The first in hopefully a long line of official trails in Green River. Now you can stop off early on your way to Moab and get in some great cross country miles, with beautiful views of the river. Mostly pretty buff singletrack with some little rocky sections and minor exposure. But the trail is out in the open, so prepare for sun and some windy days.

      Fun ride. A few ruts from winter storms. Do your civic duty and ride this trail to help it mature.

      Few wet and soft spots and some washouts that make it more technical. Give it another day or two and it will be perfect

      Washed out, rutted, and no base.

      A little damp from recent rains but riding well. A few rain ruts will quickly get smoothed out as it's ridden. Fun trail!

       Not bad now that the trail is getting more packed down. Rolls a bit faster now. Some turns may need to have burms built up around them, so the angle isn't slanted away from the trail and rider. Fun and great for all skill levels.

       This trail is brutal and shouldn't even be open yet. There are no nice features, no decent views, and it's not nearly packed enough to be ridden. Do yourself a favour and drive the extra bit to Moab Brands or the Bluffs. Very disappointing ride.

       Great trail!! Some places are not marked well so I’m glad I had my Trailforks GPS on. Perfect and gorgeous trail! Easy to find the trailhead. Took my 12 year old son and this was his first mountain bike trail.
