Description

Deadman's Ridge Trail is found on the southern end of the Bar M trails, connecting to Lazy and EZ to the north and Long Branch and Bar-B to the south.

From the Moab Canyon Paved Path, access to Deadman's Ridge starts on a doubletrack across from Rusty Spur. Run west, climbing a bit and winding around to the start of the trail which will be to your right.

The initial climb to get on the lower ridge is not steep and rolls along singletrack and slickrock. The route ramps up a bit from here, climbing steadily to a high point on the trail. It's worth taking a break here to enjoy the 360 degree views, including an incredible look into Arches National Park.

The route from here climbs and descends several times to the Bar-B intersection. The grades aren't steep but the trail has lots of up-and-over rocks. Stay right at the Bar-B intersection to continue on Deadman's.

After another down and up, Deadman's Ridge Trail intersects Bar-B again. From here there's a rare smooth section descending to Long Branch. Stay right to finish the trail with a descent to the Moab Canyon Paved Path.
