Anybody been to the Paiute Trails System? Trying to plan a trip out there and wondering if it’s worth it? Running 5-7 machines.
We'll be on the Papa Bear poker run this Saturday.I am planning to ride the Paiute trail area next week if anyone wants to join us. I am not a cruiser.
Droughts suck. If I wait until July then there is a chance of monsoon rains and mud.We'll be on the Papa Bear poker run this Saturday.
I hope our dust settles before you get there. It's hot, and really dry. The Sevier river between Panguitch and Circleville is as low as I've ever seen it.
Hot here in Durango, CO too. Touching 95 yesterday, though I imagine the high country is 20 degrees cooler.Droughts suck. If I wait until July then there is a chance of monsoon rains and mud.
Is it hot at high elevations? What is your advice?
Maybe I should go to Colorado first, then Utah.
So the valley floors will be hot and dry. But you head up the mountains, and temps drop off really nicely. We were just down in Marysvale in 100+ weather, temps up on Monroe Mountain were totally reasonable. The drive East out of Marysvale takes a while to get to the mountains, but Monroe Mountain is a lot of fun. Head up, see Manning Meadows reservoir, take forest service trail 156 through a burned out section of forest to an amazing overlook, see upper and lower Box Creek reservoir, and head into Koosharem ("k'SHArem") for a really good lunch. Koosharem is at 7,000 feet, so a lot cooler than Marysvale.After looking at the 10 day forecast for Marysvale, UT, I think we might head straight to Silverton for cooler weather.
You say that like it's a bad thing. 🤣 One of my favorite rides was through July monsoon rains... it poured cats and dogs for the entire day. We rode through it all - $25 rain gear sets from Scheel's, good boots, and some warm clothes under the rain gear, we stayed warm and quite dry - but the ride was AMAZING.Droughts suck.
