Great! We biked to the huge cliff option and it's definitely worth it. I've done it two years in a row.

The Bar M Loop is just one trail in a series of trails called the Moab Brands trails. They are called the Brands Trails because the four primary trails in the are spell out MOAB (Bar M, Circle O, Rockin' A, and Bar B). There are other trails in this system such as The North 40, Maverick, Killer B, Deadman's Ridge, EZ, and Lazy. There is something for the novice, intermediate, and advanced riders in this trail system. I enjoyed this system a lot and will ride it again some day.

The Bar M Loop itself is a relatively flat doubletrack perfectly suited for families and novices. There is nothing technical about it and is a gentle easy ride. It is also just one of the routes that can connect you to the more challenging trails in the system.

Has a bit of everything for everyone. Deadmans ridge is a bit on the advanced end of a intermediate riders spectrum and Killer Bee is an insane double black diamond .7 mile downhill for the most advanced riders. Ez-lazy to Spur to Rusty Spur is a great warm up for Sidewinder, a great technical downhill with tight turns and great banks that let's you out on the Moab paved trail. Throw the steed in granny gear for a paved climb back to Escape and hop on Deadmans then back to Ez-Lazy. By then you should be pretty beat and blissful with a great few hours of riding behind you.

Deadmans and Killer Bee are for advanced riders only. The rest are (great fun and a good place for novice riders to get better. Sidewinder should not be taken lightly however. Make sure you are a bit more advanced than novice.

This is a pretty fun area to ride. My favorite route is to start with Lazy, take Dead Man's Ridge to Bar B, then Rockin' A, Circle O, then pop back over the ridge to the car. Lazy gives you a good easy warm up. Then Dead Man's Ridge and Bar B are pretty exciting and technical. Circle O is some nice mellow, but fun slickrock riding. This area has some of everything, plus some nice views of Arches National Park.
