Trail shared by Jeff Ruhle

A new 4-mile trail that connects the top of Quarry Mountain with Lupine.

Description

This newly made (summer 2014) trail connects Lupine to the top of Quarry Mountain. Due to the very mellow grade and tons of sharp switchback turns, this trail is probably better ridden up than down, but it is certainly fun in either direction!

It also passes through some beautiful forest terrain. Pines, aspen, ferns, and all kinds of lovely forest smells await you.

Since it is a new trail and fun to ride, it can get quite busy on weekends.

If it's been dry for a while, expect the switchbacks on this trail to be covered in deep "moondust" dirt.

I did this as part of a Lupine / Morning Gloria / Quarry Mountain / Little Moab / NPR loop. The whole trail is good. This was my favorite part. 4mi

Root Canal is definitely more fun than Lane of Pain.
