Great Escape - Lariat ride via Bull Run, 19.7 miles
The Great Escape trail is a bikes-only singletrack in the Gemini Bridges area near Moab. Great Escape itself is 3.5 miles long with just over 400 vertical feet of elevation change. It's intermediate in technical requirement, and not too tough aerobically. The top altitude (near Gemini Bridges) is 5120 feet. The trail begins on the Gemini Bridges Road (straight across from Arth's Corner singletrack), about 0.4 miles downhill from the Gemini Bridges main parking and the Bridges hiking trail. It extends downhill to join the Little Canyon Singletrack about 1/2 mile from where Little Canyon ST ends on the Gold Bar Rim road.
