It's near Behind the Rocks...a little loop that the fat tire bikes use in their 24 hr race. Features only one obstacle of any consequence at all...this ledge at the top of a hill (photo). It circles around Picture Frame Arch (photo).

We found it with Latitude 40* Map's "Moab East" map.....looked easy, and as it was pouring rain most of the afternoon, we thought it would be scenic (it was) and that we couldn't get into any trouble (we didn't).

The whole trip was just great really. Rained on Monday, snow flurries on Tuesday, cold on Wednesday, sunny Thurs/Fri. None of it stopped us from wheeling...ok, changed the trail choices some....but all of it was really fun and very, very beautiful.

Our first time in Moab....definitely won't be the last!!

Here's a few more shots of our trip>

Looks like a beautiful trip! That last picture rocks! Which trail was it taken on? Can't wait to head down there in 11 days!

That's at the top of Metal Masher trail. Really fun trail, not as scary as the name implies (but then, we bypassed Widowmaker Hill & Rock Chucker since we were alone).

Top of the World is a little out of the way, but just absolutely spectacular. The trail is a series of ledges, none really tough, maybe 18" to 24" tops, lots of work arounds if you need 'em....basically a really, really,really rough road.....but very much worth the effort for the viewscape, believe me.

Here's another shot taken up at Metal Masher>
