I've got the TOPO! series software and some ideas from the San Rafael Swell, a SPOT tracker, and 3D relief maps of the whole state on the wall in my study. that combined with a 3DConnexion Mouse & Google Earth makes for some fun recon.

Where can one cross the Green River south of I-70?

Anyone got more details on this route; without local knowlege of these places I'm finding it difficult to locate some of these places on the map.




----cross post in Rockies forum:

Off-Highway recommendations btw Green River/Price UT & SLC

So I'm trying to get from Colorado to SLC next Sunday and looking for some route info about any off-highway routes or other scenic routes that I might take. So far I am finding only day trips on this site that are mostly loops around the SE part of UT.

I pretty much have all day to get to SLC and can enter UT at I-70 near Fruita, CO or 40 near Dinosaur. My final destination is East SLC near I-80 and I-215. I was thinking there must be a connector between Green River or Price and highway 40.

I am comfortable cruising at a fast pace on dirt roads and tracks in Co and WY, but I have no experience in Utah. I have a F650GS Dakar and trail attacks for pavement and light dirt or TKC80s or MT21 knobbies for dirt - I would rather ride out on knobbies.

Suggestions on a fun outbound ride will be appreciated.

thanks

Question

Hey All,

Any updates on this? Any gpx files available for it? I'm trying to build a route that will take me from Moab to Idaho Falls, ID.

Thanks.

The Great Western Trail goes near both.

Thanks Countdown. I tried searching this site by both Google and ADVrider's own search engine and didn't find any tracks.

No worries though, because I found the UT Back Country Discovery Route and it does pretty much what I am asking for.

Thanks again.

Pistol,

As you mentioned, the UBDR should be a good route. Rode it last summer. I had to duck out for a day in northern UT, but met up with the guys again in Pocatello. A little pavement to ride, but not bad. If one can get to Pokie, I wouldn't things that it would be difficult to get to Idaho Falls.

The Discovery trail is an off shoot of the SMTS Statewide Motorized Trail System started in CA years ago. I have kept working on SMTS as a true Dual Sport system with single track and as little pavement as possible, the Discovery trails are more Adv bike routes. In northern UT they are the same for several miles.

There are several web sies on the GWT but they only have maps. It is marked on the ground in several forests in UT adn AZ. There is a long thread on it on ADV about 20 threads down.

I am the only person who is making GPS tracks for it. You can find all my tracks on http://www.gpsxchange.com/

Thanks Countdown. I think I have read the "Great Western Trail" thread all the way through, and have downloaded a lot of the bits and pieces, but not downloaded the whole thing.
