Riding east to west, the Burr Trail begins 7 miles north of Bullfrog marina and is an intimate ride of 72 miles to Boulder, Utah. The entire trail is a visual kaleidoscope of stunning landscapes, colours and with a some challenging riding thrown in.

Riding west the road is good tarmac for the first 15-20 miles.

The road climbs and switchbacks up a high plateau with dirt, pebbles, rocks, ruts and some sand. A dual purpose would be the machine of choice but this is nothing a street bike can't handle too.

The surface changes back to tarmac at about mile 35-40, but in a short while changes again. This time it is newly placed gravel. I'm supposing it's for winter because the surface below is tarmac.

The gravel portion must go on for another 10-15 miles through less spectacular scenes until arriving at the Canyon. This is scenically as beautiful a section of road that I've ever ridden.

Cowboy civilization raises its head only when nearing Boulder

The Burr Trail was a fabulous introduction to the motorcycle wonderland that is southern Utah. Highly recommended.
