The Escalante Valley Ramble is a 23.7-mile out-and-back ride on false flats and gentle rollers, with a few short climbs and descents. The route travels from Enterprise, past Hebron (ghost town), and into the Dixie National Forest. The Escalante Valley forms the transitional zone between the Escalante Desert to the north and the Markagunt Plateau and Bull Valley Mountains to the east and south, respectively. The Dominguez-Escalante expedition skirted the edge of the valley during their 1776 trek. Elevations in the valley range from about 5,000 feet on the fringes of the desert to 11,000 feet in the mountains. Proximity to the mountains enables the capture of runoff for the irrigation of crops and for stocking water supplies.
