The Edge trail is located in the Klonzo Mountain Biking Area about 12 miles north of Moab, Utah. The trail begins off of the Willow Springs Road, across from Parking Area A, and follows the edge of the hill to its upper end on the Midway trail at the point where the Red Hot trail ends and the Roller Coaster trail begins. Along the way it makes connections with the Hotdog and Topspin trails making it a good option for getting around the South Klonzo area from Parking Area A.


For this post we began at the upper end of the trail and rode from Midway down to the Willow Springs Road.


The trail heads west from the Midway trail with the Roller Coaster trail on its left and the Hotdog trail below it on the right.


The first tenth of a mile stays on top of the ridge of the hill.


At the 0.14 mile point a short connector breaks off on the left that leads up to the Topspin trail.


From there the trail begins descending into the valley as it clings to the 'edge' of the hillside wrapping around the contours of the mountain.


There are no very difficult points on the trail just lots of purdy on a fun course.


Down in the valley at the half mile point the Hotdog trail, that stretches from here to the Midway trail, begins on the right.



The last stretch of the trail crosses the wash where it comes out on the Willow Springs Road across from Parking Area A. People beginning at Parking Area A commonly use the Edge trail to get up to Topspin and the other trails south of the Willow Springs Road. For us, we turned around and followed the Edge trail back across the wash and got on the Hotdog trail for our next ride. On this day there were also 3 people out running trails, which is very common in the Klonzo area, that were beginning their run with the Edge trail. If you would like to see it for yourself then all you have to do is grab your bike or 'Take a hike'.
