We took a trip to Moab in late May, and it was one of the best trips I've been on :thumbsup: The desert heat and altitude change was really hard on the body. I was really beat after 6 days of solid riding :) I'll let the pictures do the talking!

After we got there, we figured it'd be good to take it easy on the first day. So we rode

Bar M + Baby Steps:





On the second day, we continued onto Amasa's Back








Porcupine Rim:


He hit the bar a few minutes before. Time to stretch!











Slick Rock: I thought it was my least favouriate trail. There was pretty much no flow to it. Just lots of climbing :(





Sovereign:






Lion's Back




Look for the car


Arches National Park

Moab is great. Looks like you had an epic week. Was it your first time there? Where did you visit from?
It was definitely our first time visiting. We flew in from Ontario, or Onterrible. The MTBing here is nothing compared to Utah.

I find all the trails in Ontario are somewhat boring after getting back from Moab. Oh, such is life :p

Looks awesome. I hope you got to see the Parade of Elephants in Arches Park.
Haha, where are the elephants? I guess I saw a bunch of rocks that looked like submarines, but nothing like elephants. Maybe I wasn't paying close attention :( The walk up to the Delicate Arch alone was worth the visit.

Totally agreed!

great pictures! i hope to make it out there someday
You definitely should if the opportunity arises. We only spent about $1000 each staying at a motel, and eating in 50% of the time!

So 4WD's go up and down that Lions Back for fun, I'm wondering whether the skinnier version to the right in those photos would be worthy for MTB? Take some balls to ride, yes. But I'd watch if someone else gave it a crack (had a go).

Great photos of what looks like a great trip.

Used to... I believe the land sold a few years ago and it is now private property/closed to vehicles.

Yeah I found that on YouTube a while ago as well. Here's the longer version:

So freakin lucky to be alive.

To the OP - did you have your bikes with you? Think of giving it a go?

I did have the bike with me, but after riding slick rock, coming down Lion's back won't be a challenge really :) You really get used to riding 70 degree inclines on a regular basis.
