Moab, UT: Amasa Back

A staple for any Moab mountain biking trip, this 9.6-mile out-and-back on Amasa Back features big steps and even bigger exposure.

Moab, UT: Amasa Back-Rockstacker-Jackson's Loop

This 11.3-mile Moab loop with up-close cliffside panoramas is a sure path to rock-hopping joy.

Moab: Amasa Back Loop

Amasa Back has long been one of Moab's classic out and back rides.  The climb up the jeep road is filled with technical steeps and the views are absolutely stellar the whole way.  What Amasa lacked was great singletrack. lacks no more!

This ride climbs up Amasa Back on the traditional jeep road route, hits Pothole Arch and then returns on the ultra technical Rockstacker route finally finishing on Jackson Trail singletrack to close the loop.  This ride is certainly among the best Moab has to offer.
