The “M” in the MOAB Brand Trails, Bar M is actually a doubletrack road that will take you in a large loop around the trail system. It is often used to access the other trails, but it can be an enjoyable stand-alone ride as well. Because it is broad doubletrack road, it makes it a great ride for beginners or families. There is nothing challenging or technical about it. However, it does offer the same great views that you’d expect in Moab, with deep canyons, red cliffs, and the towering La Sals serving as a backdrop for your ride.

Your ride experience is easily alterable, as you'll frequently come across shorter singletrack loops and segments, like Circle O, Rockin’A, or Bar B, that you can use to lengthen or add variety to your ride. Likewise, there are several access road cutoffs that will take you directly back to the parking area, should you choose to shorten your ride.
