Planning a route for adaptive riders. Not the best this area has to offer since its mostly jeep road but its a loop with baby Steps and hopefully adaptive riders can ride it solo. The only question is the first section of baby Steps North. Everything else should be good. I will ride it in October. Had to make this a public route so I could share with my Moab local friends.

Not a single track. Not a green trail. Part is on a dirt road and the road is, as previously stated, boring and flat. Southern climb is loose and beefy. Pass unless you're camping back there and want trail access.

The road portion at the valley bottom is boring and flat. The climb back up to Klondike Bluff's Road (the southern portion of this segment) is a black diamond, loose rocky climb on a crappy Jeep road. This is my least favorite trail in Klondike.
