Review: Coming from Colorado where most trails are rocky, loose and have tough climbs, this trail system is top notch. Every trail in this system seems to have the perfect amount of technical terrain to challenge even the seasoned pro and yet not be so over the top technical that the weekend worrier has a bad time. I really loved the smooth flowy parts, the super fun slick rock parts, the challenging, but fun climbs, as well as the bombing down over every kind of feature that can be thrown at you. After you get back to the parking lot, you can't help but go up again for another super fun loop on one of the many trails that make up this system.

Review: A great warm up for Slickrock. Nice steady climb to the top. Don't get in a hurry and miss the little hike to Arches; it is well worth it. Great fun descending.

Review: Wow. Highly recommend doing the 1/2 mile hike to the Klondike Bluffs. It is a view of a lifetime. Plus makes a great place for lunch. Few shaded areas on top. Also has a few dinosaur footprints on the way up that are very well marked.

Review: There's a single track trail out of the parking lot, to the left, I think it's called inner passage? It's rated more difficult than the jeep road, but it's much less sandy. If you take the single track you can avoid some of the most frustrating parts of the sand and save your legs and I think anything is less difficult than deep sand. Really wish I'd have known about that on my way out.

Review: While maybe back in the day this used to just be a flat dirt road ride, now this area is an absolutely massive trail system of interconnected dirt singletrack, slickrock sections, and more. Some of the trails here are challenging, but there are plenty of beginner-friendly and lower intermediate difficulty trails that keep things interesting while offering some cool views--it's something of a rarity to find such great beginner trails in Moab, and my wife definitely appreciated them. If you like shredding more technical trails, there are several of those here as well.

All in all, this is an excellent trail system, and I hope to explore more of it the next time I'm in Moab!

Review: Decent Slickrock trails, if you are new to moab or not confident with your slickrock skills, this network is fun. THe new additions they've made are quite lackluster, basically just piles of construction dirt, agate and jasper trails, really arent trails at all. Not sure why the built those

Review: This is actually a great network. I had never ridden it because of not-terrific reviews, but I had a blast. Good mix of trails - slickrocky-type stuff, fun desert singletrack, good views, some real fast fun downhills, couple little drops to hit. Good trail for a second ride of the day or on the way out of town. Rode Dinoflow, to Baby Steps (one part of it) to some Baby Steps singletrack (my favorite of the day, little techie, real fun) to UFO (OK, better ridden the other direction probably) to Little Sandy (I think? going down it was a ton of fun) back to DinoFlow down to Inner Passage to finish it off.
