|JEM Upper Doubletrack - Goosebumps Loop
The JEM Doubletrack (JEM DT) is a dirt road along the northern skirts of Gooseberry Mesa. It was the uphill part of the old classic JEM loop ride, and has now found new life as a loop route that combines Goosebumps and upper Dead Ringer. The doubletrack is a nice route for beginners and is compatible with tow-trailers. I recommend that true beginners and out-of-shapers go only to the viewpoint spur (the blue side-trip on the map below), for a two-mile round trip. This loop ride is 9 miles and is for intermediate riders.
