Courthouse Loop/Moab Brand Trails: 10.1 Miles, 406 Foot Evelation Gain:
This basic loop is our easiest tour, and is perfect introduction for beginners and families to off-road biking and trail riding techniques and terrain. Our luxury Moab resort is just 40 minutes from Arches National Park, with a stunning backdrop view overlooking the Windows section of Arches, with terrific views of seldom explored back-country areas, and an overview of Balanced Rock. The trail includes a section of paved trail, unimproved highway, some ATV track, a tiny section of singletrack, a section of rocky roadway, and smooth-paved Park roads.
Klondike Single Track:
The Klondike Bluffs area of bicycle trails and off-road vehicle paths has lots of great areas to explore, with miles and miles of available routes to choose from. You can wind through narrow wedges with towering rock peaks, bike along mesas, and try a few gentle or even challenging rock drop-offs. For an escorted tour, our Klondike Bluffs excursion is for intermediate mountain bikers, featuring slickrock riding, a chance to see dinosaur tracks along the route, fun dips and rolls during the last leg of the journey, and breathtaking views of the arches and red rock bluffs below and in the distance. There are climbs and descents ranging from easy to challenging throughout this expansive area, which is just west of Arches National Park, about 40 minutes from Sorrel River Ranch.
Dead Horse Point Bike Trail:
Dead Horse Point State Park, without question, has several jaw-dropping vistas easily rivaling that of it’s better known next door neighbor, Canyonlands National Park. The Singletrack Loop trail (a narrow trail that’s only wide enough for one bike) is a 9 mile moderate to intermediate mountain bike trail with beautiful views into Canyonlands National Park, the winding Colorado River, and scenic Dead Horse State Park. There is not much as far as a gain or loss in altitude, however the bike trail is at 6,000 feet above sea level, providing sweeping vistas.
Magnificent 7-Trail System:
Featuring intermediate up to downright challenging trails even for experienced riders, the “Mag 7” area as locals call it offers single track trail segments, Slickrock terrain, and some ledge trails guaranteed to keep you on your toes. Plus, there are some spectacular views along the canyon rims, as well as the Gemini Bridges, which is a very unique rock formation. Intermediate trail biking is in the south section of the area, with trails including Bull Run, Arth’s, Little Canyon, Getaway and Great Escape. For expert riders in peak shape, there’s the full Mag 7 linkup, which includes the unbelievable Gold Bar Rim singletrack.
