Description [Suggest Changes]

This trail is reached from North Comb Wash Rd, just off Hwy 95. Shortly after a creek crossing on Comb Wash Rd, an obvious dirt road splits off to the left at an unmarked intersection. The MTB Project mobile app may come in handy here.

Within about a 1/4 mile, the road surface transitions from dirt to ledgy slickrock. If you've ever ridden in Moab (and liked it), you'll love this section of trail. There are tons of steep pitches with big step-up moves to navigate. As you climb, stay left to check out a sweet overlook into Arch Canyon.

Retrace your steps slightly, bang a left and continue with the technical slickrock climbing. Somewhere around mile 6.6, the grade lessens significantly and the tread transitions back to mostly dirt. In no time, you'll find yourself at the base of Hotel Rock and its amazing Anasazi ruins. Retrace your steps and enjoy the bombing technical descent back down to the road.
