The ride is a moderately difficult loop with mostly singletrack, and long, bumpy sandstone sections down Rockin' A
. Hardtails beware.
Start with Lazy
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.
