Pipe Dream Trail System

The Pipe Dream trail system (created in 2010) is the closest trail system to Moab. Pipe Dream is a tough trail with very narrow, steep corners and many areas with exposures. This trail is used by many locals for dog walking and hiking; please keep your speed down and watch for hikers. 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.
