Technical trail right in town with great views. Hugs the side of the canyon wall - so very narrow with lots of exposure.
Easier ridden in the downhill direction (south to north).

       This trail is great if you are in Moab and want to take a quick ride without a shuttle. The trail is not easy, but is well made and maintained. I would consider doing it again, and riding from south to north is the more downhill direction.

       Trail builders did an amazing job on this trail. Lots of short punchy climbs that are not easy, but not too hard. Followed by quick, twisty descents. Fun ride for anyone with good climbing skills.

       This is an epic ride, loved it. Rode it in the downhill direction and there are still lots of stiff short climbs.
