In my comments on the Grand Staircase Escalante ride I mentioned that it was a great idea to continue on to Mexican Hat and then here it is!! This ride is the whole enchilada and and having ridden everything from Blue Ridge Pkwy and the Dragon to Beartooth Pass and the Trinity Alps ( and the real Alps too) I can say with complete confidence that there are few rides that compare to this ride across southern Utah. You will not be dissappointed!! Plan on getting up early and doing a full day - there's just too many Koadachrome moments to get through any faster. Please note: This is another one of those rides that has to be done in both directions to fully appreciate. It's simply awesome. Unless you want to stay at Ruby's at Bryce, Id recommend going another 30 minutes to Panguitch - the hotels are much cheaper and there's a great little BBQ place on the west side of the main drag. Highly recommended! And in the morning, get up and ride it back the other way!
