This is almost exclusively a biking trail. We hiked it counter to the bike flow, which I strongly recommend. It requires keeping an eye out for bikers and being ready to step aside, but better than always looking over your shoulder. We enjoyed getting a better sense of the biking experience which we hadn’t seen before, but it doesn’t make for a peaceful communing with nature. We cut the loop in half to total ten miles of hiking and involved a 1/3 mike walk on the side of the road (not a problem, wide shoulders) to get to the other side of the loop. It was a nice leisurely end to our week of more strenuous hiking but there are definitely other exclusively hiking trails around the area that will rock your socks more than this one.

Great

nice easy trail, however the Tibbets Arch is understated as it is small and down in the canyon and difficult to see. Since most visitors in this area are heading to either Canyonlands NP or to Deadhorse Point State park or mt bike riding on the many mapped MTB routes, there is very little use to this obscure arch trail. Good option for a quiet hike as a break from MTB riding.

Absolutely loved this trail! Loved the downhill cruise!

Moab Red Hot 33k course. Great views of the area surrounding Moab from the Gold Bar Rim.

Easy trail. Some sand at the end, but nothing major. Tunnel and views are worth the drive.

Short little trail with fun tunnels, fun off roading for the right vehicles and a pot of gold at the end of the trail ;)

Got to this via the Monitor and Merrimack ATV trails. A short walk through the tunnel to a cool view and a pictograph. Worth the time.

The base map is off for this trail. It shows starting from the Book Cliffs which is not correct. It can be started from Mill Canyon Road or Blue Hills Road.

North of Moab, and west of Hwy 191. An easy and short trail that you can do in less than an hour.

Northwest of Moab and Hwy 313: The off road portion of the trail is fairly short. A few spots require careful tire placement.
