Off Road Driving

There are no technical difficulties at all here. It’s basically a trail through a campground on the edge of Bryce Canyon National Park. (No canyon views at this particular spot) nice and easy. Good scenery. We didn’t see any animals today, unfortunately. Note: where the app says this trail begins, there is a locked gate. You have to go about 1/2 mile to a mile down the main road and enter off the right side of the road.

I mountain bikes it. It’s a 2 track trail, uneventful but got to open the lungs and get the blood flowing after a long drive. Close to the RV campground so very convenient . Lots of trail maps posted with “you are here” so very easy to follow.

I was on a bike. Got a little lost and elevation gain was much more than stated (maybe because of my detours?) but the last half was really beautiful. Pronghorn deer, wild mini iris, beautiful openings.

BLM land, drove this while looking for free camping sites on BLM land. Basically upland sparce pine forest. It offered solitude and free camping away from the crowds.
