Review: Pretty views, nice place to bring kids. Old school mult use trail that's really widened out and beat to hell. You'll like this if you want to just take your time, chill, sit on some overlook ledges and take it all in. If you want to rip singletrack save your twenty bucks and ride elsewhere.

Review: Fantastic ride for intermediate riders, and the views are to die for. Very clearly marked.

Review: This trail has some of the best scenery in the Moab area! A fun trail with little elevation changes and few techy sections. Has some good challenges for an intermediate rider, especially on Twisted Tree & the west side of Prickly Pair. I suggest you run the trail counter clockwise for the most fun.

Review: Great beginner trail with some amazing views. Not the most exciting single track but a great warm up ride or a nice place to for a picnic lunch.

Review: My wife and I do an annual trip to the sw where I ride and she explores archeological sites. Every trip she agrees to ride for one day and I do the archeological thing for a day. We rented her a good bike and she totally fell in love with the sport. This trail was a little harder that I expected but that worked out great because it challenged my wife but not too much. With the full suspension she had she handled the terrain like a pro and had a blast. I also had a great time and it was a pleasure to see her loving the sport that I have such a passion for. She now wants to get a bike to start riding at home.

Review: I live in Utah, but this was my first time riding in the Moab area. This turned out to be a great place to do it. They've apparently made a bunch of new trails recently, as the original trail summary I read only included the 3 loops in the eastern half. I did a 12 mile loop around most of the perimeter. In the beginning, I was a bit leary of the slickrock and walked in a couple spots, but by the end my confidence level had improved enough that I was really enjoying myself. There are a few places where you do have to get off and walk due to deep sand. The trails are well marked, including maps with a smiley face showing where you are at each junction.

Review: This was my first ride in Moab, and it was one of my favorites. The views make it an absolute must do. I think they are better than any overlook in Canyonlands or Arches. There were definitely some rocky sections. I took the clockwise route and was thankful that I did as it seemed to just get better as I went. I kept waiting for a really big climb that never came as I felt I'd gone down a lot more than I went up!

Review: In the grand scheme of things, this isn't a trail that most hardcore riders would consider a must do. However, for what it is rated as, this trail is awesome. It's a great area/loop for lower intermediates. I disagree with the beginner rating as a whole (Bar M is a beginner trail) due to some ledgy, rocky areas. this was a FUN area to ride with the family. We saw a group of Western Spirit guides out there tearing it up as well so even the local experts like this area.
