|Three Fingers Canyon
Three Fingers Canyon is a destination ride along dirt road. You'll only enter about 100 yards into the canyon itself. (You can hike up further if you want.) At the end of the ride are panels of pictographs on the Navajo sandstone. The round trip is 16.6 miles. It's a fairly quick trip. Outbound was under an hour, stopping for photos. Return was 35 minutes. The ride starts at 4100 feet elevation on the edge of the San Rafael Reef. Total climbing will be 900 feet for the round trip.
