In the already famous and highly celebrated Moab mountain biking area, North Klondike stands out as any intermediate biker’s dream. The combination of fast and elegant dirt singletrack and Moab’s quintessential slickrock makes North Klondike’s loop an excellent introduction to Utah’s premier cycling area. The trails here are not highly technical, but they are far from trivial. Areas such as Baby Steps and Dino Flow offer speedy and flowy dirt sections through rock outcroppings and down tiny drainages, while Mega Steps’ uphill climb on mixed slickrock will challenge your endurance. If you’re a cyclist looking to push your skills to the next level, or you just wanna cruise and have a good time, North Klondike’s got you covered. Find out why Moab is one of the best MTB places in Utah from Katherine Peach, hiker, backcountry skier, mountain biker, packrafter, and Aspen local.

  • Test your cycling skills on some of the best intermediate trails in Moab

  • Discover the unique combination of fast singletrack and bumpy slickrock

  • The loop’s speed and relative technical simplicity guarantee an adrenaline-filled experience

Great Mountain biking tours
Julie K. about Rim Tours on Tripadvisor

We loved riding with Rim tours so much we decided to do it twice during our week stay in Moab. Our bikes were amazing, the guides terrific and we got to see so much on the bikes in Dead Horse State Park and North Klondike trails. A really really great activity to do while in Moab. The trails give you lots of technical/difficult options, which was great for our family.

Great guides, top-notch well-maintained bikes, awesome experience
Michael G. about Rim Tours on Tripadvisor

We did two half-day tours, Navajo Rocks and North Klondike, and they were both awesome. The guides were great and very knowledgeable, our Santa Cruz bikes looked brand new, and the tour group sizes were perfect. Tons of fun!

Highlight of our trip
Sharra W. about Rim Tours on Tripadvisor

We wanted to make sure to fit in Moab for the mountain biking, but our RimTours guided ride around North Klondike completely exceeded our expectations. The terrain was super fun, the guides were knowledgeable, friendly, challenged us, and kept us moving. We were an active family with a 10 yr old daughter and 13 yr old son and everyone had a great experience. Our son just wants to get back to Moab ASAP to do more mountain biking.

Whole Enchilada Ride and Klondike
Scott H. about Rim Tours on Tripadvisor

Had a great guide, Sam. Well organized, paid attention to what we needed but let us ride to our limits. Good fun.

  • What you get on this adventure:

      • An experienced MTB guide with extensive local knowledge of the area
      • Half or full-day of mountain biking depending on your chosen itinerary
      • Helmet and hydration pack
      • Transportation to the trailhead

    What’s not included:

      • Bike rentals — you can rent a bike for an extra fee of $25
      • Bike insurance ($15) — optional
      • Transportation to Moab
      • Accommodations
      • Food and snacks

    If you have your own bike, feel free to bring it with you. If not, you can rent an aluminum frame bike for $25 or upgrade it to a Tier 2 carbon frame bike for $40.

  • These tours are suitable for riders with good to excellent fitness levels. You will need to be able to bike between four and eight hours, depending on the itinerary you choose. After booking, your guide will determine the group’s skill level and capabilities and cater the day to your specific abilities. Keep in mind, opting for the full-day option means more biking, which is strenuous even if you stay on easier trails.

  • Previous mountain bike experience is recommended. Trail surfaces may include uneven terrain and narrow trails, singletrack, with occasional obstacles (roots, rocks, sand). Hills and descents are moderate to strenuous and require some skill. Riders with minimal mountain bike experience but who have road biking skills or a strong fitness level, along with an adventurous spirit, should be suitable for these tours.

  • Here’s what you’ll need:

      • Wear comfortable riding or athletic clothing, preferably moisture-wicking or synthetic material
      • Sneakers or sport shoes
      • Breathable outside layer or jacket
      • Sunglasses
      • Plenty of water, water bottle, or hydration bladder
      • Daypack with snacks
      • Biking gloves are optional but recommended
      • Bike repair kit
      • Toiletries (sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)

    Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.

  • Group sizes and prices:

      • The group size for these tours is usually between 1-6 people with one guide.
      • Costs per person decrease as the group grows, so it’s the perfect opportunity to climb with friends and family.
      • Standard tours require a minimum of 2 people to run. If you are a party of one, and if you are willing to pay the solo rate, your guide guarantees that your tour will run — even if you end up being the only person on it.

    Mountain biking in Dead Horse Point can be arranged for bigger groups. Contact us prior to booking.

    Min. age requirements:

      • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
      • Children as young as 10 are able to go on trips with a legal guardian. That said, if you have a young rider strong enough to handle sustained climbs (either riding or walking their bike) of hundreds of feet, and rough terrain, then they may be able to participate on a case-by-case basis.

    If your group has riders under the age of 18, contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.

  • To get to North Klondike, most people fly into Salt Lake City International Airport. From there, you can take a shuttle or rent a car for a 4,5-hour drive to Moab. You can also fly into Denver International Airport and take a direct local flight to Moab, or take a local flight to Grand Junction Colorado Airport and rent a car or take a shuttle for a 2-hour drive to Moab.

    Once you and your guide agree on the details of your itinerary, your guide will suggest the best place to meet, whether that’s at the guide shop in Moab or a predetermined location.
