“A great start to a long loop around Klondike Bluff.”

Description
This is the start to the Klondike Bluff Outer Loop ride.

Start uphill with a lot of rolling rock ribs, generously marked with green paint. It's all rideable, but slow and a bit jarring. There are a few short downhill sections, but it generally climbs at a low angle. Because of the bouncy slickrock, you'll go a lot slower than it seems like you should.

After a mile of mixed singletrack and slickrock, you'll encounter an enormous swath of slickrock and some bumpy riding for a little while. Continue on a mix of dirt singletrack and short patches of rock that takes you to the top of the bluff for a great view over the Salt Valley and Arches National Park beyond.

Ride relatively flat trail along the top of this plateau on much easier dirt singletrack with nice swoops until you intersect Baby Steps North and Baby Steps Loop.
