“A ride from the the alpine of the Boulder Mountains to the red rocks of Capitol Reef National Park.”— Mike Henderson
Ride the road towards Bown's Reservoir and, after a couple miles, look for a sign that reads, "Tantalus 5". Take this left. The rest of the trail is fairly obvious from this point. Continue downhill parallel to Pleasant Creek. If you take the trail to Pleasant Creek, it will add a short out-and-back.
There is lots of downhill to begin the ride and then a short climb once you cross Tantalus Creek. The most technical section of the trail is near the pass as you cross into the park. Most of the ride is considered easy but this short section may be technically difficult.
