Gold Bar Rim singletrack

John Finch said:
JSM Nice Map is there one for the UPS and LPS? How about the Gold Bar Rim Singletrack?
GBR singletrack is kind of tough to follow, and even tougher to ride - lots of big moves and drops. But also a lot of fun. Basically, where the jeep road keeps dropping down away from the rim then climbing back up to it, the singletrack stays close to the rim the whole time. It's tougher to stay on it because there's not a ton of skid marks like the jeep road, and a lot of it is on solid rock so it's hard to see if you're not right on top of it.

The downside is that the singletrack is a lot shorter than the jeep road, so you get less riding in. The jeep road is just as much fun, IMO.

I rode that trail two years ago. Rock stacker is not an easy trail to find. If you do find it from top of Amasa, it connects to Jackson.

Both trails were very technical with many exposure. Rock stacker had many 5+ foot drops. Intermediate to new rider may find it to be a bit too much unless they walk every section...fyi.

That is a great map of the area! From the top of Amasa, keep heading NW on the jeep track. You'll see on the map that there is a steel pipe that crosses the road, and just after that pipe you'll see a singletrack heading north, then it curves back East, and that is the Jackson trail. It's even signed at the top,

The trail is very very fun but as mentioned it does have some decent exposure and some very technical moves that will require a bit of hike a bike. It takes you all the way back to Kane Creek Rd and is easy to follow once on the trail. It is an adventure trail for sure with a portage at the bottom near the river.
have fun!

You guys RIPP!!!:thumbsup: I know exactly where that step-up is on Amasa. Nice work! Yeah, that Jackson is very techy and I was able clean the whole thing except one dab on one section but I had to walk 2 sections on Rock Stacker where the exposure was too great if I dabbed. Hopefully you guys will find Rock Stacker next time so you can link it to Jackson. No doubt that you guys are capable of cleaning all of them.

Nice pics Ramon...Third times a charm! Get it?:p Are you goin' to the freeride thing on Saturday. If not I am up for a ride. I don't think I can handle Xtreme Mtb as my shoulder is a little soar. Call me.

OH...BTW you guys sure left in a hurry Sunday morning ...not even so much as goodbye! I had to get my MTB fix on the SS. Left camp at about 7am and headed up to Porc Rim. I thought seriously about continueing to the singletrack, but I figured with a 6hr drive I better not. Instead I hit the practice loop (in reverse) at slick rock on the way back to camp.













Sorry I don't have any pics to share of you RCC, but here is one you might remember from our last trip....

And one of Nate on the Amasa Step-up...

Question for the Moab locals...which is better Hidden Valley (Moab Rim) or Bartlett Wash? We ended up doing Bartlett against my better judgement and it did not live up to any great expectation. Is a guide recommended for this area? Boring otherwise IMO.
