Description

This loop is ridden counterclockwise (EZ into Lazy):

From the central Moab Brand area parking lot, take the wide doubletrack path, which leaves parking lot on the opposite side from where you came in. In a few hundred yards, turn right to start onto the Lazy/EZ singletrack.

Starting southbound from the trailhead, stay right on EZ when the Lazy joins in from the left at the early fork. From there, the ride winds along the base of the low ridge, with just enough rocks and tight turns to keep a beginner on their toes.

After a little over a mile, the trail makes a hard left and goes up a short climb to join up with the Bar-M Loop and the Lazy singletrack. Stay left on the Lazy and weave your way over rocks and through washes on the quick initial climb. Just as you come out on the east side of the ridge, you'll reach a bike pullout on the right where you can stop to savor the views of Arches National Park.

From there, it's one more mile downhill over flowing dirt track and through banked turns to the northern junction with EZ. Turn right at the junction to head back to the parking lot.
