Agate and Jasper Loops, Klondike Bluffs Mountain Biking Area
The Agate and Jasper Loops are easy and short trails in gently rolling terrain west of the Copper Ridge Road in the Klondike Bluffs riding area. These trails are non-motorized singletrack, and are suitable for beginning riders. The trail system is very well marked and easy to navigate. The loops can be reached from the main southern Klondike Bluffs trailhead (see below) for a longer but mellow ride. See the by-the-mile ride description below for a ten-miler. Or you can drive directly to the northern trailhead and hit both loops in an easy figure eight of 4 miles.

Getting there, southern trailhead: Starting at the Colorado River, drive 15 miles north from Moab. Look for a Klondike Bluffs sign and a turnout on the right. There will usually be cars parked there.

Northern Klondike TH:  On Highway 191 8.5 miles south of I-70 and 6.5 miles north of the southern Klondike Bluffs road (about 5 miles north of the airport), watch for a "Northern Klondike" sign at N38 49.504 W109 46.893. Turn east (toward the sandstone bluff). Keep to the right as the road winds south around a small hill. 1.2 miles from the highway as the road is heading east toward the bluff, fork right on a fainter jeep road N38 49.103 W109 46.061, as the main road continues to the dinosaur tracks. (Park here if the road is in bad shape.) At mile 1.6, you'll come to the TH for the Jasper and Agate loops (N38 49.087 W109 45.625) on your right. At 2.0 miles, you're at the bottom of Mega Steps at a larger parking area N38 49.179 W109 45.417. To reach Baby Steps, head south on the doubletrack Copper Ridge Road.
