Description

At 3 miles, this is the longest loop in the system and the most popular way to access the other trails here. Circumnavigating a small peak, the southern side of the loop climbs from near the Getaway Trail up and over a saddle in the mountain.

The trails in this system reflect the rugged and challenging terrain they are built within. Tight corners, constant grade changes, and numerous jumps, bumps and small drops keep riders on their toes. Surfaces vary from hard pack to slickrock to a bit of sand as the trails wind their way through Pinion Pines and rock canyons, all the while delivering unparalleled views of the majestic Moab area.
