MOAB BRAND TRAILS
The best trails to warm up on or for newer mountain bikers include the Bar M doubletrack loop, Rusty Spur and Lazy/EZ. If you want to see what it is like to ride on all rock you can try the Circle O. While this isn't an easy trail, it is easier than the famous Slickrock trail and if done as an out and back you can get a good taste of what singletrack is like.
The easier trails aren't just for beginners, they are fun and great to warm up on. After getting your legs, try North 40, Maverick and Circle O. And if you are feeling techy and fit, try your bike handling skills on Deadman's. From here you can try Bar B, Long Branch and Killer B. While all of these are more advanced, there isn't anything too scary, no big jumps or drops and with the exception of Killer B, nothing too steep. If you are riding back to town, the most fun descent at the end of the day is, (in our opinion) Sidewinder.
The Moab Brand Trail/Bar M trail system is its own area and is located about 13 miles north of town off of Highway 191.
The Moab Brands Trails and the Mag 7 are on the same route and share the same bus. Your driver will have a list that indicates that you are going to the Brands but please make sure you load your bikes after all the Mag 7 folks have loaded as you will be dropped off first. After your ride you get to ride the beautiful bike path back to town. The path is paved and mostly downhill and takes about 30-40 minutes.
The Moab Brands/Bar M area is comprised of a bunch of trails and is great for the family, for a warm up ride, for your second ride of the day or in conjunction with the Mag 7. The terrain stays interesting as it covers slickrock, doubletrack and also a bunch of fun singletrack. You can loop away up here! Because of the variety, the Bar M is well suited to families or groups with different levels of riders as you can ride easy or hard trails and for an hour or hours and when you are done, ride the smooth downhill bike path back to town.
