High on Mountain Biking | the trail adventures of a mountain biker

Pipe Dream Moab

  Last year October this trail did not exist, and I was pleasantly surprised to have a +10 mile singletrack at my doorstep. I did the Pipe Dream all the way, from Hidden Valley to Aspen Street and back. Having the smell of Burger King follow me all the way was not easy, knowing that it would only be a 5 min detour to add Burger King or McDonalds to the trail. This time I did not give in to temptation, but it was very difficult.   Trail Stats & Information Pipe Dream   Nearby Town: … [Read more...]

Hidden Valley onto Moab Rim October 2011

  The Hidden Valley onto Moab Rim is one of my Moab favorites. This trail offers fantastic scenery, a very remote feeling without being remote ( if anything goes wrong, it's no more than a 1.5 hour walk to civilization).

Moab Rim Campark the mountain bikers choice

. I have been staying at Moab Rim Campark for 4 years  running, always through the month of October. Although everyone is welcome at Moab Rim Campark, mountain bikers will especially feel at home here. If you are looking for a resort, or heated swimming pool, or air conditioned outdoor mini golf, then this is not the place for you, however if you are looking to stay somewhere with an adventurous feel, somewhere that offers stunning views, and somewhere that is mountain bike friendly, then … [Read more...]
