The Delta-Sevier River Ramble is a 22.8-mile loop on nearly pancake-flat roads in the Sevier Desert. The ride visits Delta, Deseret, and Hinckley in this corner of the Great Basin. The Sevier River originates on the Paunsaugunt Plateau in northwestern Kane County, in southwest Utah. From there, the river flows in a horseshoe shape some 280 miles before emptying into Sevier Lake in west-central Utah. Sevier Lake is nearly always dry, however, because most of the waters of the Sevier River are diverted for irrigation. The lake reappears after heavy, continuous rainstorms, such as occurred during the mid-1980s. Sevier Lake was once part of ancient Lake Bonneville. When the lake does exist, it is endorheic, meaning that it has no outlet and is salty, similar to the Great Salt Lake.
