Intrepid Trail System At Dead Horse Point

View a map of this trail.

Moab is internationally famous for its epic mountain biking, but the Intrepid Trail System offers slickrock riding for beginners. Relatively level terrain, gentle slopes and spectacular views of the Colorado River and Canyonlands National Park make the trail very family-friendly.

The Intrepid Trail System offers three hiking and biking loops ranging from one to nine miles with varying degrees of difficulty. The easiest and shortest loop is Intrepid, followed by the 4.2-mile Great Pyramid, with nine-mile Big Chief as the most challenging. The nested loop trails offer opportunities for visitors of all ages and abilities, and provide breathtaking views.

The Intrepid Trail was made possible through great public/private partnerships. Intrepid Potash, Inc., for which the trail is named, gave $20,000 for construction of a new single-track, non-motorized trail system. The trail was built by Trail Mix, a local volunteer organization, and volunteers from the Utah Conservation Corps, American Conservation Experience and Moab Trails Alliance. The National Park Service and Utah State Parks also worked on the project.

Dead Horse Point State Park is located approximately 30 miles from Moab. The park also offers camping and day-use facilities, visitor center, and naturalist programs. For more information, please call (435) 259-2614.
