Klonzo Mountain BikeTrails
Klonzo is a new trail system to the Moab Field Office. These trails, built in 2012, are an excellent new system with a good mix of trail surfaces at an intermediate skill level. Many of the trails are a dirt surface with sections of rolling slickrock humps similar to the Sovereign Trail (although generally easier). The total mileage for the system is 24 miles. This includes the Zephyr Trail, which connects the Klonzo and Moab Brands mountain biking areas (.8 mile on singletrack and 3.2 miles on a road). All of the trails are intermediate with small tougher sections and have proven to be fast and fun with moderate climbs that can usually be completed in the saddle. In general, the trails are more fun running counter clockwise and are signed as such. Many different loops can be knit together on this system allowing for riders to return again and again and have a different ride each time.
There are two trailheads (A and B). Both are about 2.5 miles out on the Willow Springs Road, which is about 10 miles north of the Colorado River Bridge on Highway 191. Generally the Willow Springs Road is 2 wheel-drive, however it crosses Courthouse Wash which often requires 4 wheel-drive and occasionally requires high clearance as well. Riders who don’t want to risk the dry wash crossing can park before the wash and ride the extra 1.5 miles to the trailheads. There are maps and signs at every junction in the system. Riders should bring their own maps for navigation. Maps are available as printouts off of this site or for purchase on waterproof paper at all local bike shops.
Riding Season: March to November
Directions: There are two trailheads (A and B). Both are about 2.5 miles out the Willow Springs Road, which is about 10 miles north of the Colorado River Bridge on Highway 191.
