This trail is a great half day ride in the Moab area. It's also a very well kept secret. Never seen anybody else there. I even talked to locals at the trailhead, who had no idea the trail even existed. It's nice and ledgy for a good workout on the way up, and some seriously SWEET rock 'n' roll on the way down. But nothing's unrideable. Even busted my chain and still wound up at the trailhead only a couple minutes behind my buds. The views are phenomenal. You're not as high up as on Porcupine Rim, but the cliffs are way steeper, so you get to really take it all in. Plus you can get some great shots of the Colorado River winding through the valley, 2000 feet below. A must ride if you have time.
It's out and back. Make sure to take in all the views up on top. They're worth it.
