Utah's Moab region has always been the go-to for bikers seeking a thrill, but it's the "Magnificent 7" that's truly redefining the Moab experience. This collection of seven trails offers an adrenaline-pumping, awe-inspiring ride through the iconic Gemini Bridges descent.
The Magnificent 7 (Mag 7) links seven individual trails into one seamless ride, offering both technical challenges and breathtaking views. Comprising of Bull Run, Arth's Corner, Little Canyon, Gold Bar, Golden Spike, Poison Spider, and Portal, each segment of the journey brings its own unique flavor to the table. Among these, Gold Bar mixes 1.2 miles of singletrack with 2.3 miles of 4x4 road, while Golden Spike offers a challenging 5.2 miles of rugged 4x4 terrain.For those seeking a memorable experience without the taxing technicalities, the upper end provides the "Great Escape" loop, with delightful singletrack options all the way down to "Little Canyon." From there, riders can take the "Gold Bar Rim 4x4" back to Gemini Bridges Road, concluding at its lower terminus, where ideally, a shuttle vehicle awaits.
The Magnificent 7 stands as a testament to Moab's ever-evolving biking landscape. As part of the singletrack renaissance, these trails offer varying degrees of challenge while ensuring riders are rewarded with unmatched scenic beauty. From the slickrock challenges to the laid-back flowy descents, the Mag 7 truly captures the essence of Moab's biking allure.
