Moab trail conditions are generally great but believe it or not we do get snow and rain which can make the trails a muddy mess. The clay content on some trails can wear your drivetrain and destroy derailleurs. We recommend that when the trails are this way not to ride them as you will leave big ruts. Once these ruts are made they will dry out this way and make the trails rough and not fun to ride for quite some time. The amount of trail work needed to fix this damage can take days just from a couple of riders. We have created the trails conditions page to let you know when the trails are in good shape to ride. We update this page as conditions change so make sure to bookmark this page to keep up to date!
Moab Is Great For Riding All Year Round…Mostly!
Spring and Fall bring plenty of sunshine and great weather for spending the day outside. Short sleeves and sunblock are the uniform but weather can be unpredictable so bring a lightweight rain jacket just in case. Even when it gets up to 80 degrees in the day, evenings can still get down to freezing. Bring some warm clothes for the mornings and evenings. Water is the key to a good time in summer. Be sure that you carry at least 125 oz of water. Morning and evening riding is great even in the hottest times of year.
Moab winters are mild and generally sunny. Snow storms are infrequent and accumulation usually melts within a day. Warm gloves, a rain shell, and a light hat that fits under your helmet will make the day. Conditions are great and you’ve got the trails to yourself.
