A Classic Moab MTB Trail

Jeep Safari is winding down, so I had to wind up and take on “Cliff Hanger” aka. Amasa Back. Just east of Hurrah Pass on Kane Creek. This trail is the perfect one for the testosterone cycle jockey who thinks he can handle the likes of “the portal”, or “the Gold Bar Rim” trails. Once you get on it, then you wimper a little, then you wimper a lot because the climb is grueling. If you are able to muster a few  extra sandstone shelf climbing skills, then you can yell for JOY! If not and I’m talking to you – little sissy baby man, go back to town and order a tiny cup  of dippin’ dots and wait for the gals and guys that have the right kind of respect for this type of challenging ride to return. For those that do make it to the top, the rewards are two-fold providing a spectacular view of the colorado river and an payback descent over the previous climb.  Happy Trails to you!
