Starting off of Utah 95, this road provides a mellow and peaceful climb. Two wash crossings along the way are usually dry, though if there has been rain, it’s possible that you’ll encounter a sizable stream with fast-moving water.
Beyond the river crossing, stay right and enjoy pedaling up the road, which follows the side of the rock wall. The road becomes much rougher here, but is never too technical and stays full-width for the entire climb.
The views from the final switchback are stunning. Near the summit, the road has been directly cut into the mountain, which gives it a unique feel. The view from the top is a great spot to head back from. Otherwise, the road continues a bit farther to intersect with County Rd 228 and the hiker-only Posey's Trail.
