Prior to the construction of all the great front-side trails on Emerald Mountain, this road was the access to the upper ridge line of the original renegade trail network. With the construction of Morning Gloria
, Quarry Mountain
and Wild Rose
trails, this old-school route has been rendered superfluous.
From the top of Little Moab
, near the quarry overlook, ride past Blair Witch
and begin climbing the steep doubletrack. As implied by the name, this is a steep, unrelenting climb. Top out and continue west (right) to the Ridge Connector
and western portion of Emerald Mountain.
