MOAB, UT Mountain Biking

Moab is an absolute mecca for mountain biking. With hundreds of miles of trails, Moab appeals to bikers of all skill levels. While the riding tends to lean toward challenging in many areas, beginners to the sport can find smooth singletrack complemented by panoramic views and mesa tops at the Klonzo, Klondike Bluffs and Bar M trail systems.

Klonzo incorporates flow singletrack with small rock gardens and slickrock for an all-around Moab biking experience across its 24 trails. Bar M, or Moab Brand trails, is the trail system closest to town with 16 trails and slickrock riding options. Klondike features 27 trails with excellent beginner and intermediate options and spectacular views of Arches National Park. The great thing about all of these trail systems is the variety in trails - there are options for everyone from beginner to advanced!

A bit further away, Dead Horse State Park has fantastic beginner and intermediate riding opportunities with some of the best scenery around. Bike along the edge of canyons and peer down at the gooseneck of the Colorado River!

If you're feeling more adventurous, take on the steep, technical and fast Captain Ahab trail in the Amasa Back area, or for the same incredible views but a slightly less technical ride, take on the newer Hymasa trail nearby. Complete the Moab experience with the Whole Enchilada - a crowd favorite shuttle ride that features 34 miles of singletrack that starts high up in the La Sal mountains and ends at the Colorado River. This advanced ride covers almost every type of riding and scenery that Moab has to offer.

BEST MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS IN MOAB, UT

Advanced/Intermediate Mountain Bike Trails in Moab

  • Whole Enchilada / Porcupine Rim
    • Shuttle recommended
    • The Whole Enchilada, or the shorter Porcupine Rim, are the most famous trails in Moab for a reason.  They are incredible!  But be ready for a full day in the saddle!
  • Mag 7 
    • Shuttle recommended
    • First 5 trails a blast, the last 2 are tough AF and super-advanced. You should not try the Portal trail unless you are a very advanced rider as there are high-risk drop-offs. Check with the local shop if you’re considering this trail first and they’ll probably talk you out of it.
