A great multi-use trail just across the UT border in CO. There are some amazing flowy sections that meander near the bluff for spectacular views of the Colorado river down below. The trail is open to motorcycles as well, but every moto I've ever crossed was very courteous. The trail is extremely exposed, so keep in mind summer heat and wind events. The trail can be ridden in multiple ways. The most bang for your buck is riding it as an out-and-back. But I appreciate riding it as a counter clockwise loop, riding down the Western Rim trail and returning on the double track/single track back to the eastern start.

Access Info

You can park in a variety of locations once you take the Rabbit Valley exit. Some offer a longer approach, and some a quicker start.
