The Experience

The canyonlands of southern Utah stretch across the Colorado Plateau like an enormous wind-scoured sculpture garden. Soaring sandstone spires tinged in brilliant orange and red. Intricate canyon labyrinths in a million crimson variations. Around every delicate arch, behind each massive monolith, the landscape offers solitude – and invites exploration. To Edward Abbey, this part of the state was “the best part by far.” To us, “best” may be an understatement! Journey from inn to inn on bike-friendly paved roads Quaking aspens, whispering pines, brilliant red rock are a feast for the senses Bike, hike and be awestruck in Arches National Park Soak up incredible views of the Colorado River Epic high-desert vistas from quiet Colorado National Monument


DAYS 1-2 Quaking aspens, whispering pines, brilliant red rock and the gentle whir of your bicycle wheels set the mood during a peaceful warm-up ride alongside the Colorado River Enjoy a ride on La Sal Mountain Loop Scenic Byway, which serves up an inspiring array of canyon country scenery, including the region’s nearly 13,000-foot peaks – particularly picturesque if they’re still capped with snow. DAY 3 Bike, hike and be awestruck in Arches National Park, home to the world’s greatest concentration of natural sandstone arches, as well as massive balanced rocks, towering pinnacles and enormous fins Marvel at breathtaking Delicate Arch (one of Utah’s most famous icons) and the unusual Double Arch – more than 100 million years of erosion have contributed to these swooping, soaring rock sculptures As vistas of magnificent geologic formations unfold before you, pedal down Abbey Road to the outdoor lover’s mecca of Moab. DAYS 4-5 Soak up an incredible view of the Colorado River as it twists through a gooseneck canyon 2,000 feet below you A thrilling ridgetop ride takes you through Dead Horse Point State Park, followed by an exhilarating descent to the Colorado River and back into Moab From the Colorado National Monument, spin on the amazingly engineered Rim Rock Drive past epic vistas of the Colorado River and Grand Mesa Built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, this road blends seamlessly into the landscape, offering an unobstructed overview of the high-desert panorama Keep an eye out – you may be lucky enough to spot a desert bighorn sheep or a golden eagle flying overhead.
