Most ride this trail from north to south. I find it much more fun to start with the south end of Rockin A and hook up with Circle O to make one big cap rock ride. Just follow the line and you can't go wrong. Some good pitches and climbs make this a good challenge. Stop and get some picture of Arches National Park in the distance.

 This trail is as if someone attached a paintbrush to a drunk biker and then released a wild animal after them. Don't even bother.

 The trail is simply not fun. It’s all rock of which is bumpy the entire time. No flow, nothing smooth, not technical, it constantly rattles you. It has many ditches shaped like a “V”, the first few are okay but then they become a chore to cross. The trail line has been accurately described by JamesPBlaw in the previous comment. I would never do this trail again and I do not recommend it.

 Wow, whole lot of hate for one of Moab's classic trails. Circle O is all slickrock riding with great views into Arches National Park. It would be bumpy on a rigid bike - but if you have suspension it's fine, and fun. And, it's only a 20 minute loop - if you don't like it, there's plenty of time left to ride other trails in the area.
