Montrose to Nucla is all open dirt. Initially after Nucla is too. Then it turns into dirt roads through water washes with some Small creek crossings. Until the highway jump.

Re: Rimrocker/Moab

Gravel freeways are way better than Chicago freeways, maybe after we've been moved out to AZ for a while they won't seem so great but hopefully it'll take a while to get so spoiled

Ha. Anything beats Chicago highways (trucker nightmare that town was).

Re: Rimrocker/Moab

So to be more specific, the way I go is from Moab to the La Sal Mt. loop road, up to Geyser Pass road (there is a sign) and up and over Geyser Pass, and continue past Dark Canyon Lake, to Two Mile Road and head east on Two Mile Road. And that puts you back on the official Rimrocker route again. It's much more scenic and much faster than the RR trail. And it's a lot quicker than La Sal pass road.

Re: Rimrocker/Moab

I just did the majority of this on a 250CC dualsport fully loaded, that was a blast!

Instead of the last section of the La Sal range into Moab, we dropped down to the highway and rode into the city of La Sal, and then spent the night at the 3 Step Hideaway.

Much more enjoyable I would imagine than the Jeep.
