On all of our Ride Camps, Trek Travel strives to find the most enjoyable but challenging trails, over a variety of terrain, in order to fully experience the region. Moab Ride Camp is best suited for our Type 4 Riders with at least intermediate technical mountain biking skills. Type 4+ Riders will enjoy the extra mileage and challenges the avid route options offer. The terrain is highlighted by stunning views and diversity of terrain. See Itinerary for specific daily ride distances and mileage ranges options. For the October 8th instructional camp, we host riders from type 1 to 4 for the October 8th outing.
There is a reason that Moab is synonymous with epic mountain biking. The classic trails in the area, particularly Porcupine Rim and the legendary Slickrock Trail, set the gold standard for spectacular, unique riding that cyclists from around the world come to enjoy. With the relatively recent additions of the Moab Brand Trails, Pipe Dream, and the Magnificent 7 trail systems, the trail offerings in the area have evolved to offer something for all skill levels. That said, intermediate to advanced mountain bikers will have the most fun in Moab, as the terrain on the more classic trails requires aerobic fitness, good handling skills, and importantly, enough knowledge of your own abilities to know “when to say when.” All but the most skilled professionals walk their bikes at times in Moab! You will experience trails ranging from smooth, flowy desert singletrack to double-track roads, ledgy jeep-road climbs, alpine singletrack, and steep rock gardens with serious consequences for failure. Again, you must know your own limitations, and the rides are designed to allow for customization for the group and for the skill level of each rider. Please come prepared to expand your mountain biking horizons if this is your first time to Moab!
