Buckhorn Wash - with optional add-on to The Wedge Overlook
Buckhorn Wash is a scenic ride on dirt road. It's a fairly popular mountain bike destination. As an out-and-back (to the top of the wash and back) it's 18 miles of very easy riding. The route is on an improved (graded and graveled) road, with an almost-flat grade of 1%. If you continue to the Wedge Overlook, you'll climb 1700 vertical feet total, for a ride of 34 miles. Highlights are the Native American pictograph panels in the wash, beautiful rock walls, and a stunning view at The Wedge Overlook.

Getting there, from the north:  Exit US-6 in Price, southbound on highway 10. Go through Huntington. (In Huntington, there's an alternate road that ends up at the trailhead. I haven't tried it.) As you approach Castle Dale 28 miles from Price, watch for a sign that says "San Rafael Access" and a broad dirt road on the left (heading east). There's a huge corral near the start of the road. Once you're on the dirt road, go 14 miles. Turn right at the Buckhorn Wash road. To ride from the top, park along the road.
From the south:
  On I-70, take the Sinbad or Ranch Exit 131 (formerly exit 129), 25 miles west of Green River. Head north. The road will veer east along the freeway, then turn north again. After 21 miles on dirt road, park at the San Rafael River. Start riding on the dirt road north in Buckhorn Wash.
