Utah Motorcycle Roads and Trips

Incredible motorcycle roads can be found in each of the three scenery regions of Utah (UT): the Rocky Mountain region, the Great Basin, and the Colorado Plateau. The Rocky Mountain region is found mostly in northern and northeastern Utah. The Great Basin is found in the western third of the state and features arid sparsely populated areas with small mountain ranges and rugged terrain. The Colorado Plateau is found in the eastern and southern two-thirds of Utah. In this area motorcycle rides will wind through buttes, mesas, and deep river canyons. Roadside-amenities in some of these areas can be sparse so make sure you have a plan for where to get gas, eat, and stay the night.




*Map Key: Why do the routes have different colors? The colors are only different so one route can easily be distinguished from another.
