Neck Spring is a 5.8-mile trail starting at The Neck within the Island in the Sky portion of Canyonlands National Park. It’s rolling, had some shade, a spring, great views and lots of history.
Lollipopping Chesler Park and The Joint Trail is one of the best runs in the Moab area. The first and last 2.9 miles to and from Chestler Park are the same trail. From an overview point, the pass through into Chestler Park (a great lunch spot) making a loop of Chesler Park and the The Joint Trail adds five miles.
Pipe Dream is a beautiful rolling trail above Moab and along the wall that defines the western side of town. It can be an out and back or a loop covering up to 9.4 miles and 1000 vertical feet.
The plan was simple: Get bike and boat on the river just downstream from Fisher Towers, float to Big Bend, assemble the bike, and ride back up to the starting point. The next morning, for good measure, I’d run the Canyonlands Half Marathon.
