Little Canyon is accessed just below Great Escape and and Arth’s. It has plenty of fun drops and hop-ups as well. Mostly slickrock. It is down hill as you continue from Great Escape or Arth’s and is just steep enough to keep your adrenaline flowing, but to climb back up to Gemini Bridges or all the way to the start of Getaway. If this is confusing, suffice to say it is a mountain biking extravaganza of all things that help make Moab great! This whole Magnificent 7 area is on the top of our list for both intermediate and expert riders.
