    There is a great variety of trails here. I was only able to do a short loop but was impressed with the different terrain available and the abundant signage to keep you on track.

    *****

    Having ridden this trail a few times over the years I gained new respect for this trail the other day/night. Out and back twice, one sunset evening ride then donned on my nite rider ultra bright led light and lapped a super fun nite ride. Overall just a real blast to ride either direction. Excellent trail design with awesome features throughout. I would rate this as Moab beginner singletrack with some advanced moves sprinkled about. Being a trail junkie I give it 5 stars based on fun factor, trail design, scenery and the tons of other trails to mix it up.

    Very fun stretch of downhill. Rode up Mega Steps and over to Alaska. Still plenty of climbing on Alaska that direction, but rocky, rowdy, fast fun downhill.

    I only rode Mega Steps up and Alaska-to-Homer down. So fun. I really enjoyed the Mega Steps climbed which, coupled with Alaska's fun DH, convinced me to do it again later the same week. Keep your eyes peeled on Alaska where there's literally a rocky berm.

    Reviewing Homer:
    ***

    Although Homer's primary purpose seems to be nothing more than a bailout from the Alaska trail putting you closer to the nothern parking lot, it is quite fun with a combination of slickrock and singletrack very similar to all of the Klondike Bluff system

    Reviewing Mega Steps:
    ***

    We chose Mega as the climb to access Alaska due to it's proximity. It's somewhat more steep the first and last third of the climb, but more than manageable. Would be a fun downhill, too.

    Starting with the traverse northwards along the bluff, the flowy upper section then gives way to a fast slickrock descent. This is a great warm up/cool down ride if combined with the easy-grade uphill on Mega Steps.

    Reviewing Mega Steps:
    *****

    Mega Steps has it all. Some lite techy sections, some slick rock sections, some smooth single track sections, and the grade isn't super steep. With all of the variety, it does make the climb seem challenging but fun and I'm not the biggest fan of up hill grinds.

    Coming from Colorado where most trails are rocky, loose and have tough climbs, this trail system is top notch. Every trail in this system seems to have the perfect amount of technical terrain to challenge even the seasoned pro and yet not be so over the top technical that the weekend worrier has a bad time. I really loved the smooth flowy parts, the super fun slick rock parts, the challenging, but fun climbs, as well as the bombing down over every kind of feature that can be thrown at you. After you get back to the parking lot, you can't help but go up again for another super fun loop on one of the many trails that make up this system.

    A great warm up for Slickrock. Nice steady climb to the top. Don't get in a hurry and miss the little hike to Arches; it is well worth it. Great fun descending.

    Wow. Highly recommend doing the 1/2 mile hike to the Klondike Bluffs. It is a view of a lifetime. Plus makes a great place for lunch. Few shaded areas on top. Also has a few dinosaur footprints on the way up that are very well marked.
