Skyline Drive Professional Review and Guide

"What the White Rim Trail is to Utah’s canyon country, Skyline Drive is to Utah’s plateau country—a multi-day, epic bike tour along a famed Utah scenic backway. Whereas the White Rim penetrates the Colorado Plateau’s layer-cake strata of sun-baked sandstones, Skyline Drive traces the 10,500-foot crest of central Utah’s Wasatch Plateau, dancing among clouds and scraping the belly of the heavens. Along Skyline, you will not face chiseled peaks and improbable mountain passes, which characterize northern Utah’s formidable Wasatch Range.

The buttes are mountain cameos, horizontal strata with escarped sides—they are mountains of circumdenudation.” Tread: Light duty dirt roads and doubletracks throughout. Although many sections are suitable for passenger cars, your support vehicle should have high clearance and preferably four wheel drive for rougher parts."
