Trail Overview

This is a 1.4-mile intermediate segment of single track in the Sovereign Trails System. Going east to west, it starts at the bottom of the desert mesas in a rocky wash. The trail rides both in the wash and on a rim elevated above the wash, with lots of embedded rock and granite boulders. There are big slabs of rock in the wash, and big boulders lining the trail after it climbs out of the wash. The trail is a bit harder because you ride over so much slab with loose rock, and it has a bit of exposure when side-hilling across the mesas. There are faster sections of flowy dirt in between. The trail follows the canyon the whole way, very gradually dropping a couple of hundred feet in elevation, and there are a couple of moderate rock ledges. The northeast end starts at Dalton Wells Road, and the southwest end meets up with another segment of Sovereign Singletrack.

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.
