It was fun for the first 3 miles then turned into living hell!! Flipped off a 5ft drop that was killer but I will not be returning! It is far from moderate, it's seriously extra hard as F*ck and is not for beginners. You should have a car parked at the end of the trail and one at the top of the trail because riding back is not the best. There is a cave if you make it to the top of the second mountain. Bring lots of water. You'll leave this trail with bruises and scrapes and maybe a bent wheel rim on your bike.

Beautiful views! Love this trail! My lil' dog loved it too. Just make sure your dog is on a leash, there are a lot of places where your dog can run off the cliff. This place is a hidden gem. Never new this place existed if not for this app.

After exploring much of bangs canyon this year, Ribbon trail has come to be my favorite.

You have to start at the small turn off to the right before coming to little park. There are massive caves from washed benonite, and a nice climb down a small rock face before connecting with Andy's loop.

The massive sandstone rock tops towards the end of the hike are a bear, and great exercise.

*If you're coming from the TH, if you get slightly off track you may end up on Old Gordan Trail.

10/10

One of our favorite trails. Start at the top and have someone pick you up at the bottom. This is for hiking and mountain biking not road biking. Most of the trail is sandstone and is hit in the summer. Best in the spring when there is a chance of runoff. It is 2.5 miles one way and if you start at the top it will be almost entirely uphill in the way back.
