Description

To access the trailhead, go out Dave Wood Rd for about 25 miles, take a right on Divide Rd and drive a few more miles to the trailhead. There is a sign on the left that reads "Rim Trail." You can park here, then ride about 2-3 miles further up Dave Wood Road to the second marked "Rim Trail" on the left and start the trail here. Doing it this way, you'll ride the trail counter-clockwise.

The Rim Trail is a scenic doubletrack. There are a few rocky sections but it all is rideable for a beginner. It climbs up gradually to aspen groves and then to a scenic overlook with views of the San Juans. The trail then descends back to Dave Wood Road where you started.

Beautiful views of West Montrose County. It's awesome knowing you're looking at the La Sal's range above Moab! Mar 3, 2017

Realistically, this could be another addition to the Whole Uncalada to make it even longer. Do the trail as described, get back to the Divide Rd, go back east to catch Fenceline. Mar 3, 2017
