Mountain Biking Mega Steps

****   Add a review
#124 of 691 mountain bike trails in Utah
#3,253 in the world

A fun trail built as a section of the Klondike Bluffs system utilized to complete a loop out of Baby Steps - EKG or Little Salty. From the trailhead there is a short sandy section to get to the slickrock. From here it’s a climb for a couple miles across several slickrock sections and twisty singletrack up to the ridge. Once on the ridge the trail twists and turns through the pines and boulders granting riders fantastic views or the Salt Valley below and Arches N.P. beyond. Will also be a fun downhill when accessed form the top end.

The trails in this network have also adopted the marking system of painted lines on the slickrock. Here they have been color coded by trail;

Klondike Bluffs; White.
Baby Steps; Blue.
Mega Steps; Green.
Little Salty; Yellow.
EKG; Orange.

    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.

    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.
