After shuttling some of the group to the Porcupine Rim trail that they had shuttled us to yesterday, we tried the section of the Sovereign trail and Cedar Mt trail accessed from Dalton Well Rd.  After a ride out the road recommended for 4wd's to the outer parking area, there was just a short ride to the section of Sovereign trail we had ridden previously.  Instead of reriding that section, we took a left and followed singletrack up a draw to a large slickrock formation.  The trail quickly gets back to single track with a few short ATV tracks mixed in.  After a stiff climb you come to an option to continue on the Sovereign trail down Richard's Ridge or climb a bit more up the Cedar Mountain trail to Garden Mesa.  We chose the climb and had a great time all the way down through the sometimes sandy Ann's Arroyo and along/down the rock ridges.  It was a great way to end a weekend in Moab (partially because you are already on your way back to I-70 whether it is to SLC or off to Colorado.
