Mountain Biking Utah’s White Rim Trail

Ride along the white rim layer of sandstone in Canyonlands National Park with dramatic canyons below and majestic red rock cliffs above. The trail leads to arches, towers and other fantastic rock formations. Visit an ancient Indian dwelling, trek into a slot canyon and hike in the famous Arches National Park.
The White Rim Trail, located in the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands National Park, is truly a special place. This classic mountain bike ride is one of the most beautiful that Utah’s canyon country has to offer. The ride is a perfect combination of physical challenges, exploration and scenic discovery. We ride along the “White Rim” layer of sandstone, with dramatic canyons below and majestic red rock cliffs above. The trail leads to arches, towers and other fantastic rock formations. Your guides will lead you on bike and on foot to explore the hidden treasures the White Rim offers. Visit an Indian dwelling of ancient times or perhaps trek into a slot canyon disappearing into the desert sandstone. The White Rim is the trip of a lifetime. On the four-day tour, we ride approximately 20 – 25 miles each day and spend our nights camping under the stars. On the fifth day, we will visit Arches National Park and hike to the famous arches. The act of embarking on a physical adventure in nature ties directly into the courage, curiosity and self-reliance aspect of Fountain Valley's core values. You will be physically challenged. Canyonland's unique landscape will make a lasting impression on you and the entire experience will open you up to the endless possibilities of exploration and travel.
