Trail Description
About this trail
This is a series of 7 trails ("Magnificent 7") which make up a new (mostly) single-track incarnation of the classic Gemini Bridges shuttle descent. The
seven trails are: Bull Run, Arth's Corner, Little Canyon, Gold Bar, Golden
Spike, Poison Spider and Portal. Gold Bar is 1.2 miles of singletrack and 2.3
miles of 4x4 road. Golden Spike is 5.2 miles of nasty 4x4 road. Poison
Spider is 7.4 miles of rough, churned up 4x4 road. Choose your poison.
The singletrack at the upper end (including a loop called the "Great
Escape") are great fun and make any inconvenience totally worth it. The
attached GPS map suggests a variation of singletrack down to the end of
"Little Canyon," then take the "Gold Bar Rim 4x4 back to Gemini Bridges
Road to it's lower terminus (and where you want your shuttle vehicle to be
waiting).

Review: This is absolutely one of my favorite trails I have ever ridden. Skip the crappy jeep road and drive all the way down to the trailhead of great escape. I like to ride a figure 8 of great escape to little canyon to Arth's corner to Getaway and then come back down bull run right back to our car. The slickrock on great escape will have you smiling fondly remembering the ride for long after.

Review: Instead of riding down the dirt road from Hwy 313 to access Bull Run, you can now ride a new section of singletrack starting about 50 yards in from 313 that connects to the original upper Bull Run section.

Review: Another 5 star system for Moab! There's lots of variety, crazy scenery, and many ways to customize the length and difficulty of the ride depending on your time, fitness and skill level. There truly is something for everyone here, but it's all good and should please any discerning rider. A continual blast!

Review: Super fun and gnarly. If you don't ride the last two, it's a shitty sandy jeep road out. Not too bad though.

Review: Skip the shuttle, save yourself the dirt road finish, Portal portage, and some $ - the loop we rode was awesome. Park at Upper Gemini --> Bull Run --> Great Escape --> Little Canyon --> Arth's --> Get Away. Rocking downhill, great rolling flow back up.

Review: Mag-7 is an awesome trail. Definitely in my top 3 favorite rides in Moab. But the topo map isn't of Mag-7. It is Mag-3. As noted in the description, the topo map goes out on Gemini bridges road after the first 3 sections. The first 3 sections are great, but what elevates Mag-7 to one of the best rides in Moab is then climbing up to Gold Bar rim and traversing the entire rim over to the Portal trail (or Poison Spider). Riding Gemini bridges road out to the highway eating ATV dust is a buzz kill. As a side note, the full Mag-7 is advanced, not intermediate (expert if you ride all the drops on Gold Bar and Portal).

Review: Got a shuttle to the top with Coyote Shuttles.
Really enjoyed the downhill sections of singletracks and slick rock.
The exit road after Little Caynon is a bit tedious, but gives you time to think of what a good time you had.
Rode back to town via Brand M and bike path - easy and fun.

Review: I like riding out the Gemini Bridges road back to 191. Great uphill to finish on!

Review: Fantastic singletrack/slickrock descent with some bomber, technical trails and world-class views! Some of the most entertaining desert riding I've ever done, hands down.
