“Short chunky trail downhill and an easy loop back.”

From the central Moab Brand area parking lot, take the wide doubletrack path, which leaves the parking lot going east. In a few hundred yards, turn right to start onto the Lazy/EZ singletrack. Stay right on EZ when the Lazy joins in from the left. From there, the ride winds along the base of the ridge, with just enough rocks and tight turns to keep it fun.

After a little over a mile, the trail makes a hard right and goes up a short climb to join up with the Bar-M Loop. Stay right and look for the Bar-B trail marker. This trail is about 25% intermediate, 25% Difficult and 50% easy. I rated the difficulty as black diamond because there are a few hundred yards that are difficult.

As you descend this trail gets harder and harder as it drops to the junction with Killer B. If Difficult trails are not your thing, you can skip Killer B and loop back around to Lazy/EZ on an easy doubletrack.

This loop can be ridden in either direction.
