A great place to take the family. We did the whole blue loop which our boys fully enjoyed.
Had a broken spoke when I arrived. The bike shop fixed it while we got ready then gave the bike the once over with other things that need attention.
Biked the long orienteering, got a few looks from walkers but the walking trails would make some fab biking routes too.

Must spend more time here!!!

Take the time to try this place out - you will not be disappointed by the variety. If you're not a fan of endless climbing you'll be happy here, there's plenty of ups and downs in this place, all of them rewarding.

Love this place. Lots of variety in the trails here, especially the red. Blues are good for a starter. Reds offer everything you could want from very tight and twisty to rocky and scary. Some big drop options too.

They're building a new visitor centre just now which looks brilliant and not that far off completion. The bike shop here is truly excellent and Sam who runs it cannot do enough to help.

Next on my list is McMoab and the blacks.

A great trail centre! The blue, red and black loops are all amazing and well maintained!
The black in particular is a really long trail with some pretty big climbs and technical sections, McMoab being a great challenge however you don't want to try it in the wet! And the downhills are long and fast,
With a new visitor centre now open year round the facilities are excellent!
Overall a great couple days of riding can be done here!

I didnt research to much as i like to just try new trails and see for myself, first ride and we picked Kerroughtree. We started off doing the red twister then half way round you ve got to make a decision wether to just finish the red twister or add on the Black Craigs which adds around 8-9 km but i can assure you its well worth it. Not just for the Mc moab but what happens after is a lung busting ride up Heartbreak hill rewarded by what seems like mile after mile of slightly down hill twisting, technical rolling singletrack, i absolutely loved it i cant wait to go back.

Rewarding XC trail when you combine the Red and Black it's probably one of the toughest days out at a trail centre short of doing constant laps of Laggan on an 80mm Hardtail.
Great mix of terrain types, and McMoab is just amazing as is the view from the top of the Black (you have to work for it)
Bad Points
Rode it after a month and a half off the bike due to injury, was cramping all the way back up the road!

In my opinion best 7stane. Red route trail challenging. Even on the wettest day you are relatively dry. Well thought out and natural. If you are expecting a trail that is as smooth as a motorway this is not the trail for you.
The local bike shop is not only helpful but so so friendly.
Bad Points
After over a year of diversions, the regulars can see light at the end of the tunnel. New visitor center is opening in the next few weeks.
