Sidestep North, Instep, and Sidestep South Trails, Klondike Bluffs riding area
The Sidestep and Instep trails are alternate paths along Baby Steps in the Klondike riding area. Sidestep North and South are fairly technical, comparable to EKG in difficulty. Instep is more of a dirt ribbon. The trails are useful either as fun alternates to the most boring section of Baby Steps South, or as a standalone technical lariat loop.
Trail connections, conditions, and alignments will change. Use this guide at your own risk.

Getting there, main (southern) Klondike Bluffs trailhead: Starting at the Colorado River, drive 15 miles north from Moab. Look for a turnout with parking on the right and a sign for Klondike Bluffs Road. There will usually be cars parked there (GPS N 38 44.452' W 109 44.037'). For a longer ride, park here and ride up the road.  Most cyclists will choose to go through the gate and drive 2.7 miles. Keep left at the fork. At 2.8 miles, park your car in the broad parking area by the fence. Begin your ride eastbound across the cattleguard, or hit the singletrack Inside Passage in the northern corner of the parking area.
Northern Klondike Trailheads:  On Highway 191 8.5 miles south of I-70 and 6.5 miles north of the southern Klondike Bluffs road (about 5 miles north of the airport), watch for a "Northern Klondike" sign at N38 49.504 W109 46.893. Turn east (toward the sandstone bluff). Keep to the right as the road winds south around a small hill. After passing Chilkoot Pass parking, turn R on a smaller doubletrack for Agate and Mega Steps parking.
