Magnificent 7 Trail System Mountain Biking

Northwest of Moab, the Magnificent 7 Trail System provides a range of loops for mountain bikers to explore. The trail system consists of seven main trails: Bull Run (5.1 miles), Arth's Corner (1.5 miles), Little Canyon (2.2 miles), Great Escape (3.3 miles), Gold Bar, Portal Trail and Poison Spider. A popular shuttled route is to be dropped at the trailhead and connect Bull Run with Little Canyon to Gold Bar and finish with Portal Trail for a 20.8 mile route ascending 2,300 feet and descenting 4,315 feet.

To reach the Magificent 7 trailhead for mountain biking from Moab, head north on US191 for roughly 10 miles to SR313. Turn left heading west on SR313 for 13 miles to the 9.5 milemarker. Turn left heading east on Gemini Bridges Road. There are two parking areas. The first parking is immediately on the left. The second is about a mile ahead on the right. The Magnificent 7 Mountain Bike Trails start from this latter parking area. There are signed mountain bike trails with maps.
