Scenic route suggestions: Ut., & Co.

Four of us are planning a fast hard ride through Id. Mt. Ut, Wy and Co (not in that order). The idea is to hit Hwy 550 (Million Dollar Hwy) and the Beartooth pass.

Any suggestions for other must ride highways in Ut and Co? We like 'em fast, high and twisty!

thanks,

Frank & Co.

I've really enjoyed Hiway 12 in Utah, between Tropic near Bryce Canyon and Torrey. Then 24 to 95 down to Mexican Hat through the Moki Dugway. The dugway is a couple of miles of twisty dirt, but no real problem for the LT. Beautiful area. Spectacular riding.

In Southeast Colorado Trinidad to Walsenberg is highway 12, runs through Cuchara valley. An awesome ride if you are in the area.

Re: Scenic route suggestions: Ut., & Co.

In south east Utah just North East of Moab is U-128 , Going east on Hwy 70 from Colorado you go south on U-128. The first few miles is in the hight dessert , then you drop into the canyons & the road runs along the river for a few miles. HERE IS A short video I shot a few years ago .
