road bike: east canyon to lost creek reservoir

This 53-mile out and back ride begins at one of the parking areas in East Canyon. We'll ride UT 65 through Henefer and Croydon, then rise to Lost Creek Reservoir where we'll stop to refuel and congratulate ourselves for surviving the brief but steep climb to our turnaround. Overall, there's 3200 ft of elevation gain on this route, and the road from Croydon to Lost Creek is very rough in places. But you'll enjoy the scenic rural backroads with very little traffic. Restrooms are available at the start location and in Henefer and Lost Creek. We may have access to water in Henefer and Croydon but otherwise there are no services en route. Please be ready to ride at 9:00.
