Nice long ride from Archview RV campground/resort... start by taking Zephyr out to Klonzo trails. Once you're there, you make a big "figure 8" loop, then return to start along Zephyr.

Trail Zephyr
Extremely poorly marked. By the looks of the traacks in the ground, I wasn't the only one to think so.

Trail Bar M Loop
The Moab Brands area A.K.A., (Bar-M) is a great place for families with varying skill levels with a number of different trails to choose from. The area is very user-friendly and has trail maps posted at each trailhead. Comprising over thirty (30) miles of intersecting singletrack, which include flat trails suitable for children and towing toddlers to intermediate and black diamond trails to challenge even the most advanced riders. 

Additionally, riders can enjoy great views of Arches and the Moab Canyon. When your ride is complete, enjoy an easy pedal down the paved Moab Bike path back to town.

Not a black by any stretch of the imagination, basically more of the same as Red Hot for a mostly smooth, flowy down from the top.

This trail makes a loop so there's no overall up or down, but it has lots of little ups and downs that make for a good aerobic ride. The terrain is mixed with some slickrock and some sand. The climbs are fun and build skill without being difficult.The sandy spots are generally short, so with a little momentum you can cross them and be back on solid ground again. I always enjoy this trail and make it part of my ride whenever I'm in this part of Klonzo. Highly recommended for intermediate riders!

This trail sucks. Too many up down up down up downs. Too many energy stealing sand pits. Don't do this trail. It's lame. Hot dog was much better

Trail Gravitron
Probably the most fun trail in the Klonzo system. There are a couple of switchbacks to navigate but nothing too tight. It doesn't really have any dangerous or difficult features but there are parts along a steep hillside. It's probably the steepest/fastest Klonzo trail, which is why is rated as "black", but It's probably an intermediate trail compared to the rest of the trails in Moab.

Sometimes a side chick ain’t even a chick. Sometimes it’s a gently downhill fire road.

Fun, jumpy trail with good flow. Agree that this is more of a blue or mayyybe blue/black. All features have a bypass so it's rideable by any intermediate rider.

Trail Gravitron
This is my favorite Klonzo trail! It has a nice variety of obstacles, none of which are difficult, and there's only one difficult climb (near the end). It is one-way, but I rarely meet anyone on it anyway. This trail requires access and exit via other trails with several options, so there are great ways to mix it up!

Loved this section of the Klonzo. We climbed borderline to get to Wahoo and then linked to Vertigo and back to borderline. Great 7 mile set of trails.

This trail is an “easy” black trail, there are no serious or commiting features. Super fun flow trail!

Trail Wahoo
This trail is just as fun as Gravitron when ridden counter clockwise. Don't bother with Sovereign trails unless your on a dirtbike. Klonzo system is all non-motorized. Great on a fatbike or singlespeed!
