The Grand Staircase has been called a "world class view a minute." And it's true. Our bike tour takes us through the incredible Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. We begin at the wonderful Boulder Mountain Lodge in the tiny town of Boulder, Utah. After a hike along Calf Creek, we descend on the Burr Trail to Capitol Reef National Park. The Henry Mountains, the last mountain range to be explored in the lower 48, tower over the elaborate canyons which make up the Waterpocket Fold of Capitol Reef. After a great hike to the top of the reef, we continue our descent toward the shores of Lake Powell. This trip is a great way to see the heart of Utah's fascinating and diverse geology. With two nights at the lodge and three nights of camping, it is a perfect introduction to mountain bike touring, and riders of all abilities will marvel at the scenery.
