The Little Moab Trail runs down the north slope of Mount Ascension over a bare limestone outcrop, hence the name. The trail starts in the trees, opens onto a gravelly slope, and finally comes across a limestone sidehill. The trail is not marked across the bare rock, so a little route-finding is required for first time riders. This trail crosses private land for most of the way, so be sure to stay on the trail.

Access Info

The trail starts at the five-way junction with Eagle Scout, Archery, Pay Dirt, and Easy Rider, and ends in a vacant lot on Davis Street.

Disclaimer

This trail crosses private land- please be respectful of the landowners and stay on trail.
