Escape from Moscow is the most technically challenging of the 4 trails heading up Horse Ridge. It’s a more direct route to the top than all but Sand Canyon – which we don’t recommend riding up. This mountain bike trail starts out with a fairly gentle climb up the canyon off of Parkway – and soon turns left and heads up the ridge at a feverish pace. The trail is more rocky and technically challenging at this point and stays fairly rocky up to the top.
A mile or so up the ridge the trail intersects Parkway coming in from the left. Stay to the right on Parkway to head up the ridge further.
This is primarily a winter riding area due to the sandy soils. Winter rain and snow doesn’t hit this area as hard, and trails are often prime in the winter months.
