MAGNIFICENT 7

SHUTTLE RIDE

What would a local tell you?

Getaway

Intermediate downhill option.  An alternative to Bull Run.  Connects to Great Escape and Arth's Corner at the 4 way intersection.  

Start of the Trail: Trail starts at the 313 parking area.  Find the sign directly at the top of the trail.  Ridden from the 313 parking lot, this downhill trail loses about 330 feet of elevation from start to finish, but gives you 610 feet of descent and 280 feet of climb.

 

Description: Fun rock sections, flowing singletrack over dirt, sand and rock.  Great views of Monitor and Merrimac Buttes and the Sevenmile Wash canyons. The trail crosses Metal Masher jeep road and other 2-tracks several times before reaching Arth’s Corner/Great Escape/Bullrun Trailhead. This allows numerous points to bailout and return to Gemini Bridges road and your car.

 

Bull Run

Downhill option.  Beefy intermediate riding.  


Start of the Trail:  Trail starts 1.6 miles down Gemini Bridges Road after turning off SR-313.  Riding this as a shuttled ride, take Upper Getaway to the Bull Run intersection. 

 

Description: Several sections of the trail are near a cliff edge so controlling your speed is advised.  Be ready for rocky sections, punchy climbs, technical descents and some climbing. The ride is mostly on sandstone (Kayenta Fm) through a Pinion and Juniper forest. Views of the La Sals, Behind The Rocks, & Bull Canyon are stunning. Stay on the trail.

 

Great Escape

Advanced riding.  Physically demanding, twisting downhill on solid rock.  Can be ridden in both directions.  Typically ridden as part of the Magnificent 7 Shuttle Ride.

Start of Trail: Starts at the Bull Run/Getaway/Arth's Corner 4-way junction.  Usually ridden as part of the Magnificent 7 Shuttled Ride.  Can be ridden as part of the Magnificent 7 Looped Ride.

Description: Winding technical, slow, downhill on solid rock.  Be ready for sharp turns, steep moves and advanced moves.  Surface is mostly sandstone, with beautiful views of the La Sal mountain range.  

Little Canyon

Intermediate to advanced riders. Physically demanding. Can be ridden in both directions.  Typically ridden as part of the Mag 7 Loop Ride after riding Great Escape.  

Start of Trail: Mag 7 Shuttled Ride - Ride from the Great Escape intersection towards Goldbar Trail.  Only on Little Canyon for a short time.

Description: Fast, flowing over solid rocks, sand and dirt.  Short but sweet before a big climb.  Enjoy the view, the downhill and the short rest.

 
 

IDK

Intermediate plus riders. Can be ridden in both directions.  Typically ridden as part of the Mag 7 Loop Ride.  

Mag 7 Looped Ride - Start the trail off the Metal Masher 4x4 road.  Technical uphill moves thru Pinyons and Junipers. Follow the paint marks carefully. Stay on the trail to protect microbiotic soil gardens. Trail ends at the Bull Run/Getaway/Great Escape intersection.
