Start in Evanston, WY (southwestern corner of Wyoming) and head north on route 89. Once you cross into Utah, the route name changes to route 16. Continue on Utah 16 till Woodruff, UT where you want to turn left on route 39 and take this west all the way into Ogden, UT.
From Evanston, WY to Woodruff, UT it is quite flat but lush with the local farmland. From Woodruff to Ogden going over Monte Cristo is mountainous and very beautiful. Note: We made this ride on June 21, 2008 and there were still five foot snowdrifts on the side of the road at the top of Monte Cristo. Bring a jacket with you because it went from 90 degrees to 60 degrees in about 10 minutes. In other words, be prepared.
Perfect motorcycle roads with lots of twisties. Watch for campers vehicle pulling onto the road though. They can sometimes make muddy or gravely trails on the pavement.
Evanston has anything and everything you would want or need. Same with Ogden. Almost nothing in Woodruff. But through Huntsville and down in Ogden there are many different choices.
Aaaahhhh Monte Cristo. A classic and hard to beat. The highlight of this road is between Pineview Reservoir and Woodruff. A must-ride if you're in the area. I've done this over a dozen times. There's a mid-point while traveling NW, by some power lines. Everything before that is more technical/tighter, and everything past the powerlines going towards Woodruff is higher speed and more curvy.

Fun ride especially over Monti Cristo. Always windy from Evanston to Woodruff.
