Lucky to make a quick jaunt to Moab the past few days, definitely one of my "happy places"
Wednesday afternoon allowed time for a quick loop around the Klondike Bluff trails
A short hike at the top brings you to a nice overlook in Arches National Park. No bikes allowed here.
Afternoon light shining through on Little Salty
Klondike to Little Salty to Dyno Flow was about a 15mi. loop
After having no luck arranging a shuttle for the Mag 7 ride, I settled on spending the day exploring the North & South KlonZo network. I think the Gravitron trail at the top of the map just opened.
Some cool formations on Gravitron. As you can see the red dirt is still pretty loose.
After a quick refuel at the car, I spent the afternoon looping around on the south trails.
The South trails are all new as well & AFAIK they just opened this month.
Not sure if I was supposed to have my bike in here so I walked it in for the picture of some distinct dinosaur tracks
Ended up with about 20mi. missed a couple but repeated a few.
After I was done with riding there was still enough daylight for a quick drive up to Canyonlands National Park.
Monitor & Merimac
Friday morning was spent on the Brand trails that opened last year. The trailhead for these trails is right off hwy. 191 about 10 miles out of town.
The Brand trail system opened last year & I posted about them in last years thread.
Morning clouds & the first signs of the impending storm
Out on the North 40
Looking back toward the La Sals
Another 20 miler & on my way home by 2:30PM
Moab continues to add trails that offer something for everyone. In the old days it was all about Slickrock trail & the super techie exposed trails. These new trails can be anything you want them to be & are obviously great for the tourist biz.
& just one more throwback to my first trip to Moab circa 1990...
As I write this, the clouds just lifted off the top of Snowbasin revealing a nice dusting of white... Bring on the snow!
