Description

This trail won't thrill experts, but good beginner singletrack is hard to find around Moab, and this delivers. It doesn't look like much, but it's surprisingly fun.

This smooth trail winds around a Martian landscape of harsh red rocks with little vegetation. You'll climb up and down little mesas, but the climbs are never long or steep, and everything is fast and flowing. The views of the La Sals are outstanding.

Check out Klondike Bluff Beginner Loop for a longer option.

The entire trail is lined with rocks and you can't get lost.
