The Bar-M Loop is part of the Moab Brand Trails, which spell out "MOAB" - Bar M, Circle O, Rockin’ A, and Bar B. The trails offer everything from easy winding dirt roads to miles of intermediate slickrock. The Bar-M Loop is a favorite family trail.

Type of Ride
A mellow family ride on a dirt road with rocky sections. Shared motorized.
Take U.S. 191 North about 8 miles to the Bar-M Chuckwagon, turn right to enter the Bar-M private parking lot. Park at the South end. Carefully consult the map at the parking lot kiosk to orient yourself and choose a trail. Follow signs and additional maps provided along the route. TAKE LOTS OF WATER!
From the parking lot ride South towards Moab then turn left in 1.2 miles following the directional signs. At the “Merge” turn left and head back North to complete the Bar-M Loop. At the “Merge” you will encounter trailheads for two other trails. Rockin’A and Bar-B. These trails are more difficult, so make sure to stay left on the Bar-M Loop trail.
Stunning views of the La Sal Mts., Arches National Park, Courthouse Wash, Seven-Mile Canyon and Fisher Towers. Colorful rocks (chert) used in making native tools and weapons years ago will be seen. Please leave the rocks in place.
