Written Directions

Start in Heber City, Utah. 1. Head South on US 40 towards Strawberry Reservoir and Duchesne for 50 miles. 2. Turn LEFT on UT-208 towards Tabiona for 10 miles. 3. Turn LEFT on UT-35 for 3 miles to Tabiona. 4. Continue on UT-35 for 4 miles to HANNA, UT (stop and eat, and have a slice of PIE!) 5. Continue on UT-35 to Francis (4-way stop) for 20 miles. 6. Go straight through the 4-way top on UT-32 to US Highway 40 for 10 miles. 7. Turn LEFT on US Hwy 40 to return to Heber (or turn RIGHT on US Hwy 40 to head towards Park City!) .

Scenery

The scenery is gorgeous from the time you leave Heber City - beautiful canyons and evergreen forests as you ride towards Strawberry Reservoir. Wonderful vistas of Strawberry Reservoir, with several scenic overlooks. Redrock canyons as you wind down through the canyon as you drop off the plateau. A few miles of flatland as you head through Tabiona and Hanna, and then you're back into the mountains again, with incredible views as you cross over Wolf Creek Pass and head through the twisties down to Francis as the road shares the curves of the scenic Provo River. From Francis back to Heber, you'll have gorgeous views of the Jordanelle Reservoir and the spectacular view of the Wasatch mountains and Deer Valley Ski Resort. You spend a lot of time traveling through the Unita National Forest. Beautiful ride!

Drive Enjoyment

25% tight twisty turns, especially around Wolf Creek Pass, 50% smooth turns and curves, 25% straight or fairly straight. 75% hills and mountains, 25% flatland. Excellent road quality on US 40 with passing zones (40% of the ride), average secondary paved two-lane on remainder of ride.

Tourism Opportunities

Heber City is a midsize town of 7,000 situated in a farming valley between the Wasatch and Uinta mountain ranges, and lies about 15 miles southeast of Park City, Utah at the intersection of US Highway 40 and UT Highway 189. Area activities include horseback trail rides, mountain biking, boating, fly-fishing in the Probo River (see the Heber City website for lots more). Along the ride, you can stop at Daniels Summit Lodge for a snack or a meal, but my favorite is Hanna's Kitchen, about halfway through the ride in (you guessed it) Hanna! It's a great spot to stop for breakfast - portions are huge, the fresh pies are fantastic and the prices are right. It's easy to spot, and open on Sundays for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (You'll find it easily - there will be lots of other bikes in the parking lot!) There's a scarcity of fuel stops along the route, so make sure you fillup before leaving Heber.

I live up here at 8.000 ft. outside of Heber, this is a GREAT ride. Elevation changes so if its warm down low you could freeze your bag off over the Wolf creek summit at almost 9600 feet. The fall colors are awesome, be careful of Sheep, cattle and especially deer. Heber has a great saloon called the Angry Bull, food is good and beer is cold. The Ride up Mirror Lake Hwy to Evanston is also a really good ride Ride Safe

I'm from Riverton, Utah which is just south of Salt Lake City. My wife and I did this ride in June of '07 as a day ride. Your description is excellent and right on. Utah has beautiful scenery and many roads perfect for motorcycles. The only thing you left out was the return trip back into Salt Lake. Don't forget about Provo Canyon! Use this route to return to Salt Lake to top off a wonderful day ride.

I do this ride all the time. If you get to the Francis to Hanna part before 9am, you will see very few cars. However you will be heading into the sun, watch out for deer at that time of the day. If you continue the ride through Hanna east to Duschesne, the cafe on the main street in Duschesne has the best breakfast in the area.
