A great mix of singletrack and that famous Moab sandstone.

Overview

Stay on the painted line through the sandstone to protect the soil crust and plant-life ecosystem.
The ride is a moderately difficult loop with mostly singletrack, and long, bumpy sandstone sections down Rockin' A and Circle-O. Hardtails beware.

Description

Start with Lazy/EZ Loop going counter clockwise. EZ winds along the base of a low ridge. It's a short, beginner (fast) section, which runs into a more technical Deadman's Ridge.

Through Deadman's Ridge, you'll encounter some technical sections that will challenge your slow speed balance and pedaling endurance.

There's an option to take a right for the full Deadman's loop, or hit Rockin' A for some Bumpy slickrock action. Be sure to follow the painted line on the rock.

Head Northeast after a few trips around the berm bowl for Circle-O and some more slickrock, and gorgeous views toward Arches National Park. Again, stay on the painted line on the rock.

Pass by the Bar-M Loop and take a right on North 40. You'll have the option to take the full North 40 loop, or take the bypass halfway through. This is a very fun singletrack section that gets more technical, and involves more climbing towards the end. Before you know it, you'll be able to see the trailhead on the right.
