I know this is isnt exactly climbing but I was hoping to head out to the Moab area for the first time at the end of March/Early April for a 2-3 day backpack trip.

I've done the obvious searches but I was hoping to get some input from people who know the area pretty well. Where are some good spots that are going to be relatively crowd free? Also, if I could avoid the whole reservation process too that would be great as well. I will likely be taking a 2 wheel drive vehicle, so will that be a huge limiting factor? How is finding drinking water this time of year? Are there good spots that are outside the obvious NP's?

Id love to hear any suggestions for good areas or loops hikes any of you might have done recently.

Thanks in advance!

It's a bit from Moab, but I really like the south end of Capitol Reef. john strand
