Mountain Biking Deadman's Ridge

*****   Add a review
#65 of 700 mountain bike trails in Utah
#1,451 in the world

Not a fast trail by any means, Deadman's Ridge is probably the most technical trail of this network so far. A mix of slickrock and hard pan this is a great option for those riders looking for more of a challenge than the Bar B or Lazy trails. Some short technical climbs and drops mixed up with some very tight switchbacks will keep riders on their toes throughout the 3 miles. At just about the half way point there is a turn off to the east and a short connector to the Bar B trail near the intersection with the Rockin A Loop. Numerous route options here. The remainder of Deadman's continues winding around the contours of the ridge and then steeply drops down and ends at the paved trail from Moab. Head up hill on the pavement .7 mile back to the Bar M Trail.
