“On a 5-star scale, this one is a 6!”
Nick Wilder on Mar 18, 2014
Getting There     GPX File     Print
3.7 Miles Singletrack Type 199’ Ascent -138’ Descent 5,928’ Low 6,020’ High
Description
After a few small technical hills to start with, and some interesting "alligator back" rock riding, you level out on the rim with MILES of amazing views. The trail is particularly fast and flowy, especially for desert riding. Continue out to the Big Chief Overlook with views of the potash mine 2,000' below (and all of Moab and the La Sal mountains).

The trail then doubles back on itself on a higher level of the mesa. Great views continue, including good ones of the Henry mountains to the west.
