Outstanding trail, mixed riding on rock and dirt, playful flow, intermediate technical. Excellent views of Bull Canyon as you ride along the rim, and the LaSal mountains and Arches to the east.
NOTE: trail has high-speed downhill traffic, and is designed as a downhill only route.

Disclaimer

One way downhill trail

Adaptive Bike Info
aMTB 3 Rating: Major obstacles exist. You will not be able to ride this solo. Support rider needed.

A lot of off-camber as the trail crosses the canyon face and four or five rock crawls requiring assistance for most adaptive riders

       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.
