Mountain Biking in Moab, Utah

So last night I jumped on the computer to see what mountain biking trails were close to Moab - and there were a ton listed.  I decided to hit the M.O.A.B. trail collection which is about 15 miles north of Moab.  At first I thought I would take it easy and do the less difficult 'Bar M' trail but about midway through I was looking for something a bit more challenging and took a sidetrip to 'Circle O' trail.  It was the most technical riding I have ever done and the most rewarding.  The entire ride was roughly 9-10 miles and the riding was a lot of fun.  Spectacular views into Arches National Park and surrounding red cliffs.

The above video was taken while on the 'Circle O' trail.  I would love to come back here one day and ride with a group to show them the way.  I only saw one other person while on the trail - very quiet today.

I'll be checking out Arches today then on to Canyonlands (North) to try and find a campsite for the night.  Bryce Canyon tomorrow, then Zion, then Grand Canyon and on to Vegas for a couple days.  Cell reception has been a bit erratic through Utah - so I may not be able to post again till this coming weekend.
