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.

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.

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.

Found a pair of glasses yesterday from a group right ahead of me. If you can describe your group and glasses I'll send them your way. Send me a DM.

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.

Yes, agreed! Stay on Getaway! Only thing to pay attention to is that you very briefly pop on 7up to get back to the designated start if you do that. Otherwise, super easy to follow route. Bull Run down, Getaway up.

Getaway climb up is very easy and gradual, and it feels like the vertical is exaggerated on Trailforks.

If you are riding back up to the top please ride up getaway not the road. The road has many people driving fast, very dusty, completely boring, I don’t know why I see people riding up it so often when getaway is a brilliant up hill ride.

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.

Riding on Gemini Bridges road makes no sense here - unless you like mixing it up with jeeps and 18-wheelers. Stay on Getaway instead.
