Great introduction to Moab riding. Start at the parking area for Bar M Chuckwagon and follow the signs. Ride the loop in a counter-clockwise direction (Bar M, then Bar B to Rockin'A and finish off with Cirlcle O). Follow the sign and pait on the rock.

Review: Definitely a great taste of what Moab has to offer. Nothing I did was terribly technical but a great place to start out. I enjoyed these trails immensely and would ride them again if I were to make it back out there. If you are staying in Moab the paved bike path runs the 8 miles back into town. It is a majority downhill and was actually quite an enjoyable ride at the end of a long day.

Review: Great network of desert singletrack, with some trails that are actually constructed SINGLETRACK... not just old doubletrack, not just slickrock, but some quality trail here.

Review: I rode this trail system with the family, while on a vacation that included a stop in the Moab area. It has something for everyone with trails that range from beginner to advanced. It is great for families, as you are never far from the car in case of emergencies or tired legs. Our vaction included stops at 7 National Parks and plenty of other fantastic places. When we sized up the vaction back at home, my wife and 12 year old son felt that riding this trail system was their favorite part.

Review: Go here first if you're new to Moab. A wide variety of trails and technical challenge in a small area close to town. We saw many families out for a ride, very cool! We happened to be there on a Sunday and it wasn't too crowded.

Review: Fun network of newer singletrack in Moab. New addition of North 40 trail. Plenty to ride especially if time is a factor. Good access for quick rides. Or if biking bores you like the last reviewer, you can rent a quad and get some 3.2 beer and head up Amasa Back.

Review: I rode these many times during the first 2 years of Outerbike. Fun trials but there are much better ways to spend your time in Moab.

Review: A nice mix of terrain from Slickrock, easy singletrack, technical singletrack, open fire roads, and plenty of options for loops. Site for Outerbike testing. Many trails in system listed individually and rated accordingly. Trails are well marked and very scenic. No dabs or dismounts.

Review: A great addition to the already famous region. There are several options here making for an incredible day of riding. Deadman's Ridge is a fantastic trail as are the Rockin' A , Circle O and Bar-B trails. More trails are in the works for this area. Super fun.

Review: There's a great variety out here, from the totally non-threatening doubletrack of the Bar M to the still novice-friendly but mildly technical EZ to the continuous semi-smooth rock of the Rockin' A and the Circlo O to the always technical and entertaining Deadman's Ridge. The recent addition of the Lazy, EZ, and Deadman's Ridge trails round out the options here nicely. This is a great place to bring a group of mixed abilities and the many trails can form a wide variety of loops with plenty of bail out options if necessary.

Review: Fun warm-up for the great stuff. Well marked and you can stop and ride back to your car at anytime. This ride is a 3.5 and not always easy but not all that difficult.

Review: Great new trails in the Bar M area. Still a good place to take beginners looking to take the next step. And still more trails to come in the future!

Review: The Bar M trails area is adding several new trails and although some of these trails will eventually end up with their own listings here on ST they are all part of a large network here. I rode two new (as of 10-10) trails and seen a new map with three more trails penciled in as ‘under construction’. Utilizing the east side (the fun side) of the Bar M loop as the backbone that ties them together these loops offer several different options varying in length and difficulty. I rate these intermediate trails however there are sections here for every skill level. There are signs everywhere but having a general idea where you are headed before you leave the parking lot would be a good thing. Although not really direction specific each loop seems to have been designed for counter-clockwise travel. Leaving the parking lot you almost immediately come to an intersection for the Lazy/EZ trails that together make a 3 mile loop. Although not extremely challenging these trails are neither lazy or easy, just singletrack fun. The Bar-B trail is a 2.5 mile technical challenge that runs farther south along the ridges. This trail is for the more experienced rider. The Rockin-A is a 1.5 mile rough slickrock route that runs north and for the most part downhill although there are some great technical ups & downs along the way. The Circle-O is the big brother to the Rocking-A, about the same terrain, a little smoother rock but twice as long. It winds its way down towards the Seven Mile Canyon for about two miles and then swings back up to the Bar-M trail where it ends a mile later.
