The Lazy trail is located in the Moab Brands Mountain Biking Area north of Moab, Utah. The trail begins on its south end off of the Bar M Loop, near the point where the Deadman's Ridge trail also begins, and travels north back towards the Moab Brands trailhead. Many riders combine the Lazy trail with the EZ trail for a loop ride. The Lazy trail also comes in handy when riding to and from Deadman's Ridge and the Bar B Loop trail.


This post is beginning at the south end of the Lazy trail where it connects to the Bar M Loop.


The EZ trail makes a connection to the Lazy trail just over the first hill.


The hills on the Lazy trail are pretty gentle and easy to get up.


For the scenery it is the typical gorgeous fare for Moab with red rock cliffs contrasted by the desert greenery and blue sky.


The trail makes a nice run from its high point as it descends across the flat open range toward the trailhead.


On the day of this ride the Poison Spider THAW mountain bike rally was attracting a lot of people to the Moab Brands area where they were able to test ride the latest in mountain bikes.


The Lazy trail comes to an end at its junction with the EZ trail. From here it is about a quarter mile back to the trailhead. We rode the Lazy trail after riding the Bar B Loop and from there we jumped on the North 40 and Maverick trails. We actually rode all 30+ miles of trails in the Moab Brands area in 2 days. It was a heck of a workout but loads of fun. If you would like to see it for yourself then all you have to do is grab your bike or 'Take a hike'.
