ZYNG ANNUAL RIDE REPORT

Moab has two ideal riding seasons: April-May and September-October, summer is not as busy because of the high heat that can easily average triple digits.

During the early spring and late fall, although it is ideal because of fewer crowds and cooler temperatures, you can run the risk of not being able to access some of the higher elevation trails. Furthermore, if you’re looking to ride the Whole Enchilada, you’ll have to wait until July as the Forest Service does not permit shuttle companies to access Burro Pass before July 1.

Moab is also home of the biggest outdoor trade shows in the United States, Outerbike. This event happens twice a year, once in April and again in October. It’s a event great for those that want to demo the latest available in bikes and gear being produced, but not so great if you want to avoid crowds and trails all to yourself.

If you can’t squeeze a whole week of vacation into your schedule, a Wednesday through Sunday trip allows for 2 travel days and three solid days of riding.

The Must-Do 3 Days of Mountain Biking in Moab, UT

Moab is considered to be one of the premier mountain biking destinations in the world. With hundreds of miles of trails, in addition to limitless jeeping trails and climbing routes, it is the perfect destination for any outdoor enthusiast.

Aside from the heat, elevation, and technical rock features, riding in Moab presents an intangible challenge: where to ride. One glance at a local topo/trail map, and it’s clear that you could spend weeks in Moab and not ride everything. Having spent considerable time in Moab the past few years as an “outsider,” here is what I consider to be the ideal itinerary for a long weekend, if you have the legs and lungs and want to hit the highlights.

Top 5 Moab Mountain Bike Trails

Choosing the top five trails in Moab is a bit like choosing your favourite song. It all depends on what kind of mood you’re in, your energy level or how your day has been.

That being said, there are some definite individual trail segments that can be considered the outright best in their own categories. Here are the top 5 trail segments that, in my mind, make up for the best riding in the Moab area and should definitely be on your list when stopping by for a visit.

A Complete Guide To The Best Mountain Biking In Moab, Utah

Moab, Utah, has been a mountain biking mecca since the creation of the sport. The unique terrain and stunning landscapes offer themselves to any number of outdoor adventures, but the area’s veins of Navajo sandstone create a mountain biking experience that makes riding in this area distinct from anywhere else in the world.

It is important to note that Moab is geared toward the cross-country style origins of the sport. Whatever trails you choose to ride, the better condition you are in for pedaling, the more fun you’ll be able to have. Even the more downhill-oriented trails still require a significant amount of pedaling effort. However, if you have pedaling prowess, you’ll find the trails technically challenging and the views absolutely unforgettable.

The 6 Best Moab Trails for Beginners and Casual Riders

Not only is Moab the first name most cyclists think of when asked about a “mountain bike destination,” it’s also one of the first places that comes to mind for a broad variety and quantity of gnarly trails. This reputation was earned in the early days of mountain biking as intrepid cyclists would explore the as yet largely undeveloped desert, following the tracks of various motorized users and, occasionally blazing entirely new routes. These early Moab riders were hard-core, willing to face vast, forbidding, waterless, exposed landscapes without the aid of artificial power. As such the trails they blazed were generally also not for the faint of heart–or those lacking in cycling and route finding skills.

Tips for Mountain Biking in Winter Moab, Utah

Moab is not known for its winter season but it can be a great time for outdoor recreation and cycling — if conditions permit and you make necessary preparations. Most Moab winters see fairly cold overnight temperatures, but mid-day highs can often climb into the 40’s or higher.

The biggest factor that can impede winter biking in Moab is snow cover. Some years have seen snow on the ground that sticks around for a month or more. But many winters are very dry, with few if any “snow cover” days.

For those with the right mental attitude and solid cold weather gear, Moab’s 150 miles of singletrack are wide open during the off season. If that sounds attractive, here are a few tips for riding Moab’s off-season.

MOAB ROUTES

You could ride around Moab for weeks and never hit the same trails. These are just a few of the most famous, must-do routes we recommend. Word to the wise — If you take a shuttle, you will be dropped off at the top of the route but because of various riding abilities, they can’t wait around at the bottom for everyone to get down. Just know ahead of time that some routes require you to pedal miles back into town on the paved road. Trust us, it’s worth it, just make sure to plan ahead and bring plenty of water!

MOAB CAMPING & RV SITES

Pro Tip – Do your research. Just like any other popular travel destination, it gets crowded during the prime times of the year. Reserve as soon as you know your travel dates! You can reserve sites at any of the designated Forest Service campgrounds and Dead Horse State park campgrounds online in advance. We recommend avoiding the crowded private campgrounds & RV parks. But most importantly if you get to your destination and things aren’t quite what you expected…just go with the flow and enjoy yourself!
