One of the best trail systems in Moab. We've ridden it a few times now, and it's always a blast. Bull Run is probably the most fun downhill/flow trail of the system, but most all of the trails are great. We have always started from Bull Run/7Up Trailhead and ridden to the lookout point on Golden Spike, but I think future rides will eliminate the Golden Spike piece. While the view up top is pretty sweet, the Golden Spike trail just isn't scenic, very technical, and brutally steep. So unless you just want the climbing and tech challenge of Golden Spike or you are making a shuttle loop, I would recommend riding any of the other trails again if you want the mileage. Our recent ride = Bull Run, visited Gemini Bridges, Great Escape, Little Canyon, Gold Bar, Golden Spike to lookout, return Little Canyon to Arth's, Getaway, Mag 7 to return. @30 miles and 3k ft. of climbing.
