Bear River Valley Ramble Professional Review and Guide
"The Bear River Valley Ramble is a 17.2-mile clockwise loop on flat and gently rolling terrain. The route is through the Bear River Valley, a spacious, agricultural valley situated between the Blue Spring Hills on the west, and the Wellsville Mountains on the east. The ride starts and ends in Garland and visits Collinston, Deweyville, and Tremonton. The valley offers numerous, lightly traveled roads that are ideal for cycling. The Bear River Valley Ramble incorporates only a selection of these roads.
The Bear River follows an incredibly long course—500 miles—in snaking its way from northeastern Utah, through southwestern Wyoming, into southeastern Idaho, into and out of Bear Lake, and back into northern Utah, before emptying into the Great Salt Lake. The river originates high in the Uinta Mountains. By the time the Bear River reaches Box Elder County, it is in its last phase, having merged with the Malad River flowing out of southern Idaho. The river meanders through a picturesque, predominantly agricultural region in Box Elder before flowing into a muddy delta at the northeastern corner of the Great Salt Lake."
