Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
The North 40 trails provide a flowier counterpart to the techy rock gnar found on the other side of the Moab Brand Trail System in the Deadman's Ridge Trail.
Of course, North 40 has its own technical parts, but this half of the network is quite approachable for intermediate riders. The Maverick trail included in this route is a downhill-only flow trail filled with berms, rollers, and small jumps.
While Moab isn't known for its flow trails, Maverick's swoop and flow is well-worth the second climb back up the hillside. Once into the main North 40 loop, the singletrack is flowy overall with the occasional rock garden or ledge drop punctuating the flow.
After a flowy section, the trail will pass through or over a rock feature, getting very technical for a moment, then switching back to flow.
For advanced riders, some rock rolls can turn into rock drops, and in the technical sections, alternate lines leading to ledge drops exist for additional challenge.
