No particular trail, just lots of gravel roads in the national forest to ride and explore. Lots of trees and cooler temps as compared to Slickrock.

Summary:
Camp @ Warner Lake, there are lot's of options for short single track loops, all day rides & even some killer overnighters. Good rock climbing close by. Fall is the best with all of the colors & good weather. Summer can be hot & crowded. Spring can be good, but most likely too wet & soft. Winter,...well leave the bike in town, hike up to the top of Peale with your skis and launch off the top for some outrageous back counry skiing!

Recommended Route:
Moonlight meadow, Gold Basin, Trans La Sal, round the mnt. All of the normal loops are great!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The La Sals have their own beauty, rugged and desolate yet the range is a rather small cluster. Lot's of users, so you will see others (10 years ago you could get the freaky "eebee jeebies" and not see a soul all day. I guess that can be true for most places,....aaahhh the good old days.

Reviewed by: Dave , from Moab

Summary:
The trails listed above are all trails (and there are many more) the La Sal Mountains have to offer. It is more appropraite to review these trails individually than to group them into one generalized review. The riding in the La Sal Mountains will rock your world and views into the canyons below are amazing. A trip to Moab is not complete without venturing into the relatively unknown mountains. The mountains are not for the faint of heart - the climbs are big and the descents can be hair raising. In general the trails are not very well marked so grab a Moab guide book, map or swing into a shop and get the beta.

Recommended Route:
Burro Pass, Girl Friend Loop, Hanky Spanky, Hazard County, Bachelor Basin, Fisher Mesa ST, Moonlight Meadows, Shafer Trail, Miner's Basin...

Summary:
Tons cooler than downtown Moab and Slick rock. There is some pretty good single track if you go to the right places. Not a lot of traffic up that way so the trails are usually fresh. Riding the trails feels a little akward( at least it did for me) because I didn't always know where Id end up. Most of the trails I rode I went out and back. Most of the trails I rode on had Knocked over trees coming across the trail. Some of them were to thick even to ride over.
Not a lot of people go there, so you kind of have to make your own routes. Its still kind of fun

Recommended Route:
There's tons. Too many to count. Just explore.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
All the moab greats: Slickrock, porcupine, ect.

Reviewed by: PR , from Moab, Utah

Summary:
Some of the best riding in the Moab area is in the La Sal Mountains, which are only 20-30 minutes out of town. While some of the route finding can be difficult and not all the trails are well labeled, the La Sals offer many great trails to ride. Stop in any of the local bike shops to get trail details, books, and maps of the area. If you are looking for a way to escape the summer heat or just want something different then the rocky desert riding, look to the mountains.

Recommended Route:
Too many to mention
