Baby Steps uphill, Mega Steps down to EKG
Mega Steps is an uphill/downhill route on the far north end of the Klondike Area trails complex. At the top, it connects to the far north corner of the Baby Steps Loop. After heading northwest along the ridgeline, it turns and descends to the Copper Ridge Road. Mega Steps itself is 3.2 miles in length. But any ride that reaches it will be at least 12 miles total. You can reach the trail via Copper Ridge Road at the bottom, via EKG 1/2 mile from the bottom, or by Baby Steps at the top. (You can reach that upper junction with Baby Steps by climbing Baby Steps North, Little Salty, or Baby Steps South.)

Getting there: Starting at the Colorado River, drive 15 miles north from Moab. Look for a turnout with parking on the right and a sign for Klondike Bluffs Road. There will usually be cars parked there (GPS N 38 44.452' W 109 44.037'). For a longer ride, park here and ride up the road.  Most cyclists will choose to go through the gate and drive 2.7 miles. Keep left at the fork. At 2.8 miles, park your car in the broad parking area by the fence. Go eastbound across the cattleguard through the fence and begin your ride.
