White Rim In A Day (WRIAD) October 19 2022
The White Rim Trail is a long 4x4 / moto / bike route in Canyonlands National Park near Moab UT. Depending on where you start and end it's anywhere from 90-105 miles. It's a classic mountain bike ride usually done over 3 to 4 days with camping and vehicle support, but also done as a single-day marathon adventure ride. Camping permits are very difficult to get (typically a year in advance) and guided tours are very expensive, so the single day option is good if you're fit enough. The route is quite remote with no water available, but you'll typically see some motorcycles, bike tour groups, and sometimes a park ranger.
