“Pedal a slickrock-strewn jeep road directly to the base of centuries-old Anasazi ruins.”— Brian Smith

As mapped, you can start from the free Comb Wash Campground, which features primitive sites and pit toilets. If you're looking for a shorter ride, you can cut out the graded dirt road portion of this ride by driving north along Comb Wash Road until you reach the Milk Ranch Point Road turn-off.
Shortly after the creek crossing, Milk Ranch Point Road splits off to the left at an unmarked intersection. The MTB Project mobile app may come in handy here. Within about a 1/4 mile, the road surface transitions from dirt to ledgy slickrock. If you've ever ridden in Moab (and liked it), you'll love this section of trail. There are tons of steep pitches with big step-up moves to navigate.
As you climb, stay left to check out a sweet overlook into Arch Canyon. Retrace your steps slightly, bang a left and continue with the technical slickrock climbing. Somewhere around mile 6.6, the grade lessens significantly and the tread transitions back to mostly dirt. In no time, you'll find yourself at the base of Hotel Rock and it's amazing Anasazi ruins.
Retrace your steps and enjoy the bombing technical descent back to your car/camp.
