Valley as long as there is no rain. ADI, heck ya, Go for it.

I am in Burlington, Co tonight, 1k miles out and headed for Moab, Utah. Going to do a few things in the mountains and try to be in Moab the 7th or 8th. Would be very interested in routes or maps of the area for modest stuff.(I have my wife with me Is there anything in the park worth doing?
Any recommendations for motels in the area with a decent price.

Tks........Walt

Holiday Inn Express is always a safe bet on a good quality motel. But it can be pricey. We usually stay in a locally owned one on the north end of town called AArchway Inn.

Low budget, but still nice is the Super 8. They recently replaced all carpets in their rooms with pergo wood floors. An interesting idea.
