This trail will not be your Moab favorite. It's rarely done as a stand-alone trail because of a miserable 1/3 mile bike portage. Its purpose is to offer a connection to the Moab Rim trail for those who absolutely MUST do a loop ride.
Note: Hidden Valley is NOT "Hidden Canyon" -- which is a ride out near Bartlett Wash.
From the kiosk at the trailhead, go south on singletrack and ride as long as you can (about 0.1 mile). Then start hiking.
Almost done. Keep climbing.
For more info on the loop ride, see the Moab Rim page.
