Pristine Moab singletrack across slickrock and Navajo Sandstone with epic views of the surrounding mountains and "Behind the Rocks".

HyMasa trail is the latest in the fantastic Kane Creek Mountain Biking trail network and is now the preferred route for connecting to the iconic Captain Ahab Loop, allowing riders to bypass larges portions of the Amasa Back / Cliffhanger Jeep trail.

To get there take Kane Creek Blvd. from Moab into Kane Springs Creek Canyon. The road will quickly turn to dirt and you will pass several trailheads until the well marked Cliffhanger / Amasa Back Trailhead.

You'll follow the dirt road a short distance but then will quickly hit the HyMasa singletrack down across the creek and then back up Amasa Back for a short distance. There's well marked signage for the HyMasa sections to keep you on track.

At the top you can either take the Captain Ahab loop, Amasa Back to the Rockstacker and Jackson Trail areas, or back down HyMasa to the trailhead.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
