Review: Did most of this trail as part of a shuttle ride, Magnificent 7. It is an out and back, uphill to the lookout and mostly downhill back. Nice tecnical challeges and I had to dismount a few times too many. First time on a 5G demo bike.

Review: I rode this by parking at the bottom of Gemini Bridges road and the climb was not nearly as bad as I anticipated. This is mostly fireroad and slickrock. There are definitely some challenging spots but even any internediate rider can handle it by doing a few hike-a-bikes. The scenery is worth it!

Review: Fun ride that makes a great loop when coupled with the Portal Trail. I rode this in late May 07 with 3 riders that were much stronger than I was so I got gassed prety hard. It's a good x-country style ride for Moab with some flat riding (watch out for lots of sand) and then some long steady climbs on mixed slickrock and loose rock/sand. Nothing too technical but some fun steep slickrock climbs that will test your balance and some challenging multiple step drops. I rode this on my hard tail Lightspeed and it was the wrong bike for sure. In fact thats the wrong bike for Moab period. Although later I rode Upper Porcupine with a bunch of locals and one of them schooled just about every one of our large group on a hard tail WITH NO FRONT SHOCK!!!!
