The Klonzo Trail system is non-motorized singletrack designed for mountain biking. It lies between the Sovereign / Salt Wash trail system and the border of Arches National Park. The trailhead is on the Willow Springs Road, just 3/4 mile east of the Sovereign Trail parking area. Four miles of the trails are now open for riding (November 2012), with additional riding options to be added soon. The riding is intermediate technical, suitable for advanced beginners. You can customize the length of the ride.
