We finished our 10 day 2200 mile trip that included a lot of riding in the St George area.

My captioned pictures are here:

I posted a filtered version of our GPS tracks in ADV GPS Tracks Rockies.

Here are some highlights in the area.

Casto Canyon - a fun scenic ATV trail east of Panguitch UT



We did Pennsylvania Canyon south of Mt Ella again. The upper part thru the stream bed had been greatly improved since last year. The lower part thru the hills was kind of steep and rocky and hadn't seen much maintenance.

A nice scenic ride thru Joshua trees west of Alamo NV to Badger Canyon.




We found going up Elbow Canyon outside Mesquite a bit of a challenge. But everybody made it with no real problems. I could not decide whether to put it in the trip, but RRR's report from a couple of months ago made it look okay. We were glad we did it.









We discovered that by hiking a little we could see the infamous Lava Falls rapids from Toroweap.








A spectacular view of Kanab Creek Canyon west of Jacob Lake. We had to down and up a slightly nasty hill to get here and some of the guys decided not to try it.




We really enjoyed the riding on minor forest roads in the Kaibob National forest west of Jacob Lake and north of the North Rim Lodge.

Crazy Jug Point



I would again like to thank Red Rock Rider for maintaining this thread and giving us lots of ideas for lots of great places to ride in the area.
