Klondike Bluffs

Klondike Bluffs Professional Review and Guide

"This trail is pretty well marked and maintained. Other routes in this area utilizing the old mining road network that weaves through the gullies and hills are best explored with the assistance of a guide--one who can offer you beginner slickrock skills lessons, geology workshops, and dinosaur hunts.

The consequences of getting lost can be dire at Klondike Bluffs, especially in the heat of summer, so stay on the main route if you are not riding with a legally qualified guide. The out-and-back to Klondike Bluffs is a perfect introduction to Moab terrain, a Whitman's Sampler of Southeastern Utah's mountain bike challenges and canyon-land geology. This area's easy to moderate slickrock and ledges are perfect preparation before you step up to the bigger surf. Trail Surface: 2WD dirt road, 4WD mining road, and a short singletrack. Slickrock, sand, bedrock, shale, and loose sediments."

A very scenic trail and the dinosaur tracks should not be missed. Even worth riding for the more experienced because, although not very technical, it sure is unique.
