I really enjoyed this one. It's the only trail in the Bar M area where you can maintain 20+ mph for quite a while. There is really no need to get on the pedals until you get towards the end. Don't need the brakes often either. There's a nice drop near the beginning (optional) and some nice little kickers here and there for bonus points. There are a few exposed turns that you definitely don't want to flub which is probably the reason for the blue rating and a few relatively short rocky traverses. Otherwise, there isn't really any tech until it's time to climb out back to the bike path.

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!!

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.

This is the fastest and most flowy trail in Moab Brands. Super fun to ride and easily lapable. Very high speed, the climb towards the end is a great challenge to power up. Great trail.

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.

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.

If you like the miles - hit this on your way in and out of town (from Mag7 or Navajo Rocks, or just Moab Brands). A very enjoyable send, not very technical, little bit of spikey climbing.

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.

Awesome trail. All down hill and a great one to hit after Rusty Spur. Can be technical in some spots but super fun and well worth the climb back up. Some ppl may not enjoy the steep side hill and because of this I would rate this trial advance intermediate pushing black.

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.

When the rim tours are here don’t plan on riding at your usual pace, the place turns into a playground

Great trail, especially if you are done for day and heading into town. Smooth and speedy, for the most part. In late April, the intense red rocks, dark green plants, and purple flowers were other-worldly.

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.

Heads up! Don't miss your turn for the Slickrock incline out of the wash at the bottom. There's lots of tracks that lead down the wash which is the wrong way. Take the Slickrock! Don't follow the wash!

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.
