Lockhart Basin Riding

New terrain was had this past weekend. Lockhart Basin Road from Utah state hwy 211 in the Indian Creek Rec area camping at Hamburger Rock Campground. I had a great ride with Pete Eschallier and Paul Adams. We rode 70 miles with 5,039 feet of climbing on Sunday. The original plan was to ride to Moab and back but that was not happening with how long it would have taken. It was slower going than we had anticipated, and we were putting it down. I was tired. We turned back at mile 35 which was a great call or we would have been riding back late into the night. A great adventure still to check out new terrain. I'll be back!

Outstanding views all day!

Got in another ride on Monday with Paul to the Colorado River overlook in the park and connected some jeep roads back to camp. 27 miles. Awesome terrain out there in that area of Hamburger Rock. Great camping to boot.


Two Pauls! LOL!!  Fun pano pics.

You should call the Moab Travel Council for other cross country rides. in the season, I have taken the jetboat to Lockhart Canyon. Got dropped off and then I pedaled back to Moab.
Did you see the viral video? Mtn biking and going over the cliff to parachute to the bottom. I wouldn't do it, but it is neat to watch.
