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.

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...]

Sovereign Trail Moab

  . This is the first time I have actually ridden the Sovereign Trail, although I have been to the trailhead twice before, but each time it was too busy for my liking.

If you fall on certain section of this Trail then definitely. Is the … [Read more...]

Hidden Valley onto Moab Rim Trail

. 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...]
