North of Moab, the Sovereign Singletrack Trail System is an excellent network of mountain bike trails that can be combined to form a variety of loop sizes. The singletrack in the trail network is quite technical and combines dirt, sand and slickrock. The 4WD Jeep roads in the area do provide access points to the singletrack, but they can be quite sandy and difficult to ride.
There are two main trailhead access points: Willow Springs Road and Dalton Well Road.
To reach the Willow Springs Road trailhead for the Sovereign Trails, head north on US191 for 12 miles. Turn right on 4WD Willow Springs Road for 2.5 miles to the trailhead parking area.
To reach the Dalton Well Road trailhead from Moab, head north on US191 for 13 miles. Turn right heading east on Dalton Well Road for 1.5 miles to the signed trailhead. If you pass through the gate and it is closed first, make sure to close it after you pass.
Overall, Sovereign Trails is the 63rd most popular mountain bike trail of all 73 mountain biking rides in Utah. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Sovereign Trails including Arches National Park, Blue Mountain Boogie, Canyon Rims Recreation Area, Dark Canyon Primitive Area, White Rim Trail, Bartlett Wash, Kane Creek Canyon, .
