great trail developed by the local Moab Mix bike group. This is mostly singletrack designed for mt bikes. Some features to negotiate to keep it interesting. The East-West entire loop is best done counterclockwise but it is good both directions.

       So from the Gemini road you will be going downhill to the connecting trails. Just prepare for an uphill back. Super fun afternoon ride that flows well with minor tech bits. Either way is good. Rocks and dirt.
