Mountain Biking Sarlacc

Fun ride with amazing views along the top of the Bookcliffs. Can be ridden as a loop with the road or an out and back. If riding as a loop, climb up the west end of the trail. This end can be easy to miss. There is a nice sign, but hidden by bushes on the right side of V 8/10 Rd. The climb up the west end is steep, long, and soul crushing. More enjoyable option is to ride as an out and back from the east end. Ride to the overlook where the west end climb tops out turn around and repeat. No sustained climbs just short up and down rollers and windy single track.

Getting there
From the 18rd parking lot head north. Take the first road on the left. Head west until you reach V 8/10 road. You'll know it because it will be more than a 90 degree right turn. Head back into canyon. To ride as a loop with the road parking can be had near the cattle loading pens. Or for a better ride do an out and back from the east end. Limited parking on V 8/10 road at the east end trailhead. Do not park on the well pad.
