Jackson Hole Loop
The Jackson Hole Loop is one of the meanest little rides in Moab. But this loop offers great scenery, several miles of easy cool cruising, more than a few riding challenges, an insane portage, and a gnarly tech downhill. No other ride in Moab gives you "crazy-biker" bragging rights like Jackson Hole. The ride is a 22.3 mile loop. Bottom altitude is 3950 feet, after the plunge from the ridge down to Kane Creek. Peak altitude is 4800 at Hurrah Pass. Total climbing (on the bike) is around 1800 vertical feet, plus you'll climb 500 vertical on foot while carrying your bike.
