This weekend Tracie and I went up to Page to my brother-in-law’s to attend his wedding.
On the morning of the wedding, Justin said he wanted to take a short ride to clear his head, so, despite the cold, we headed out just as the sun was coming up.
The whole trail is about a 12 mile loop, but we only rode a little less than half of it, as his wedding was at 10:00am. The white line is the trail that circles the edge of the mesa that the city of Page sits atop of.
The part of the trail that we rode was fun and fast for the most part, with some drops that you could take or ride around. There are some places that have a lot of exposure and it is prudent to maintain control of your bike unless you want to plunge off a cliff.
That is one huge house up there, sitting on about 10 acres all by itself with 360° views…sweet!
Well, we did about 6 miles and made it back in time for him to get ready and get to the church on time, and without any trail gashes too!
Next time I go back up, I will definitely take my bike again and ride the whole loop…maybe twice!
