santaquin canyon & west mountain road bike - May 30, 2010
This 58 mile ride begins in Payson and climbs up beautiful Santaquin Canyon and then loops through the orchards around West Mountain. Santaquin Canyon is especially scenic and similar in many respects to City Creek and Millcreek Canyon with its overhanging trees, roadside stream and a narrow serpentine mountain road. We'll ride to the end of the pavement at Tinney Flat Campground, a climb of 2400 feet over 16 miles, and then rendezvous for lunch at a Santaquin cafe before spinning through the orchards and ranch lands surrounding West Mountain at the southern tip of Utah Lake. Meet Elliott (801-969-2846) in Payson at the park & ride adjacent to and immediately north of the Main Street McDonalds at 9:00am.
