Mineral Site Professional Reviews and Guides
"Good views of Moat Mountain greet riders who make it to the end of this ride, which combines a swift descent on technical single-track with 7.0 miles of mellow forest roads. The single-track that begins this trip is difficult, but can be avoided by making this an up-and-back trip—see alternate trip description. Whether or not you skip the single-track, you will get a good workout, as about 1,000 feet of elevation gain is on this ride. Rock hounds can make a side trip to the Moat Mountain Smokey Quartz Area, and ambitious multi-sport athletes can combine this trip with a hike up North Moat Mountain via the strenuous Red Ridge Trail."
