Roads: 349.8 miles USBR 77 pushed out of the Idaho border and south to the Cache Valley, named for the trappers who originally hid (“cacher” in French) their belongings and belongings here. From Logan, a college town on the Logan River, cyclists roll past Wasatch Front and the eeny, meeny, miny, moe towns of Ogden, Salt Lake City and Provo. The route climbs to more than 8,300 feet into Fishlake National Forest, where the aspens form a halo around the state’s largest natural mountain lake. The journey ends at Torrey, the gateway to Capitol Reef National Parkand join USBR 70 from Cedar City to the Colorado border. 40.6 miles USBR 677 there’s a more panoramic route along Lake Utah, a freshwater lake shaped like a butterfly’s wings. 88.8 miles USBR 877 bridging two other routes: USBR 77 in Sigurd, a small town of Danish origin, and 79 in Panguitch, northwest of Bryce Canyon National Park. 9.4 miles USBR 679 provide the missing link between USBR 70 at Duck Creek Village, a jumping off point for those heading to national parks and USBR 79, at Highway 89. 269.3 miles USBR 79 existed before this latest addition, but it stopped at the Arizona state border. Now, cyclists can ride the last mile from Kanab, an outdoor adventure hub and movie venue known as “Little Hollywood,” to Utah’s south exit.
