Trail Bull Run
Very enjoyable trail both for the action and the scenery. I'm not sure why it is rated as black... This would be rated a solid blue trail where I live. While I'm not 100% sure because I hucked everything, I believe most every drop can be rolled, and I don't recall much, if any, real exposure. Probably not a good route for true beginners, but I think it's fine and a lot of fun for any rider who can reliably get the front wheel to do what they want and isn't intimidated by rock.

Super fast and flowy, this trail will melt under your tires. You’ll be done before you know it, great trail for beginners. Keep the speed up, keep your weight back, keep the bike loose and have fun!!

Trail Bull Run
Fun downhill as long as you’re an intermediate/ advanced rider or better. Good progression if you’re a solid intermediate rider, not so much if you’re just starting out. If you’re a beginner you’ll find this trail very intimidating. I’m not saying it’s not possible, but you won’t have much fun. It has good flow and some solid huck spots with good landing zones. Most things are rollable, maybe everything. I’m not sure, I didn’t go back to look at the parts I hucked.

Super fun and flowy, snaking down a ridge on mostly rock with a little dirt. If you're a relative n00b, this is doable, keep the speed and roll it baby.

I'm not an expert at the MTB, but this is one of the most fun trails out there. Rip it.

If you're dropping to this after Mag 7 - know that it's a hard ride. At the bottom of Mag 7, it's sandy, and you climb a monster ridge to get out to the bike path. Beautiful though.

Totally awesome trail - I'm a roadie and I hit this my 4th day in Moab and it was great for skill progression. Awesome views, tons of fun.

The entire Getaway trail system in Mag-7 area is a blast. Getaway Top is super fun and flowy and then graduates into a bit more rocky as you transition into the Upper Getaway section. Still really fun and has some flowy sections as well but you can really hammer down on the upper top section. The entire Getaway Trail (top down to lower) is a great for beginners as well. I took my 9 year old son and one daughter who is not super experienced and they had a blast. You can take it at your own speed and be as careful or as rambunctious as you want to! Definitely a “must do“ trail here in the lab.

Trail Bull Run
Lots of fun! Super rocky of course but nothing so technical that you can't roll down it. Rode it on a hard tail and it was fine. Combined this with great escape and then back up little canyon to getaway. A very physically demanding route, especially on a hard tail.

This is the best way to ride UP if you come down Great Escape and are doing a loop. Don’t do it the other way around unless you like to suffer.

I did Bull Run plus Great Escape and then ride back up Getaway, etc. A fun 20 mile loop with no shuttle required.

Getaway is my favorite trail in Moab to bring beginner through intermediate riders. I’ve had kids as young as 8 all the up to my 70yo father on it many times done as a shuttle for those that are not strong enough to ride back up. It offers a perfect mix of flow and technical riding to offer beginners a challenge yet an advance rider has plenty of fun by picking up the pace. At the end a short ride up to Gemini Bridges is the icing on the cake.

Trail Bull Run
This has to be one of the best trails in Moab. Slightly techy and flowing. Some of the best that Moab has to offer. Not really for a beginner. I’d rather ride this than Porcupine. Just ride it and hitch a ride back and hook them up with a couple bucks. There are always people driving Gemini Bridges Road back.

Some tricky steps going down, I endo'd and banged my knee good. Commit and go hard.

I took Great Escape going back the other direction, and I didn't really think it was better than Arth's/LC, just different. Great Escape might be better going outbound.

Took this as part of Mag 7. Nice EASY trail that even hits some plains and grass sections. Not for those that want some more challenge. Take Bull run instead and have more fun.
