The outing makes a good morning or evening ride, as it involves a long, potentially very hot uphill. The scenery seems to change at every bend in the road. At about three miles, you’ll top a rise and look back far to the north-northwest, across Grand Valley at the imposing Roan Cliffs and Book Cliffs. Farther up the road, sandstone bluffs and mesas preclude long-range vistas. As you approach the end, you’ll look down on irrigated-green cow bottoms clashing magnificently with their stark surroundings. The drive to the trailhead from Moab is nothing to sneeze at either, as the road winds below the impossibly red walls of the river’s canyon and past features including the phenomenal Fisher Towers. The 17.5-mile ride involves an out-and-back spur leading to a 6.5-mile loop. It provides a prolonged aerobic workout as it ascends five miles on gravel, as well as a splash of technical riding on a sandy, rock-strewn four-wheel-drive trail. The descent at ride’s end can be quite bumpy, over a gravel surface with embedded cobbles. General location: 34 miles northeast of Moab.
