Description
This trail is easy, it is an excellent one to introduce a newcomer to our sport and the riding found around Moab (I took my 11yr old son and he had a blast, he wants to keep going back to Moab which is fine by me). There are some slickrock sections to play on, even some small drops to keep from getting bored and the scenery is excellent with views into Archs National Park off to the east.

Review: Short/easy connector. Great for new riders as an intro, and some cool views. Other than that doesn't offer much for riders with experience.

Review: Very easy, open ride. We used it as a warm up for the other trails. Can also use it to gain access to different parts of the area.

Review: Mainly used as an easy route to to connnect to other trails. Jeep trail. No major climbs or downhills. Mixture of slickrock, sand, loose rock and bedrock. Did during Outerbike 2011. Trails are well marked.

Review: A main trail running through the Brands Trails system. Primarily used by families or as access to other trails.

Review: By itself, this trail doesn't offer much, especially by Moab standards. It had some value in that it could be part of various loops in the Brands Trails, but the recent addition EZ, Lazy and Deadman's Ridge, as well as a connector that takes you almost straight from the parking area out to Circle O/Rockin A, makes this trail superfluous.

Review: This trail is has very little elevation change and alternates between fireroad and slickrock. It does connect to the rest of the "Moab Brand Trails" which have some more technical stuff, but this loop is pretty tame. It's a decent warm-up when you first get into town, especially if you have newbies with you. (I took mu 7 year old daughter on it)

Review: This used to be just an easy dirt road ride. However, new singletrack loops of both dirt and slickrock have been added with more singletrack to be built. Great beginner ride with little elevation change but with good variety.

Review: Maybe good for a mellow ride after a hard day. You can get better views of the arches from other ledge trails (eg Gold Bar Rim). You time is better spent elsewhere.

Review: I joined in this trail at the N end of the loop from the Sovereign Singletrack via the Pipeline jeep trail. This is near the edge of the Seven Mile Canyon, a very scenic spot to stop and say ŽwowŪ. The trail follows south along the canyon for a while then winds around some small foothills. This is a great afternoon ride with grand views of the Arches and the La Salle mountains to the east, very little sand and some slick rock areas thrown in. The trail gets back to 191 about 3 miles from town - all down hill. WARNING; if you get to a fence and small gate marked žArches NP BoundaryÓ it is best to backtrack on the trail you just rode in on for a 1/4 mile or so until you find a main trail W to 191. It is not advisable to take a right and follow the jeep road down the hill at the fence, this goes down a very steep and rocky trail to a dead end on a ridge that is still a couple hundred feet above the highway - I chose to climb down rather than climb back up, a very dangerous situation.
