Burro Pass Professional Review and Guide

"To most fat-tire zealots who seek divinity on Moab’s lithified dune field, the La Sal Mountains are little more than an idyllic backdrop to countless slickrock photographs. During spring and fall when Canyon Country is blessed with comfortable climes, and when most of us make our semi-annual pilgrimage to Utah’s mountain-bike Mecca, the La Sals are largely unapproachable. Triumphant 12,000-foot-plus peaks harbor snow well into late spring, and by autumn are dusted by pre-winter flurries.

A midriff of verdant forests overlain by snowy caps separates the ultramarine sky from a sun-baked mélange of sandstone fins and towers, mesas and plateaus, canyons and valleys. This is how the mountainous island is portrayed time and time again in postcards of and photo essays on Canyonlands. Along the Burro Pass loop, you’ll experience the allure of the La Sal Mountains. Tread: 8.5 miles of gravel roads and good doubletracks, .8 mile of not-so-good doubletrack, 3.2 miles of singletrack."
