Sovereign Trail 2011

  Last year this was my last ride in Moab, I crashed on the last mile of the Sovereign Trail cracking some ribs and my sternum. As it happened, it turned out that this would also be my last Moab ride for 2011 as well, luckily for me though, this was not due to a crash. This time around I made it around the Sovereign Trail in one piece.   Trail Stats & Information Sovereign Trail Nearby Town: Moab Length: 15.45 miles : there are numerous options to lengthen or … [Read more...]

Pipe Dream Moab

  Last year October this trail did not exist, and I was pleasantly surprised to have a +10 mile singletrack at my doorstep. I did the Pipe Dream all the way, from Hidden Valley to Aspen Street  and back. Having the smell of Burger King follow me all the way was not easy, knowing that it would only be a 5 min detour to add Burger King or McDonalds to the trail. This time I did not give in to temptation, but it was very difficult.     Trail Stats & … [Read more...]

sixsixone Core Saver 2011

Last year ( 2010 ) on Moab's Sovereign Trail I managed the "Mother of all Endo's"  off a 4 foot ledge, face planting myself in luckily the only bit of sand in miles.  The end result was a cracked sternum and 3 cracked ribs. The cause of all these cracked bones, was .... my camera!. I always wear my camera fastened to my camelback  chest strap, and I landed on my face and chest, and the camera pushed directly into my sternum, cracking it along with the 3 ribs. I realized how lucky I actually … [Read more...]

Amasa Back Pothole Arch and Rockstacker Trail 2011

  The Amasa Back - Pothole Arch and Rock Stacker Trail is in my opinion Moab's most scenic trail, and if planned well is also one of Moab's best rides.

For anyone planning a trip to Moab to Mountain Biking should definitely put Flat Pass Trail on the list of "Must do" … [Read more...]

  The Hidden Valley onto Moab Rim is one of my Moab favorites. This trail offers fantastic scenery, a very remote feeling without being remote ( if anything goes wrong, it's no more than a 1.5 hour walk to civilization). The Hidden Valley onto Moab Rim trail offers everything the big trails offer, such as Porcupine. The trail can be looped, or as an out and back. This trail offers the longest and steepest slickrock downhill section, almost a mile of solid mental 22 percent … [Read more...]
