Seven miles north of Moab, the Moab Brand Trails offer a wide variety of biking fun. The Rockin A trail is a short technical section, only 1.8 miles long. However, the up-and-down quick-turn type of riding makes it a fair amount of work. This trail connects the southern end of the Bar M Loop and the Bar B Loop to the Circle O trail.
Rockin A is significantly more technically than Circle O . But it's half as long. So if you're trying to choose one over the other, Circle O will be more satisfying for an early-intermediate rider.Rockin A is uphill -- and a harder ride -- in the north-to-south clockwise direction. My video shows it clockwise, but most riders prefer to ride from south to north. This puts Rockin A slightly downhill in the toughest sections.
Hard-core bikers will ride Bar M to the Bar B trail (right across from the Rockin A's start), then ride the Bar B loop before entering Rockin A.
After completing Rockin A, ride Circle O before completing your loop. Or, head back to Bar B and drop down Killer B .
