Sept 18, 2011 70 miles
Our main reason was to tour Bryce Canyon Nat. Pk, but we found many trails around the area. We camped at Ruby Inn, Bryce, Utah, after touring the Park for several days, we took off from the campground and headed thru the forest on trails and roads. Along the 70 miles that we rode, we saw red cliffs, lush green meadows, large aspen, ponderosa pine, valley views and cattle. Checked out King campground, a National Forest Camp, which was very nice, it has many trees, quiet setting and can ride right out of camp. There are numerous trails, north and west of the park area to ride and camp at. As we were ready to leave, folks told us about riding the "Red Canyon" area, suppose to be a great area. Next time!
