Trail Overview

Northwest Sovereign is a 2.8-mile segment of single track in the Sovereign Trails Area north of Moab, Utah. The south end of the trail is indicated as moderate for the trail system. It starts as an easy dirt trail that goes along the rolling desert mesas, with loose rocks, sagebrush, and slab rock and continues along the rim of these mesas with small rock ledges. The next trail sign indicates that the trail turns more difficult. The north half has some more side-hilling on exposed sections of shelfy trail around the rim of the mesa, which makes it slightly more difficult. There are lots of slab rocks, wash sections, moderate climbs, and a couple of tight switchbacks, but is overall an intermediate trail. It's also in a unique desert landscape with giant boulders and green dirt. The north end of the trail connects to a Jeep road that will take you out to Klondike Bluffs Road.

Difficulty

This is an intermediate desert single track with some shelfy exposed sections and small rock ledges.
