The San Rafael bike route is a technically challenging route. This undeveloped dirt road has steep downhills, loose rocks, sand, and ruts. Riders who have no off-road bicycling experience, or who are not athletic will most likely find this trip too challenging. All riders should prepare for the trip by riding their bike on a regular basis prior to the trip.

Sample Itinerary:

Day 1: Meet group at Holiday Expeditions headquarters in Green River, Utah. A one and one-half hour van ride takes us to Temple Mountain near Goblin Valley State Park. The ride begins with a dirt trail that cuts through the San Rafael Reef, then parallels the uplifted rock faces. Upon entering the Swell, our trail heads west toward Hondoo Arch and Reds Canyon. We camp near the remains of miners cabins at Tomsich Butte.

Day 2: After exploring the remains of uranium mining camps around Tomsich Butte, we head north through the winding drainage of Reds Canyon. In the afternoon, we climb out of the canyons and up to the plateau called Sinbad Country. Our camp this night will offer us views of Iron Wash and the Head of Sinbad.

Day 3: We continue heading north this day. Along well graded roads, we cover almost 34 miles ending up north of Interstate 70. Our ride takes us across the open fields of Cottonwood Draw and Limestone Bench. The ride finishes at the San Rafael River with the structures of Windowblind Peak, Assembly Hall Peak, and Bottleneck Peak towering over our camp.

Day 4: This morning we take a leisure ride up Buckhorn Draw, stopping to explore many Indian pictographs and even a dinosaur footprint. After crossing Furniture Draw, we head south to the Wedge Overlook, also known as the Little Grand Canyon. Our van will meet us here for a two-hour drive back to Green River.

As we close the 20th Century our relationship with wilderness has changed. Wild places are no longer feared. Now their scarcity and value is recognized. We all started there. No wonder our spirits are renewed when we return. We've been going there for over 47 years. Sharing the most spectacular landscapes on earth...
