The Colorado River Ramble is a 32.6-mile out-and-back ride on flat terrain. The ride follows the Potash-Lower Colorado River Scenic Byway as it parallels the meandering river northwest of Moab. Although the Potash-Lower Colorado River Scenic Byway apparently pays homage to potassium chloride, the real “stars” of this route are the Colorado River and the Native American petroglyphs found on the adjacent cliffs. The Colorado River originates at La Poudre Pass Lake high in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, near the Continental Divide. The river courses in a southwesterly direction, crossing western Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, California (along the Arizona border), and Mexico, eventually emptying—if not evaporating—into the Gulf of California.
