Grand Canyon Loop out of Vegas
My friend Roger and I just completed a 5 day / ~1200 mile loop around the

I cleaned up my active tracks and posted them here for others to enjoy.
A few points:
- We had favorable (dry) weather conditions......it would be tough to cover the mileage and enjoy the ride if these roads/trails were wet/muddy....
- I've included a few optional tracks on the northern side......see the note at the bottom of post one in the trip report.......if you've never ridden in the area I'd suggest taking the optional track over towards the Bar 10 which travels past the remains of Butch Cassidy's Hideout (not really Butch's place.....but the remains of an old structure is marked with a waypoint).......any, this route is more scenic than the Elbow Canyon route IMHO......also suggest visiting the Bar 10 ranch/viewpoint and Toroweap if you have time......both are worthy stops
- The Kane Trail above the North Rim isn't worth the effort IMHO......I left it in the file but I also drew in the suggested path which is to just proceed up Burma Rd. to 89A then drop back down to the flats on Buffalo Ranch Rd.

- There are two spots on the track from the South Rim to Seligman that could be improved upon (Ranch with 3 gates and Tin House).......I'm hoping someone else will figure out better routes in those areas and post active track patches around the ranch with 3 gates and Tin House
- SEE UPDATE BELOW - NO PERMITS FOR BIKES OF ANY KIND from the Hualapai to ride down to the CO. river from Peach Springs......
- Best not be shy about sand when you ride down towards Temple Bar Rd./Triangle
Enjoy the tracks/Have fun!
