For any rider out there, a trip to Moab is a must and offers up an amazing mix of fulfilling adventure. The trails are simply unreal and span the spectrum from arid desert to cool, alpine landscapes.

Unwind at night around the campfire or stroll through downtown if you're opting for hotel lodging. The choice is yours. Regardless of your ability, Moab has a diverse array of mountain biking offerings and we can cater to the needs and interests of your group. Join Dirt Gypsy on this carefully curated mountain bike tour that features simply the best riding in the region and blends a superb mix of sunshine, slickrock and singletrack. We've got all the time across 5 epic days to cater to your adventurous spirit. Hotel it, camp it, customize it. Just pick a week to play and let us help cleanse that soul of yours with a little dose of dirt.

Itinerary

DAY ONE  14-20 miles

Arrive early in Moab today and meet your guides. As we shuttle to our trailhead to start things off, they’ll give a run-down on the day’s agenda, but actions speak louder than words so it won’t be long before your moving those legs and pumping that heart. Our inaugural ride will be on the Klondike network where it's not too technical, not too demanding, and certainly a great intro ride to get used to this high desert playground. We'll crack a beer or two tonight and go over the details for the week ahead.

DAY TWo  18-26 miles

We’ve got the makings to a magnificent day ahead. Today we’ll ride the Magnificent 7 series of trails on a 26-mile point to point. Singletrack, jeep trail, ledges, some technical ups, and of course some slick rock await as we start to put shape to your epic week of Moab magic. There’s options to make it a wee bit longer or a touch longer so we’ve got you covered. Finish with a wild descent off the mesa and get settled back in town at our hotel or at camp before we enjoy another superb dinner.

DAY Three  14-24 miles

Today is spent tackling some of Moab’s newest purpose-built trails. Your guides will introduce you to Hymasa – a nice challenging climb that features some scattered descents on pristine Moab singletrack. Upon reaching the top of Captain Ahab you’ll be rewarded with some truly epic views of Canyonlands National Park before the real fun begins. Ahab can be as challenging as you desire and there’s great flow and features throughout. With some exposure and ledges and a few climbs, you’re guides will help where needed to ensure that you’re a better, more confident rider at the end of this gem. Enjoy lunch along the Colorado River and refresh with a dip before we head over to the trail that put Moab on the map – Slickrock. You gotta love those double ride days

DAY FOUR  14-24 miles

Let's move on to trails we haven’t yet gotten to that truly define Moab mountain biking. The Kokopelli Trail and Lower Porcupine Rim are some of the best sections of the Whole Enchilada and you’ll spend the day beneath a forest of pinyon and juniper swooping through turns, riding ridgelines, and sampling a selection of slickrock and singletrack. A Dirt Gypsy favorite, you’ll see for yourself as you ride from Castle Valley to Jackass Canyon, challenging yourself as much as you’d like en route to the Colorado River below. Let's not forget about taking some time to relax today, alright? That's before a festive dinner this evening to raise a toast to a great week of riding.

DAY Five  12 - 17 miles

Don't sweat, it’s not over yet! Before we blow out the candles on our desert rendezvous, we’ll get out and ride some mellower terrain to shake out the limbs and get the blood flowing around the body once more. Where are we riding? We’ll conduct a rider’s choice poll this AM and tackle a morning circuit before calling it quits. No rushing. You’ll have a chance to clean up and pack up before we bid you farewell to continue your travels as you choose. The only question after this quintessential Moab trip is....where to next?
