The Three Lakes loop explores the La Sal Mountains’ Geyser Pass region, which is the topographic break separating the central and northern group of peaks. Although the route utilizes unavoidable dirt roads, it incorporates large sections of elusive singletracks. Be forewarned, these trails are not the buffed-out tracks of the Wasatch Range or Brian Head; these are exacting trails that test mind-set against muscle, against metal, against mountain. If you are game for a singletrack adventure, then you will score big in the La Sals. The trip passes three small lakes: Oowah, Clark, and Warner. Each is nestled in a distinctively pristine alpine setting. Between the lakes, much of the ride threads through forests of aspen and fir that engulf a patchwork of meadows sprinkled with flowers. More impressive are the desert views that extend 100 miles from the mountain’s side across Canyon Country and to distant plateaus. Tread: 8 miles of gravel and light duty dirt roads, 8 miles of singletrack.
