It is located just 600 feet upstream from the US 191 car bridge with access from Lions Park, Grand County’s Transportation and Trail Hub.

Moab Brands Mountain Biking Area. is a system of ever expanding loops designed to keep every member of the family entertained on fun and exciting slickrock trails. The routes have been designed to minimize impacts to critical living soil crusts, AKA Cryptogams if you haven’t gotten with the new lingo. Every rider should know what they look like and keep their bikes and bodies off of them. “Don’t bust the crust!” is our motto here in the desert.
