Trail Overview

Brushy Basin is a half-mile single track that connects Dalton Wells Road to the Sovereign Singletrack. Take the Dalton Well-Brushy Basin Connector north to get to the southern end of the trail. It winds north for a half mile through a desert landscape full of big rocks, between big boulders, and along the rim of rolling mesas. There are rock pinches and rocks lining the trail that you need to watch your feet on, as well as spots of exposure. It's a mix of dirt and slab slickrock. It gets up on top of the mesa with a couple of rocky climbs near the edge, but there are no huge ledges or giant obstacles. It ends at the intersection with the Sovereign Single Track (Cedar Mountain).

Difficulty

This is a short intermediate single track with small rock ledges, rock pinches, and spots of exposure.

Access Description

The Sovereign Trails Area is an extensive trail system north of Moab with several single tracks and ATV trails, mostly of intermediate or advanced difficulty. The system is most easily accessed off of Willow Springs Road or Dalton Wells Road. Most of the trail system can be ridden over the course of a couple days. You'll likely share the trails with mountain bikers. The trails are best in spring, fall, and winter, as the area is extremely hot in the summer.
