 The Big Lonely trail is NOT in the Brands Trail area off of Hwy 191.
The Big Lonely trail is off of Hwy 313 in the Navajo Rocks, which is a NEW 2014 trail area for Moab. See www.discovermoab.com/biking.htm

 Thanks, the TF just assigned the closest region. I created a new riding area for Navajo Rocks and assigned the trails to it.

 This was my favorite trail on the Chaco Loop. I liked lapping it by riding up the highway from the Lone Mesa campground and riding down it. The scenery is great and the ride is fun. The sand was fine when I was there in April.
