We are a committee sponsored by Grand County, Utah whose meetings and membership are open to the public.
Our participation in planning and volunteer trail work have been instrumental in the creation, updating and maintenance of these and many other trails and areas:
· Magnificent 7, 7-Up and others in the Gemini Bridges area.
· Pipe Dream
· The Klondike Bluff Area, which includes: Baby Steps, Mega Steps, EKG, UFO, Little Salty, Dino-Flow, Agate and Jasper trails.
· Moab Brands Trails - Bar-M, Circle-O, Rockin'-A and Bar-B, Lazy, EZ,
Deadman's Ridge, Long Branch, North 40 and of course Killer Bee
· Moonlight Meadows Trail
· The Whole Enchilada Trail System
· Colorado River-Gemini Bridges bike/pedestrian path
· Richardson Amphitheater Trail
There are ample opportunities to volunteer! There are hundred of miles of trails in Grand County which Trail Mix maintains. If you are interested in lending a hand in our efforts to keep the trails in good running condition (or riding, hiking or cross country skiing condition for that matter), please email Moab Trail Mix.
For more information send an email to Moab Trail Mix. Please be patient, we are a rag-tag bunch of volunteers who meet once a month, so we may not get back to you right away.
Our monthly meetings area also a great way to find out what's going on and get involved.
Thanks for visiting the Trail Mix website, and get out there and enjoy the trails!
Lower Captain Ahab is now open. It's in the Amasa Back area. It's a one way (down), double black diamond trail with lots of drops and exposure.
Tyson Swasey, Brian Lugers and a bunch of Poison Spider trail builders have combined with the Trail Mix crew and many other volunteers to finish the first half of this new trail.
Also, check out the new Biking Trail Overview Map on the Maps Page!

Trail Mix appreciates donations of any amount. All of every donation goes directly to building and maintaining trails. There are no paid managers, clerks, purchasers or web builders. Donated funds go to paying for equipment, land access and the few paid trail workers that trail Mix hires.
Think about it; if you donate to Trail Mix, you can say, "Yeah, I helped pay for this trail," while riding with your buddies. They will be impressed!
Donations can be sent to:
Canyonlands Natural History Association (or just CNHA)

Make the check payable to Canyonlands Natural History Association (or just CNHA) and be sure to put "Trail Mix" in the For line. For more information go to the donation page on CNHA's website.
