"This 27-mile point-to-point ride begins by tracing dirt double-track roads through an area webbed with old prospecting roads. Staying on the route often demands great attention to detail (although the trail does typically follow the most beaten path).
Hard-packed sand, as well as soft wash sand—particularly annoying after extended dry weather—is encountered over the first 17 miles; then, from Yellow Hill on down through Pritchett Canyon, the trail turns into a rugged four-wheel-drive byway as it drops off ledge after ledge of Navajo sandstone. Loose cobbles help keep things interesting, too. It’s a long one, with enough aerobic and technical challenges to please any advanced fat-tire fanatic, yet manageable by intermediate to advanced-intermediate riders. The scenery encompasses open flats, views of the orange-hued fins of Behind the Rocks, a terrific overlook on Kane Creek Canyon and the marvelous, wild beauty of Pritchett Canyon, which serves as a portion of the boundary of the Behind the Rocks Wilderness Study Area. General location: South of Moab, between US 191 and Kane Creek Road."
