Nice trail for intermediate riders. Plenty of tech and punchy climbs, also a good fair share of flow and dirt. i usually ride this clockwise from where rocky tops and ramblin meet on the asphalt (lower parking lot).

 NOT a recommended route. Start at NRToilet. Ride it as a figure 8. Ramblin, Rocky Top, Middle Earth, Big Mesa, Big Lonely, Coney Island, Middle Earth. ...unless you want to do hike-a-bike up Coney Island.

 We rode this as two loops with a break in between and it was a perfect introduction to Moab mountain biking. Started at Navajo Rocks Parking, then took Middle Earth to Coney Island to Big Lonely to Big Mesa. Stopped for a break, refuel and then did the second loop starting on Ramblin. Definitely ride these loops clockwise.
Great views, fun trail!
